What are the premium features?

Some examples would be:
- Idea boosting where you can pay a small amount to have your idea listed at the top of our list
- File upload and storage, so you can attach documents like videos and photos to your idea so people can understand it more clearly
- In-app messaging so you can communicate with other people on the ripen platform more easily :)
- Any many more...!

Minimum viable product :)

Thanks Rob! Yes MVP stands for 'minimum viable product' and is a version of a product with just enough features to be usable by early customers who can then provide feedback for future product development. A focus on releasing an MVP means that developers potentially avoid lengthy and unnecessary work.

Give me some examples of the discrimination you are describing.

We interviewed over 50 people in our research process. One theme we came across was that women founders often struggled to access funding. Through more secondary research, we then discovered that women-led startups received just 2.3% of venture capital funding in 2020. There was a research paper by Ye Zhang published in October 2020 with more examples of discrimination, which you can access here:
