Hey Everyone! I've recently started working on a new project with a good friend of mine, and we're hoping to get some feedback.
The landing page is here: www.montfor.com
The problem we're trying to solve: You browse hundreds of websites daily, every day. And yet if you want to look at your history in a comprehensible way, it's really hard. I learn a ton of stuff online (blogposts, articles, tweets, youtube videos, etc...) and yet I have no overview of what I've learned when/where. I'd love to have that kind of organization, and that's what we're trying to build.
The long term vision: Long-term, we want to not only give you awesome visualizations and ways to organize and review your activity, but also offer a way to help self-learners prove what they learn online. Currently if you learn topics on your own outside of university or the like you get no proof, no certificate, no nothing. We're hoping we can change that, and provide our own certificate that states person X has spent ZZZ active hours on topic Y, and is therefore an expert in it and a top candidate.
The revenue model: We're unsure about this yet, but we have a few ideas. We could either connect our users with companies and offer them interviews, receiving a hiring commission in the process (these are generally really high, but it's a big hassle to act as a hiring agency). We could also provide content recommendations á la youtube homepage or instagram explore (should be good since they're based on your activity) where we sprinkle ads in, or just make the software paid. Suggestions welcome! What we never want to do is sell users data (I'm personally huge advocate against that).
Since we're really early stage, we'd love to have some feedback! Give me your worst :P
