Frequently Asked Questions

What is Starcycle?

Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), Starcycle is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution designed as a business co-founder to supercharge the way you run and manage your businesses.

What kind of businesses can use Starcycle?

While we are currently optimizing for small and medium businesses (SMBs), Starcycle is designed to work for businesses of all sizes and across various industries. Whether you're an early stage FinTech startup, a one-person bookkeeping service, or a coffee shop owner, Starcycle can learn and grow together with your business as your AI co-founder.

How does Starcycle work?

We’re still in development, but Starcycle will be jam-packed with a variety of features and products that can be packaged and customized to meet your needs; our AI engine is infinitely personalizable, making Starcycle a one-of-a-kind service for you. Everything will be cloud-based so you can take Starcycle with you anywhere you go.

What kind of features does Starcycle offer?

Our first feature in beta is our AI Business Planner! Ideas, big or small, all have to start somewhere — and we hope Starcycle will be your perfect ideation companion at this stage.

We have a lot more features in the works as Starcycle shapes up to be your AI co-founder! You can get a sneak peek when you log in to your Workspace, or you can stay in the loop via our newsletter or social media. Send us an email to hi@starcycle.ai if you have any feature requests!

How is Starcycle using AI responsibly?

Since AI as we currently know it is still in its infancy, we are committed to maintaining as much supervision and quality control as possible to ensure the best results we can, and minimize any risks and “hallucination.”

For the time being, Starcycle is built and optimized in English for maximum quality and consistency. As our systems improve and grow, we hope to support a wider variety of languages in the future.

Additionally, we have built in buffers and checks within Starcycle, where we have a mix of humans and algorithms reviewing and cross-checking outputs and research before they are finalized and pushed to you. These guardrails mean you may experience waiting time between outputs and other automated functionality. That being said, all resulting outputs are still 100% AI generated and we encourage you to review and verify everything independently.

We’re open to feedback and thoughts on how we can continue to steward AI responsibly. Please send us an email to hi@starcycle.ai.

What is Starcycle’s policy regarding data and intellectual property?

At Starcycle, we understand that ideas are your intellectual property, and we will never use your ideas as our own. Therefore, we do not save any copies of historical data on our servers. Should you choose to delete any information created on Starcycle and/or your account, you will not be able to recover them. Any potential changes to this policy will be announced so you can continue staying updated.

Does Starcycle offer any special perks for small businesses or non-profits?

Let us know in your waitlist signup that you’re a small business or non-profit — we’ll fast-track your spot so you get to try Starcycle faster!

How much does Starcycle cost?

During our beta, Starcycle will be available for free! We will announce any changes to pricing structures in the future, but we aim to always keep a free tier to keep opportunity and entrepreneurship accessible.
