Products & Services offered
Genflow is a brand-as-a-service (BaaS) platform that helps influencers develop their brands, sell products and generate revenue from their audiences. They accomplish this by adopting several techniques such as planning, traditional branding, marketing strategies, and product design.

The startup manages every aspect of the brand including:

How does the process work?
Genflow is approached by influencers who present to them a business idea or a question of what brand to launch. The startup then utilizes their in-house built software; “Genlytics” in deciding the type of brand based on factors like analytics, previous brand partners, breakdown of their followers and potential sales value.
Once the above is carried out, Genflow incorporates the client and kicks off the brand building process. They offer two broad branding options:
- A social media platform with gated content, mobile apps, membership clubs and more.
- A D2C e-commerce platform selling physical products.
