New blockchain platform vows to shake up startups with collabvesting

Wednesday 02 December 2020, 4:55 AM AEST - 1 month ago

A project with big ambitions to become the biggest blockchain ecosystem in 2021 and beyond is building a platform where companies can discover talented freelancers, entrepreneurs can develop business ideas through crowdfunding, and passionate investors can get involved with startups they believe in.

Ideaology says it is creating Active IDEA because there is an urgent need for a productive, digitally focused, self-sustaining environment where businesses can be nurtured and careers can thrive.

In time, its hoped that aspiring businesspeople will be able to turn their vision into reality with the help of a community who can offer financial support, advice, and the services that are needed to get a new company off the ground.

Amar Kovacevic, Ideaologys co-founder and chief technology officer, said: Ideaology is keen to provide opportunities for freelancers, startup founders, and investors through the Active IDEA platform. It's the vision that fuels our mission.

Many of them are running their independent business from their websites or agencies, and looking for clients via advertisements, email marketing, leads generation, and other techniques, Ideaology founder and CEO Khaled Alkalbani added.

A prototype of Active IDEA has already been built — and Ideaology is determined to eliminate some of the common pitfalls with market-leading sites, which often take hefty levels of commission after connecting freelancers with clients. According to Ideaology, a common problem among the top three platforms is that freelancers arent always given the space to showcase all of their talents — making it difficult to convey their real skills.
