PaaS = Platform as a Service
«Platform as a Service – PaaS» is a platform-based cloud service that allows users to develop, run and manage applications without the complexity that comes from building and maintaining the infrastructure typically associated with developing and launching an application.
This is how Improve Startups AS was established in autumn 2020 where we wanted to offer the most complete platform to link Startups to Competence and Capital through a professional network of various players.

Process 1: Review the portal
We arrange a time to go through the portal so that you get a certain first impression of which functions and services we offer to your members.
Process 2: Company Profile – Person Profile
Company Profile and Person Profile are set up where the aim is to set up the company’s profile as well as respective consultants under our «Consultant» page. Here, our combined resources will be presented and, based on the services provided, these will be set up in the portal’s competence portal. These areas then become searchable for their members. We use a structured template for this work where we ask you to enter your information.
Process 3: Booking
The company and person profile’s expertise and services are set up in the solution’s booking module, where your members can easily search for, confirm and find consultants that match their needs. Furthermore, the member will enter when they are free for a meeting and the system searches for the next available time for a consultant. As of today, consultants must update their own calendar manually, but the goal is to get integration with Google and MS Outlook so that the calendar is automatically updated at all times. If the service is payable, payment from the member will be made before the actual meeting and the transaction will be managed by their company, which will then pay a share of the purchase price back to the consultant by further agreement.
Process 4: Marketing Social Media
After further structure and agreement, we profile the collaboration on selected social media such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook. We are sending a finished template for this «Social Media Structure» which we will use as a template going forward. We can advantageously share this via Google Drive for real-time updates.
Process 5: Webinar and Forum Structure
In order to define current topics that you can implement in a Webinar, you will be sent a document that structures the type of Webinar and forum you will hold in the future. This will be part of the training process on how you set up and conduct such Webinars with internal/external participants. As of today, Zoom is integrated into the solution and you must have your own account there or you can use other digital video meetings such as Teams, however this is not integrated into the solution.
