Startup new Model is raising: Software to software

By July 26, 2019 No Comments

When it comes to startups we differentiate Business to costumer model, business to business modes, maybe business to business to costumer model, but lately there is a new model that is hot and investors are putting a lot of money in it which is software to software model. The naming software to software is invented by myself, I was analyzing the new trends and noticed a big number of products are built for end software. Software to software products are useful tools that are designed to be used by other software, the end software may be used by big company or by a freelancer, the end user that own the end software is not important, what is important is the end software that uses the product.
