    Hi Daniela, do you have an idea as to the costs to develop and market the App. Many entrepreneurs have good business ideas but when it comes to launching they can’t bootstrap the idea and try to go down the investor route which usually leads to failure. Also, have you ideas to monetise the business if you find customers that want the App?
