Strengths
says, "This is an intuitive product that I could not only see myself, but all my friends and family, wanting to use. I think there is a massive potential market here and a super straightforward business model. The initial plan to test locally via a pilot and then spread to other markets is also very wise and should help the team get solid feedback before trying to scale."
Advice
says, "While there are direct competitors in other markets, I feel it could take a little while before any one of them becomes large enough to dominate at a national or global scale, and so there is room for multiple businesses to succeed in this space. I think the key will be in the team's execution of their vision and expansion into other markets, and being able to scale efficiently and keep up their momentum as they grow."
