New interactive startup community transforming the way entrepreneurs launch businesses

This isn’t your father’s business school. The world of startups is changing and voices from around the planet are being heard on a new interactive social media platform called the Idea Factory.

How many world-changing ideas have we missed out on? How many brilliant entrepreneurs have had their voices go unheard? For generations, we’ve looked to elite business schools and wealthy heirs to bring us our future leaders. And where has it gotten us? In the 2020s, the world has been changing faster than we could have ever imagined, and we need our leaders changing right along with us.

The founders of the Idea Factory, along with their quickly growing community, are ready to bring us that change — — in a way that makes sense for the new generation. With a social media style approach to building businesses, the Idea Factory is revolutionising entrepreneurship.

Why spend years and tens of thousands of dollars on business school when you can learn real and relevant information from people who have been there and done that? It’s the question that the Idea Factory asked when they launched their own start-up in the summer of 2021.

As entrepreneurs from around the globe flock to the unique interactive community, the Idea Factory has jumped to number one on Telegram. With 18,000+ members looking to the channel daily for startup advice, it’s become a hotbed of innovation. Browsing the site you’ll find thousands of ideas and hundreds of live pitches. Members come from every corner of the world to do one thing: dream big.

So, what’s the big deal with the Idea Factory? Why are they an overnight success? Well, for one, it’s free. Jump into an entrepreneurship boot camp, chat with experts, perfect your pitch, launch your business, and get support every step of the way. You don’t need money to get a business education and you don’t need connections to meet the right people. You don’t even need to be tech-savvy. The Idea Factory has a smart bot that will walk you through the entire process of pitching an idea.

The Idea Factory has a panel of industry experts who chat one-to-one with budding entrepreneurs and offer live webinars. For dreamers who wouldn’t typically have access to CEOs and business school professors, it’s a game-changer.

Simply connect to the Idea Factory’s Telegram channel and you’re looking at a one-stop-shop. The modern social media style community offers daily news and education, mentorship programmes, and the opportunity to pitch business ideas in front of the world. Best of all, taking a cue from Facebook likes and Reddit upvotes, everybody looking at pitches can simply “like” the business concepts that interest them. For investors, that’s built-in market testing. For entrepreneurs, it’s a chance to get the next big thing in front of people who can make it happen.

And the competition gets fierce. Like a Dragons’ Den brought to Reddit, every week there are contests and entrepreneurs fight to get the next $5000 award. Popular pitches are connected with mentors and, of course, along the way, everyone gets expert advice and as much feedback as they can handle.

Is this the future of entrepreneurship? Only time will tell but for would-be investors looking for fresh ideas and start-ups looking to get a real shot at success, it’s a new home.
