“AHA" MOMENT:
Around the world, the use and integration of online social media platforms have grown at an exponential rate. With new relationships being made every day in multiple channels this renders the potential of important contacts being forgotten or lost in the shuffle. Garden Mobile has developed an application that gives people the power to cultivate better relationships.

THE BIG IDEA:
Garden Mobile is an online social relationship manager created with the intention of helping individuals maintain and grow their network connections into meaningful and useful relationships. Garden Mobile provides the user with the tools they need to stay up to date with the current activities of their most crucial connections with an innovative news feed, automated reminder system and auto generated emails the user has preset within the platform.

WHY THIS IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:
The current market offers platforms to help grow your network, but no platform offers the service of maintaining these relationships after they have been made in a private setting. It is not just about who you know, but rather how well you know them. Garden Mobile’s users are frustrated at the amount of relationships they do not maintain on a consistent basis. With current market spending at billions of dollars each year on services from online platforms, no competitor has created a service to fill this gap in the market.

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
Garden Mobile plans start-up cost through the use of personal credit lines, grants, and angel investments. With funds raised on the Exchange, Garden plans to use startup capital to cover in-house technical expenses, legal fees and a marketing campaign.
