Business description: Fountain helps you whenever you’re stuck on a problem, by connecting you with a highly rated expert who can help. In under 5 minutes you’ll be connected 1-on-1 through video chat, text and photos with annotation. Whether you have a gardening, plumbing or design project, we have the expert you’re looking for. Fountain was borne out of Aaron Patzer's frustration with answering basic questions using the internet. While the internet is great for finding facts and documents, it often falls short for anything personal: home, health, relationships, pets, and anything nuanced: business, personal finance, and legal decisions. By contrast, a live, two-way interactive conversation provides far more useful information - often far faster - than searching, sifting, and endless Googling. The wider goal of Fountain is a new type of search: plain English typed or spoken is understood, and the asker is connected instantly to the person most qualified to answer and assist. We are using artificial intelligence in the service of connecting to the most powerful intelligence: another human.
