About Your Company
Evest is a mobile application organizing matchmaking between start-ups and investors. It allows startup owners to present their company or browse through investors to find their matches on the investor side. And vice versa for the investors. Each side starts by filling out basic information about themselves / their company, and their criteria for the other side. Based on this information, Evest will filter and display qualified candidates from the other side. Our target audiences are startups and investors such as PE, VC, and other institutional investors, etc.
Obtaining funding from investors is one of startups' biggest challenges. More than half of the startups fail within four years, and more than half of their failures are either directly or indirectly related to the lack of funding. The fact is, many startups have great ideas, and could potentially be extremely profitable, but investors don't even notice their existence because there is no systematic platform for them to showcase their company. The goal of Evest is to solve this problem, to give startups a platform to be known, to give the investors exposure to these startups, and to make it easy for both of them to connect with each other.

Top 3 Things
Informative, easy to use, modern and stylish.
Make sure to design both UI and UX.
I really like the 3D effects that people are adding to their apps by using shades and different layers.
In terms of colors, I am open to any color except red and pink.
For the home (feed) page, I want the list to look kind of like the winner's submission's second image from this link: https://www.crowdspring.com/mobile-ui-design/iphone-location-finder-app-2293293/entries/
but ore modern because that was made more than 9 years ago.
