Serial entrepreneur creates new information portal to help those impacted by the COVID-19 lockdowns build new start-up businesses in the platform economy.
Sydney, Australia -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/21/2020 --Platform Executive today announces the launch of its new digital platform, to help both new and experienced entrepreneurs to build, grow and manage their businesses.
The portal aims to become the de-facto home of the platform economy for those impacted by changes to the economic landscape, including the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns
The COVID-19 lockdowns have massively impacted the economy and accelerated change across a myriad of industries. Some jobs will never return.
Commenting on the launch, Rob Phillips, founder of Platform Executive said, "In terms of business support, the Chamber movement concentrates on employment law and advocacy for the top end of town. They are irrelevant to the start-up ecosystem and most small businesses. At the same time, the majority of consultancies are staffed with new graduates that have never started and grown a business… and likely never will. It's a real problem and I want to help counter the scarcity of good information and advice available to folk, so we have built our own solution".
"We will do things at break-even and keep the cost to our members at an easily affordable level, hopefully with input from HNWI's willing to commit time, money and knowledge to the community. Eventually, we may become a NFP, although I am somewhat reticent to start a business labelled as one at present."
The portal launches with a suite of information and problem-solving solutions:
News: Platform Executive coverage includes some 500 news article per month, produced both in-house and via premium news agencies
Knowledge Library: A growing library of business advice articles and Excel business models covering everything from capital raising through to operations, revenue generation and exit
Interactive Models and Templates: A collection of high value business models, interactive templates and files covering important aspects of building and operating a digital SME
R&A Reports: 3,500 SWOT reports written in-house by analysts and senior executives covering both companies and dot-com properties
Additional Databases: The portal features a large database of academic research papers from many of the leading educational establishments in the world
Advisory Services: Consulting solutions aimed at solving specific business challenges, from audience development and marketing efficiencies, through to platform development and commercial model
