'SmartUp' is a new mobile app that provides young entrepreneurs with virtual access to mentorship. In many countries across the world, young people lack a proper platform for connecting with those who can advise them about their business ideas and new ventures. A group called 'Founders Forum' decided to combat this lack of mentorship by developing an app that would address the global audience of potential entrepreneurs.

The SmartUp app is designed to help future entrepreneurs as well as those who are in the early stages of starting a business. The app works by building a profile of each user and asking them the same kinds of questions that investors and other business mentors might ask. The app will then take this information and deliver targeted advice that will help users solve any issue they might be facing.

The ultimate goal of the app is to provide young entrepreneurs with access to mentorship and useful advice that will help them make better business decisions.
