We want to ease the process of buying someone a present that they would love. Why does it have to be so difficult to buy a good present?

On the one hand, if you want to buy a good present you need to invest a lot of time and effort to get it right. On top of that, if you want to buy the present with other people, it can easily become quite a burden. What are we going to buy? Who is going to buy it? How much will it cost by person? Who has to pay who if there are several presents?

On the other hand, we also want to reduce for our users the probability of receiving not-so-good presents. Our family and friends want to gift us something special, but sometimes a little hint could go a long way and avoid that kind of awkward moments that we all have experienced when you receive a present that you don’t really like.

We want to leverage technology to make all our lives easier. Everyone loves to make good presents. We love to receive good presents. So we thought, why don’t we put some simple tools together in order to make it as smooth as possible?

That is why we want to develop a social app that allows it´s users to see each others hobbies and specific wishes (i.e. specific products/services they would love to receive as a gift), while at the same time providing a set of tools in order to ease the process of buying presents together with other people or alone: calendar with upcoming birthdays, chat groups to buy presents with integrated voting capabilities, smart expense split to know who owes what and to whom, and even paying platform between peers.

Once we get enough users, the main way of monetization will be to offer Ads services to third parties to advertise their product/services through our platform, with the advantage that they will be targeting directly a very relevant segment that is already looking for something specific to buy.

On the other hand, we want to support local businesses by offering them a service to help them launch their ecommerce and to connect with a relevant local audience through our platform.

Recommendations

Deseo is the app to make 100% happy to your friends, contacts, family. Just it is because you be right every time you have to get a present for anyone close to you. Moreover you can split the cost between the rest of the people and, for me the most important thing is your elective come from you close shoppings (increasing sustainability of a little shops).

I have been their teacher for the preparation of all project and I know pretty well the quality of their work and their pasion for doing the things in the best way.

Finally I recommend them for the huge opportunity they have found.
