Ice Breaker App Inc


Ice Breaker App Inc aims at revolutionizing the communications industry. The goal is to connect people and their phones seamlessly by allowing them have conversations across the room with whom they have not already met. The app keeps track of their location and lets people know when others are trying to talk to them through notification. There is a growing problem with human connectivity these days and it arises from the social phenomenon of dating sites like Tinder which use cheap impersonal means to connect people. This highly evolved app promotes healthy interaction and personal communication while also having a great time. Ice Breaker App is the leading technological idea in its class of communication in its approach to promote self-expression in situations where it otherwise would go unnoticed. It promotes a world of continuous ongoing human interaction like never before.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Young single adult people and the venues they go to. Generally college areas. A lot of local restaurants with restaurant chains everywhere. Combined with a mix of party-goers and introverted types.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Icebreaker gives people a reason to take the chance on meeting someone new. Icebreaker is a symbol for the future, being that every day someone can attempt to message someone new and change the entire trajectory of their lives. Icebreaker uses geo-fencing to give venues the promotion they deserve.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

IPS will allow our customers to have an easy time with trying to find a person who they can visually see but have to virtually place on a screen. Anonymity will allow our customers to be comfortable and allow them to be themselves when talking to other people who they would be too nervous to start up a conversation with.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

By making a product that utilizes preferred features found on different apps to create a 'super app', if you will. Our team is balanced because we have the ability to deduce market imbalance, as shown in the features Icebreaker offers. Over 5 new features and counting are being added to Icebreaker that the market hasn't been tapping into. My team and I create strategies that depend entirely on having first-person experiences in the market we are launching.
