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

Üdo, a mobile app marketplace for outsourcing daily life tasks, is unique in that no one has fully figured out the how behind the need but many are trying. New attempts are coming to the market with some speed demonstrating that the market is ready and the technology is available. Many of these are small players that do not have the full implementation vision. Others are well-backed tech guys who are remiss in understanding the true customer. That true customer lives in the middle of the map as well as on the coasts, but their needs may have varying nuances. If we figure it out here, we make it work nationwide, and beyond.

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?

Our founder and CEO is a professional, full-time, single mother who is highly engaged in her community, family and business. She lives the problem. She sees the solution. She has the vision to capitalize on the technology available and the timing of a market ready and willing to use on-demand assistance. While the market shows it is ready, we are still first to market with the marrying of AI, remote and boots-on-the-ground assistance. Further she is illogically passionate about its ability to work. She has a huge network of professionals, supporters and experience. She has hired Crema located in the crossroads in Kansas City as her initial product design consultants and will engage them for the build of the initial technology. With the acquisition of proof of concept funding, the founder's priority will be to attract and bring on the right co-founder(s) to complement her visionary and sales skills and round out the team.
