The competitors of Aloa act essentially as matchmakers. This aspect brings relevant competitive advantage to Aloa’s business idea. The founding team has been on both sides of outsourcing software, and thus exposed them to this gap in the market. Given their experience on both sides of the equation, Aloa has the core skills needed to be an enabler for other startups.
