As an early-stage startup in the social media space, FanFaves is focused on the democratization of social media publication and consumption. The FanFaves' platform empowers content creators by providing direct monetary benefits for content creation and the engagement on that content. This approach will create happier creators and more loyal fan bases.


The Challenge

Architect and build an online content and social media aggregation platform for a small technology startup. Key innovations:

  • Support construction of both staff pre- built and user-curated custom content feeds, to be updated in near real time.
  • Aggregate traditional online content (RSS feeds, etc.) with social media streams, in editable, near real time data feeds.
  • Construct novel, multi-platform user interface for feed building, searching, sharing, and content consumption.

The Solution

Architected and delivered an innovative content aggregation and curation platform. Key components:

  • "CTO + Engineering in a Box" Engagement Model
    1043 Labs moved a full Engineering team into place, with a de facto CTO, moving resources in and out as dictated by the development timeline.
  • 1043 Labs Accelerators
    Our pre-built user auth and security packages helped meet the highly aggressive 90-days-to-prototype requirement - without cutting corners.
  • Cloud-Based Development and Delivery
    1043 Labs' AWS expertise further accelerated front- and back-end platform development. Security, microservices, SQL and NoSQL DBs, queueing, load balancing, etc. - all enterprise grade from the beginning.
  • Rapid Prototyping to Support Fundraising
    From slideware to demo ware in 90 days.
  • Comprehensive Web App with Proprietary Architecture
    It's fast, and it's gorgeous.
  • Native Advertising Integration to Demonstrate Revenue Generation
    The ability to demonstrate live advertising revenue was a key fundraising support requirement.

The Results

Success! Early prototype and subsequent beta release, with native advertising integration, drives active fundraising activity. 1043 Labs architected, built, and maintains the platform, which is currently in a limited commercial release.

"Given the challenging nature of the product we planned to develop, we looked at several firms that could potentially meet the demands. From the very beginning of the process, 1043 Labs stood out as a clear leader. Their technical expertise along with their culture were a great fit. Working closely together, we built a high volume, high ability, API driven cloud based architecture that can scale as we grow our business. I'm glad to say that we've found a true partner to work with and look forward to continuing the partnership as we evolve as a company."
