"It's the last thing that isn't available online. Guruumee provides 'wisdom on tap', offering up honest answers and bespoke guidance from qualified experts.

App startup Guruumee introduces a new learning experience that pairs users with qualified experts in various fields to help them learn, grow and achieve their goals. In just one week since the launch of its Indiegogo campaign, Guruumee has already raised over 30% of its target – garnering a great deal of support from people around the world who want to fund the app's development and bring it to market.

There is an infinite number of ways in which Guruumee can be used to aid in one’s personal development, providing users with the motivation and guidance to make positive changes in their lives. As the network of Guruus expands, there will be limitless potential for the number of topics for which users can seek assistance, including:

  •     Legal advice
  •     Learning a new skill or language
  •     Match-making
  •     Business development
  •     Fashion advice
  •     Rehabilitation
  •     Perfecting an art form
  •     Marriage counselling
  •     Fitness and personal training

Users search the app for a mentor with whom they personally interact via video and text. In a private forum, they can discuss and share their progress with their Guruu's other followers, making for an effective group learning environment. One-off mentoring is also available, allowing users to ask a specific piece of advice from an expert in any field.

To ensure that users receive quality advice and assistance from Guruus who are invested in their personal development, there is a rating system in place. Followers rate their Guruus on a scale of one to five based on various criteria, so future followers can rest assured while searching for a mentor who can help them achieve their goals. There is a small cost per Guruu session, and a minimum of 5% will be given to a charity of the Guruu’s choosing.

“Whenever we want to make positive changes in our lives, the internet is usually our first stop on that journey – but, there is so much general information out there, it’s hard to know exactly where to start or what to do next,” says Simon Connors, founder of Guruumee. "Our app puts you in touch with accomplished individuals who are invested in your personal growth, so you can get the knowledge you need to succeed - straight from the source”.

Guruumee was founded by Nottingham natives Simon Connors, Chris Allwood and Paul Mark Quinn. The trio came together to create an innovative solution that allows people to obtain honest and reliable advice on any topic from an actual human being - while finding common ground with likeminded individuals. Their campaign will run until December 12, 2016.
