Vator Splash Finalist: YouHaveIWant

YouHaveIWant can help you match your 'wants' and 'haves' with other people. Think used items!

New York-based YouHaveIWant, competed a few weeks ago at our Vator Splash event in San Francisco.  The company's co-founder, Vik Panda presented his pitch on stage in front of several hundreds of entrepreneurs and investors.  Here's the video we captured and a summary of what the company is working on.

Real-time matching is what this startup is all about.  YouHaveIWant is an alternative platform for buying and selling items from user to user.  The company uses P2P, location-based technology that matches people based on their 'Wants' and 'Haves.'  For example, say I'm looking for a new Fender guitar, I submit a 140 character message to YHIW, and if there is a match, YHIW lets me communicate with whoever may have what I want.  Simple as that.

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.
