Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

Small businesses, and entrepreneurs.

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

Big data analytics is very hard and complicated. That is a huge problem for entrepreneurs and small business, who have not been able to become active participants on this technology because the resources and skills required to utilize this technology are too expensive and too complex.

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

Think of hero# as the big data analytics out-of-the-box for the rest of us. It allows to explore, swipe and visualize large amounts of data with no knowledge of the complexity behind the data infrastructure and skills required to process it.

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?

Because of the private nature of data in businesses, big data analytics competitors such as the leaders Tableau, Microsoft, and Qlik, have specialized their platforms in working with private data silos of large and medium enterprises. On contrast, hero# works on public big data provided by the local and federal government among others sources, which is of open access but unprocessed. Our technical goal is to become the experts in public big data.
