Appstori

What do they do?

Crowdsourcing exclusively for mobile apps. Allows entrepreneurs to vet an idea, find beta testers, serve up awareness, recruit talent, and raise cash. Gives mobile mavens the opportunity check out the next hot thing, offer feedback, and participate in the building process. 

Why are they special?

  1. Encourages anticipation and provides context for apps in the pipe
  2. All-or-nothing funding structure supports principal and encourages rapid product iteration
  3. Addresses a favorite question for every project: “How do you plan to make money?”
