What is rinkl?

 

Imagine you’re a passionate content creator with a large audience; a wild-camping expert, model train enthusiast, productivity ninja, retro gaming pro, pilates instructor, singer-songwriter…

 

rinkl is a secure and flexible 1-to-1 video messaging platform to enable you to answer your communities questions, give advice, suggest recommendations, offer reviews, fundraise for charity, record soundbites for podcasts, receive commissions for songs, deliver exclusive content, review reward codes… and that’s just scratching the surface.

 

You set your own rate, curate your own profile, tailor rinkl to suit your exact goals and content. Whether you’re niche or mainstream, a household name or just warming up. rinkl has been designed with creators at its core.

 

What stage is rinkl at?

 

After 5 months since raising initial funding, along with another raise in Jan ‘21, our founders and highly talented contracting team are on the verge of bringing to market the next brilliantly designed version of the desktop and mobile apps.

 

rinkl has a marketing spend in place, with plenty of runway for 12 months, in order to optimise our products and scale the user base, in order to achieve series A funding.

 

About the founders

 

Jack Burke, CEO, a former YouTube employee and filmmaker who understands the content creator landscape intimately. He’s created numerous content campaigns, working alongside influencers, for major global brands such as Adidas, Pinterest, Google, Booking.com and eBay.

 

He’s also a creator in his own right, with 750,000+ views on his YouTube channel to-date. Jack’s passion, energy and commitment to rinkl also saw him enrol in a full-time coding course enabling him to build the front-end of our previous MVP, which help secure our investment.

 

Guv Marwaha, CTO, was the first engineer at Resi, a VC backed start-up disrupting the architecture industry. He scaled the product team to 7, working directly with the serial founders. Guv already has one exit to his name as well, having built Kaampus that was acquired by Gradtouch in late 2019.

Over the last 3 months, an external UK agency has been building our mobile app, which is now approximately 90% complete. With the contract now finished and in conjunction with our recent funding, we are now looking for a highly talented and passionate individual to complete the app and so reiterate and optimise over the next few months.
