THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:

Beaconly is an app developed to solve a problem of having to keep “tabs” on multiple items in your everyday workload in your browser and other apps.

Jira Issue tickets, Trello Cards, AWS System Status, BitBucket or Github open pull requets you need to visit, unfinished Confluence tasks you keep forgetting about?

Now they all appear in your macOs menu app, one click away linking back to the original service. With 400+ extensions (and growing), including crytpo, task management, or issue management any work can be streamlined in one menu.

Martin is a Software Engineer, that worked in multiple tech companies in his life, ranging from PHP, C#, React into Swift projects.

WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:

Developers, Project Managers, System Architects, Crypto Enthusiasts, Software Engineers, Product Owners, Agile Coaches

LESSONS TO SHARE: What 3 key lessons from your startup journey you’d like to share with aspiring entrepreneurs?:

Beaconly is young, fresh, starting startup, full of ideas and potential, trying to penetrate the market and see our tool is worth it.

The road-map has dozens of features outlined I’m each should bring the app to higher level, with graphs, oAuth logins, and custom extension builder and ability to submit extensions coming.
