what we like
🧠 learning for today: Insightful understands the way users want to learn: through short, mobile videos
- 📈 creators: the creator economy is expanding across industries and platforms, and Insightful provides a dedicated place for educators and experts to monetize their insights
- 🔀 algorithm: by providing users with videos that cater to their interests, Insightful will keep users on the platform for hours
🤼 competition: there’s an overwhelming amount of educational content across social platforms, so Insightful must work to keep itself differentiated
- this is crucial if they plan to charge users down the line
- 🎥 reliant on creators: Insightful’s content is as good as their creators; could creating videos in-house fill any subject gaps?
- 🚨 regulating content: as the platform scales, will Insightful continue to require creators to apply, and if so, how will this effect growth?
- startup founders dream about the day they join the unicorn club, a status that validates their business and proves their growth at scale 🦄
- Choco is the hottest food tech unicorn, building a hassle-free platform that connects thousands of restaurants and suppliers around the globe
- interested in working at the intersection of food, tech, and joining the unicorn club? they’re hiring!
why Insightful: rather than killing time scrolling through social media, Insightful gives users a sticky, accessible, and personalized platform to learn something delightful 📖
