Online PR News – 29-January-2014 – London/UK – The German born, serial entrepreneur Simon Schneider today announced his newest startup: the crowdsharing platform Zyncd.
Schneider says: “We live in a sharing economy demonstrated by the successes of such companies as Uber.com, couchsurfing.com and AirBnB. The Economist recently reported that the consumer peer-to-peer sharing market is worth $26 Billion and according to Opinium Research the average annual benefit to participants in this market is over $600. Given this, my colleagues and I have created Zyncd, the first crowdsharing application that enables businesses and consumers to share what they have in order to aquire what they need.”
Zyncd is a crowd-sharing application where people can contribute their skills and other surplus items to realize important projects they care about. Zyncd combines the best elements of crowdfunding with a sharing economy platform. Millions of people around the world have already pledged over $3 billion to thousands of crowdfunding projects they care about, from social projects to business opportunities. But Zyncd goes one step further as our proprietary and indirect-matching software enables a crowd of geographically diverse people to combine resources to complete projects – without the use of money.
With Zyncd, corporations can match their customers’ interest to design new products, universities can match their alumni’s time to mentor students and groups of neighbors can combine and match their resources to build something of value to the community.
Schneider says: “Crowdsourcing was yesterday, crowdfunding is today and crowdsharing will be tomorrow. We believe that Zyncd will be a major player in this new market.”
Zyncd is incorporated in the UK and is a proud recipient of investment from Telefonica’s Wayra accelerator program.
