Web host and domain name provider GoDaddy
has announced the launch of ‘Flare’ – a “first-of-its-kind, community-based app that helps bring business ideas to life”. GoDaddy, which has headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States, was established in 1997. The company is a globally recognized brand as it has offices and facilities in a number of countries worldwide. It has 14 million customers globally and manages in excess of 62 million domain names. GoDaddy specializes in offering smaller companies the tools they need for an effective web presence, and it services extend to web hosting, domain name registration, website builders, productivity solutions, and online security. Flare enables users to share and gather feedback within a “trusted community”.
Flare users can receive guidance from friends, other entrepreneurs and industry experts. It offers a means to collaborate with others and a way to “drive new concepts or ideas forward”. It allows business ideas to be immediately put forward so that others can immediately consider them and turn ideas into opportunities. Flare also “enables people to give back to the community by becoming advisors”. People can share their expertise in a particular area with people who need advice. It offers an accessible and easy-to-use interface that has the look and feel of social media. The Flare App is currently available in the Apple Store and an Android version will be available in June.
"Everyone has ideas, but too often they don't go anywhere," explained GoDaddy’s Vice President of Emerging Products, Rene Reinsberg. "We created Flare because we recognized the need for a community where people can get impartial feedback on ideas and connect with others to help them turn those ideas into something meaningful. Whether you've just had a fleeting thought and want to explore where you might be able to take it, or you've been dreaming of creating your own business your whole life, Flare is the first place to go for someone that wants to take the next step."Do you know of any other companies launching forums for business ideas?
