Since today, our public Beta will be made available to everyone across the world. Regardless if you are a faith-based community, businesses, brands or even influencers, you can directly sign-up for the CollabDeen platform to start building and amplifying your audience's engagement.
Simultaneously, during the launch, we were busy feeding ourselves with cakes.
Ironically, we, the founders of CollabDeen, (having previously worked in investment banks and globally renown startups) felt no pressure at all.
Yes, we were anxious.
And absolutely yes, we were just excited as everyone else during the launch.
We just didn't get the pressure bite! And it was just another regular working day at the office for the following day.
A little over a year and a half ago, we started working on an impressive idea which was then, just a dream. Fast forward to 15 months later, we've accomplished milestones.As the saying goes, "The dream is free. The hustle is sold separately".
More than money, we invested time, blood, sweat, relationships, social life into this dream we called CollabDeen.
This launch is a new beginning for us. It marks our new journey into the next phase. From where we have started, we are almost crossing into the line for the Global Beta Launch phase now.
Come the global beta launch, we will be experiencing the REAL WORLD. This is where the REAL WORLD problems need to be solved with our technological solutions. At the scale we are doing, there is absolutely no one who has ever attempted to do it. For that, Alhamdulillah, we are sincerely humbled.
We're the world’s first to marry Faith & Lifestyle on one platform, for 2 billion Muslims, specifically GUMMYs (Global Urban Muslim Millennial Youths). Using emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality, Geofencing, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
Since our last year's LaunchGood campaign where we tested the market with our idea, to getting tens of thousands of people logged onto CollabDeen platform and increased their connection with their communities.
While in beta we've got 100s of app ratings and reviews and most of them are 5 stars. I can't remind you enough that this wouldn't have been possible without your support and Alhamdulillah.
In our beta-launch, we created and tested 87 faith-based communities across the world, with about 3000 people.
The Future is Now
The SUNRISE of 5th May 2019 is historical to us, and also to the history of all Muslims. All these years, we are always discussing about our glory Islamic pasts and the rich Islamic history each time the topic of Islam arise. But this will soon change. Wit our technological break through, people will now have a brighter topic to discuss about when they speak about Islam. They will discuss topics of the future, where technology and knowledge continue to revolve. They will discuss on how will they change the state of the world, making it a harmonious , advanced and sustainable place to live in.
Who We Are
CollabDeen is not a religious platform, CollabDeen is a social technology product that fits into the lifestyle of Muslims. Their aim is to make the platform affordable and sustainable for global communities.
What's next? The biggest challenge to enter the growth phase for any startup is the product-market fit. Without product-market fit, there’s no growth. In fact, growth hacking should ideally begin after you achieve product-market fit. Starting growth hacking activities before the product-market fit is like carrying water in a leaky bucket. So, all our team’s efforts and financial plans will be focused on achieving product-market fit first in the next few months, including Ramadan.
We've set plans reasonable for people to adapt, they can start for free and move on to different subscription plans (pay as you go). We've given away hundreds of subscriptions already this way and plan to release free version, to begin with, the feature we have. We're working on reducing our monthly subscription price to make it more accessible, especially for the developing countries, where the majority of our users are.
Latest Upcoming Feature
Up next, we're quietly working on our next solution. It's our pleasure to announce to you our Community Emergency Response: SOS. Immediately after the Christchurch incident, we start prioritizing one of our unique features to a great level, and you will be seeing our project on LaunchGood soon.
Our People, Our Assets
I would like to let you know that having such a creative and intelligent team makes all the difference. This include the support we received from the founding partners and investors who not only trust us, but more importantly are also our advisers. In a nutshell, we are like one big supportive family. Sincerely, I would like to thank all CollabDeen team members for the sacrifices and efforts that you have done.
