Moonfare is an investment platform that enables professionals to invest in top-tier private equity funds. Their goal is to challenge traditional companies that offer the same type of product. The Moonfare team’s made up of highly experienced professionals who bring great value to the product. The company needed skilled engineers to build a platform that would reflect the level of professionalism of the creators. The main challenges included:
Making the application scalable as the business grows.
Creating a UX design that would match the investors’ expectations.
Gaining users’ trust.
The Moonfare team turned to Netguru as a trustworthy technology partner. Netguru took on the challenge of creating a product that would command trust, fulfil strict security standards, and provide an amazing user experience. The team, made up of three developers, a Project Manager, a QA engineer, and a Product Designer, started working on the project at the end of 2017. The process went as follows:
Rewriting code from Sails to Node.js.
Designing interfaces and implementing them using React.js.
Configuring the whole architecture in AWS.
After 3 months, the MVP was released, and now the team is working on the second version of the product. Moonfare is satisfied with the cooperation with Netguru and they treat the external team as a part of the Moonfare family. Thanks to efficient cooperation, Moonfare continuously grows and keeps achieving successes in the industry, including:
Closing their first funding round with $11 million pledged.
Attracting widely-recognised, huge-name funds.
Providing professional investors with a user-friendly and effective alternative to traditional investment.
