The purpose of the project was to allow Instagram influencers to promote local businesses and global fashion brands in exchange for items and services. I delivered an MVP for the back-end portion of the app for the Startup Bootcamp Accelerator program. It was written in Node.js, using Azure cloud. A colleague managed iOS development. Together, we were chosen as one of the top startups and accepted into the program. Shortly after, we attracted PRADA Group. The project has been a success, attracting hundreds of users in just a few months.
