New Delhi [India], Oct 5 (ANI): Cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures GoDaddy has announced the launch of community-based app Flare that helps bring business ideas to life.

First of its kind app that empowers people to share ideas and get guidance from friends, Flare will include a feature 'Top Charts' that helps to make it easier for entrepreneurs to gain supporters for their ideas.

It will showcase top 20 most popular ideas within the Flare community on a given day, giving users who may have missed the idea in its validation stage, an opportunity to follow the idea and provide feedback.

"We are committed to developing innovative technologies, products and tools designed to empower entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses to communicate, collaborate and grow their businesses," said Managing Director and Vice President at GoDaddy India and Australia, Rajiv Sodhi.

"The Government's push to the 'Start-up' community through multiple initiatives and improving ease of doing business is likely to promote the entrepreneurial activities further in the country; with several business ideas seeing the light of the day. Flare is where the seeds of ideas go to be nurtured and developed," added Sodhi.

"We created Flare because we recognize that whether you've just had a fleeting thought and want to explore where you might be able to take it, or you've been dreaming of starting your own business, Flare is the first place to go for someone that wants to the take the next step," said Director of Product Management and Co-Creator for Flare, Tina Nguyen.

Flare features a simple, easy-to-use, elegant interface reminiscent of popular social media feeds, which quickly gives feedback by swiping left/right to dismiss or be reminded of an idea if it becomes popular.

Entrepreneurs and followers can post comments, questions, and updates to promote more engagement and interaction, and spread ideas by easily sharing them via social media. (ANI)
