Raising money for my startup and have some questions about which platforms to use.

I am heading a startup that is creating a new food delivery application that will run on a different model to the current market competitors, and we are currently entering the phase where we will be pursuing investors and venture capitalists.

I had a friend of mine recommend the website askforfunding.com, but I and my partner had never even heard of this site before today. I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with the site, and if so, what is your opinion and or review of it.

To add to this, if anyone has any other suggestions for some websites to access such resources, we would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you in advance!

Got an SAAS idea, don’t know what type of coding language I should use.

I’ve had this idea for a while now and as it involves my industry, I can notice that there is significant demand for this service. For context, it will be similar to craigslist or eBay, it will connect buyers to sellers.

I have learnt very basic HMTL, CSS and decided to skip JavaScript and jump right into Python. I’ve been recommended Python numerous times so I decided to start practicing and looking up courses yesterday. I don’t know too much on Python but am I on the right track? Is Python necessary for building a service similar to Craigslist or eBay? Tips or advice?

I want to start an app but don’t know what pricing model to use.

I want to start an app but one of the main features of my competitors isn’t going to be in my app. I’m thinking to either have it as a SaaS, for about 3$ a month. Or a freemium model, that gives the users ads and limited features unless they sign up for a premium membership, which would also be for around 3$ a month. Can you guys please give me suggestions. Thanks!

Copyright and “fair use”

I am working on a web app that accepts crowdsourced content. Among other things that will be posted to the site by its users will be images of objects that likely have copyright claims. I have seen websites post this kind of content and affix a “fair use” logo/message next to the image. Do you think this is fine? I have looked into “fair use” stipulations and they seem to apply to this kind of content (given that the web platform can argue that the image has been posted for educational purposes). I have noticed that legal terms and disclaimers of all sorts are written in a way that invites argument, ie. “having copyright claims protection X but fair use policy works around it because of reason Y.” Are the companies that claim fair use just hoping that nobody will sue them? Or do you think they have a good copyright lawyer who told them what they could and could not get away with?

Also, any discussion/advice about reacting to claims of copyright violations are welcome and appreciated.

Unique savings maximizer lets you sell coupons you can’t use.

Checkout Saver, which has been available to shoppers since its launch in 2015, offers a powerful new way to triple your savings on purchases from AliExpress, WalMart and a wide variety of other popular, national retailers.

The service, founded by former Tiger-team security analyst-turned entrepreneur Justin Wynn, is designed to give shoppers more control over their spending power. It does this in three different ways, but the ost revolutionary is how it handles unique loyalty coupons that vendors share with major buyers.

Have you ever received a unique coupon code from a vendor or online retailer? These one-off, auto-generated codes usually offer significant savings, but only if you buy more things almost right away. Many of these codes come from niche vendors, and will expire long before a second order is ever placed.

Checkout Saver provides a viable multi-user marketplace in which users can re-sell their unique coupon codes to other users who require savings but don’t have a purchase history with the coupon-issuing vendor. Instead of savings going to waste, coupon sellers earn a little cash, and new customers can enjoy the same deals as long-time customers.

Reselling your unneeded coupons is just one of the three ways Checkout Saver helps you save money at checkout. The app is also part of an extensive network of retail chains, all of which issue regular members-only savings codes, all of which are automatically stored in the system and applied whenever you make a purchase at any of the in-network retailers.

As all coupon transactions happen privately, inside Checkout Saver’s own network, you get to enjoy savings from many great stores, all the while keeping your personal information safe and secure.

In addition to coupon sales and automatic coupon tracking, Checkout Saver offers users further cost-cutting assistance by paying users a cashback amount on common purchases. The cashback percentage varies, from 5% for clothing and shoes up to a whopping 35% cashback on some travel-related services.

Checkout saver is available from their website at checkoutsaver.com and has already built up a strong following of loyal customers. It is a “Great extension that works with a lot of stores,” according to user Jessica W. “Super simple, it just pops up when I’m on a website it works with, click to activate and I’m saving money!”

Dan M. concurs, in a 5-star Google Review. “Since privacy is important to me I appreciate their commitment to keeping my info mine. Super easy to use and really does save a lot of money.”
