I understand what you are looking for and I believe I have the right connections to assist you. I however, would like to talk to you in private about this. I have many connections around the globe in VC Firms that always look to acquire new assets such as yours.
Please message me on here with some details so I can assist you!
From my experience I would first contact one and wait a day or two till you get a response -- if any and then proceed to contact another journalist at the same publication. I have found this to be more effective than to contact multiple at the same time.
Your best bet would be to look for a pre-made source code and just edit out what you want to add in/remove. From my experience it is far easier doing this than paying a developer to make one from scratch -- if you're on a low budget. Also as far as I am concerned there is not a single CMS which has a native IOS app specifically for what you want to do, however I could be wrong.
Check out markets such as Chupamobile and CodeCanyon and see if they offer anything that you are looking for.
If you need any help regarding the business plan/monetization, let me know, I am here to help :).
I'm afraid that the only possible way is through promo codes. If I am not mistaken the person who wants to buy your app in Bulk wants to give it out to patients individually correct? Not that it is a hospital or such where they could simply use the same apple ID to login and put it on all their devices.
From my experience the only solution is through promo codes unless you release the app for free and approach a different monetization model.
I would love to have some specifics to perhaps help you out a bit further, I am currently offering a one time 15 minute free call so just go there https://clarity.fm/giulianosenese/free15
and schedule a call if you need it!
From my experience I would not advise you to go with Venture Capital when you're a start-up as in the end they will most likely end up screwing you. A much better source for funding would be angel investors or friends/family.
The question of how much equity should I give away differs for every start-up. I remember with my first company I gave away 30% because I wanted to get it off the ground. This was the best decision I ever made. Don't over valuate your company as having 70% of something is big is a whole lot better than having 100% of something small. You have to decide your companies value based on Assets/I.P(Intellectual Property)/Projections.
I assume you have some follow up questions and I would love to help you so if you need any help feel free to call me.
I have registered over 20 companies in the last decade and from my experience I can tell you that every country serves a different purpose. I run a small gambling company that I have registered in Malta due to the legality of online gambling there. I have another company registered in Delaware, whilst my main company is registered in the Netherlands. If your business is only online I would advise you to register it in Europe or if you must in the United States in Delaware/Nevada. Credibility wise I would say that registering your company in Singapore or Malta or Costa Rica, will not benefit you much opposed to say Delaware or The Netherlands.
I am available for a call if you need anymore help. I am currently doing a promotion for a one time free 15 minute phone call so just send me a message for the discount code.
From my experience it is best to assemble a sales team and make them do some cold calling. I believe that speaking to start-ups personally will gain you more companies to post jobs on your platform.
I would also advise you to go on LinkdIn and look around the job listings there to see which companies are offering them; then contact them to perhaps post on your platform.
You should show them why you are better and why it will benefit them from posting on your platform versus others. I believe that finding the companies through LinkedIn and such will make you able to attain a large customer base rather quickly.
If you need anymore help feel free to give me a call. I am currently doing a free 15 minute consultation so just message me for the discount code.
I have been in the Mobile space for the last five years and this is one of the most recurring issues my clients come to me with. What you should do is analyze how many different apps there are for that specific game. For example if your app is another version of 2048, you're going to have a hard time attaining market share unless you have a vast amount of capital. I would advise you on creating a advertising campaign to attract more users to your game. However, before putting more money into it, do research on wether it is even feasible doing so due to the vast amount of apps that are already out there. If you have any follow up questions, I am available to take your call. I am currently doing a one-time free 15 minute call so send me a message for the link.
You mention a variety of different ideas here that although tie in to your main concept, are all over the place. I think that in order for you to understand wether it is feasible or not you will have to narrow down your concept. What I advise you to do is to write your concept down as if you are explaining it to a five year old. If you can do that then you know what you want and from there you can analyze wether it is feasible or not. But as you said if two major corporations have tried it and quit then there must be a reason for that (e.g: Too much capital required vs too little potential profit).
