Startups, Peakium Spaces is set to radically change the way new business ventures are born.

The web app’s features are completely free to use, and entrepreneurs only pay a percentage of sales once they are pulling in profits. Eliminating technical hassle by providing a focused dashboard, users can set up physical and digital delivery, recurring payment methods, custom automation for every process and integration of a multitude of payment methods, whether it be credit card, PayPal, bank transfer or the new currency gaining momentum: bitcoin.

Dan Schultzer, Co-Founder of Peakium Spaces said, “When you’ve just started a new business, you’re all ready and raring to go, fired up with so much motivation. Then you have to create your page and all the technicalities can really dampen your spirit. We designed the platform so that entrepreneurs with big ideas can just get going with no hassle whatsoever. We wanted to keep the whole process light and fun and yet wholly effective so that bright business minds can focus on what really matters.”

Operating as a fun and effective launch pad to test out ideas and receive critical feedback, businesses can find out what works well and what doesn’t in the daunting world of e-commerce. With a flexible payments system allowing single or subscription payments, automation of payment and shipping flow, as well as integrating useful marketing services such as MailChimp, Peakium Spaces makes building an online business easy.

The company’s vision is to help fledgling start-ups live their dreams and succeed in business, making a strong statement from the get-go to invite in potential clients. Absolutely free to get started, numerous businesses have utilized the Spaces platform including sites focusing on monthly mystery T-Shirt subscriptions, Mexican candy subscriptions, business mentoring platforms and an online store selling mountain socks.

The easy-to-use app simplifies processes so that companies needn’t deal with the hassle, stress or confusion of doing it themselves. By building a landing page with Spaces, users are able to focus on the creative side of the business without being bogged down by technical limitations and jargon.  Peakium Spaces also handles all functionalities including payments, which can be a time-consuming task.

As more and more people turn to entrepreneurial activities, Peakium Spaces is useful for those looking to start a main business or simply earn a little extra income from home. Chais Meyer, one of the first users of Peakium Spaces says, “It’s great how fast you can launch a business with Spaces. They have such an easy and beautiful interface, and their support is amazing. It was a joy to start my monthly t-shirt business with it. To anyone who is looking to start a new online business, go check out Spaces.”

Mr Schultzer adds, “The businesses that have launched with us so far have already garnered a lot of success and we’re set to see that continue. We’re excited for more entrepreneurs to get on board with us to see how they can make the app work for them.”

ARMED WITH SCIENCE

Whether using the GPS, calling people on your cell phone, or even watching TV, satellites play an important part in our daily lives. But did you know how big of a role the military plays (and has always played) in securing our skies? Satellites are critical to the support and defense of our country, especially for military forces. By operating around the globe, they provide the best vantage point to provide everything from global communications, to sensors on orbit, to ship monitoring, and even weather and oceanographic conditions.

But what happens when you need to work on a crucial machine like a satellite when you can’t get close to it in space? With space robotics, of course.
