I really like BoardVital's concept of crowd-sourcing content creation in fields (like medicine) that regularly need updated professional grade content.
I had the pleasure of spending some time yesterday with the founders of this startup. This is a fast moving team with a concept that could really take off in areas like medicine.
I suggested to them that to accelerate their growth, they should focus their initial sourcing on publisher agreements. After our discussion, their plan is to focus on a few small publishers, license their content, prove the business case, and then license from the larger publishers in a revenue sharing arrangement. They have already started reaching out and I think if they can prove the model, this business will grow even faster than what they have already achieved.
It's a great team with impressive progress already. I would like to continue working with them and mentoring them through the process.
