You can make it entity based. For example , brand it for an elite group usage.
You can also make it server based, where entities , like universities, clubs or companies, can use it for their internal network to reach each others.

First you need to develop a business model for your application. How are you going to make money, who is your customer, how much you believe you can charge per customer and what is the value they get from your application. Then you need to figure out how to acquire those customers. No one can give you a definite answer here, figuring out a business model, value proposition and customer acquisition strategy and executing on them are all crucial components every startup needs to figure out by themselves.
