What if there were a way that you could say what you want, and instantly be matched with someone nearby who has what you are looking for? This is exactly what YouHaveIWant does.
YouHaveIWant is a P2P, location-based, real-time exchange that matches people based on their 'Wants' and 'Haves.'
Users submit a 'want' or a 'have' in 140 characters or less, and receive alerts when we find their match. If both matches are online, users can use our instant messaging feature. Throughout the communication process, YHIW maintains their privacy.
YHIW is changing the way people buy, sell and exchange goods & services by making it a real-time, mobile, and social experience. People just say what they have or want in a sentence, and YHIW does the rest.
YouHaveIWant will employ a 'Business Listener" service that feeds leads from consumers to businesses. Small businesses will pay a subscription fee for access to these leads.
The basic P2P version is free, though we also plan to employ a 'verified' seller subscription fee to ensure the quality of listings.
YouHaveIWant's has the competitive advantage of:
1) Being the first mover in the location-based space to use real-time matching for items services, and social interactions.
2) A strong, seasoned Management team with extensive business, technology, and online media experience.
3) A solid network of mentors in the NY consumer internet space.
4) Our own platform, so not fully reliant on Twitter/FB.
