The Tech Startup Genius app guides users through the stages of starting their own company.
Designed for people looking to start their own tech company, the free mobile app Tech Startup Genius helps users through the early stages with a series of flash cards containing information about important people, organizations and buzz-words they need to know. This new method of business coaching, available for the iPhone and iPad, was developed by entrepreneurs in the New York and Silicon Valley start-up communities.
The iOS app, from Brainscape, can be used to test your knowledge on the go. There are four categories: People you should know, Orgs you should know, Company formation basics, and Fundraising basics. You can either choose a category to answer questions on, select ‘Random mix’ to answer questions from all of the categories, or search through the flash cards to get a refresher.
After you’re shown a question, you tap the screen to flip the card over and see the answer. Then the app asks how well you knew this and you can rate it from 1 (not at all) to 5 (perfectly). If you say you didn’t know the answer, the card is thrown back into the mix and will come round later for you to try again.
