Concept Name

Trader’s Square


High Concept Statement

The essence of the sharing economy: a trading marketplace. Trade & Share any commodity including your time.


Status Quo

If someone has something they don’t want/need then they can trade it for something else that they find more useful. If one doesn’t have money to buy a product, then they can trade for it instead.



People are trading with their friends but their friends may not have everything they need. Competition: TradeMade, Let go, eBay



People can set the value of the commodity themselves by how much need they have for it. No money is required to acquire the commodity you want/need. Just Trade one or a few things for it.


Revenue Model
