The market for startups and investors has become more crowded than ever with increased competition where everyone wants a slice of the cake. Talented young minds and great ideas are often overlooked, as there are simply no avenues to showcase their efforts or matchmaking opportunities. The pioneering of a social platform will seek to address these problems and create added values in the process. This digital space available to startups and investors will have limitless potential in creating business value with increased visibility, connectivity and amplification. The voice of startups will be heard above the roar of the crowd and investors are presented with channels to explore their investment options based on their risk appetites or preferences. The development of the platform will follow the SDLC process. Prior to the commencement of any developmental work, project planning is carried out to ensure the project follows a regulated structure to meet its’ deadline requirement. Additionally, critical reasoning is performed to identify the functionalities and requirements. The design of the user interface and the system architecture is prepared with precision toward the project’s goals. The choice of the developmental tools together with the implementation approach is also discussed comprehensively. An initiative to develop APIs could be largely attributed to the recent increase in use. This motivated an entirely new effort and additional resource into this project. Having APIs allows standardization of data as well as allowing other developers to tap onto this resource, creating mutual beneficial takings. All in all, the proposed platform represents a forward-looking opportunity, which seeks to assist the start-ups and investors’ market, offering a platform to maximise individual business value.
