MTUNConnect® is a platform “Where Inventors Meet Investors”. It is a Research Innovation marketplace that will enable site owners to connect small businesses, either from Startup, Incubators or SME (known as “Investor”) with Inventor or Researchers offering every business service imaginable.
MTUNConnect® is a global community built around research innovative and creativity projects. We developed MTUNConnect® to help bring innovative and creativity projects to life.
In MTUNConnect®, “Inventor” post projects and wait for the Investor proposals. As projects start getting proposals, “Inventor” are notified via email and within their dashboard.
“Investor” can browse all proposals from their dashboard at any time, and from there, select the best candidate for each project.
Investors apply to projects considering the project skills, budget and delivery time.
We’ve built the MTUNConnect® platform dedicated exclusively to raise capital from investors.
The dashboard is the main hub for all the main actions in MTUNConnect®. From there, inventors and investors can monitor their activity, view notifications, view purchases, edit projects, edit proposals, cancel projects, cancel proposals, etc…
Posting a Project
“Inventors” can post projects at any time. The project form is simple and self explanatory but can be extended with custom fields from the backend.
Projects can be paid or posted for free depending on the payment settings (see ‘monetizing‘ for more details).
Applying to a Project
Investor can apply to any project as long as they have the required credits (see ‘monetizing‘ for more details). Only one application per project.
The workspace is the main work hub for “investor” and inventors. When both parties agree to work on a project, a workspace is automatically created on each user dashboard. It will contain the project main information as well as any additional attachments and also contact email addresses.
From the workspace, participants can control the project/work status and will be able to:
- Cancel Project
- End Project as Complete
- End Project as Incomplete
- End Work as Complete
- End Work as Incomplete
Obviously, “inventor” will always have full control over the project, so they can cancel or mark the project as complete or incomplete at any time. When the project work ends or is canceled, both users will be able to leave their reviews for the project.
There’s no integrated communication channel in this time. Project participants communicate with each other with a “shared” email set in their profile. This “shared” email is only visible to participants in workspace.
Reviews can be added by project participants when the project or work ends.
