Two pieces of news provide a flicker of hope amid the doom and gloom.
ATLANTA, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Can an Ex-con create a multi-billion dollar marketplace? Tom McMurrain believes collaborative filtering 'match-maker' algorithms and geo-location-aware technology will redefine business discovery and traditional business networking in a way you never thought possible. The crowdnetworking® wave is coming and the business community will embrace it because this mobile app technology solves a major problem that every company has…new business discovery. Handing out business cards at conferences and networking event is ineffective and inefficient. New crowdnetworking® apps like Crowdentify® are going to automatically seek out high value target market customers for your business.
Smart phones will scan countries, states, cities and conferences like an aircraft radar connecting members who are most likely to do business with each other. Think Uber.com, but instead of finding a black car to take you to lunch, crowdnetworking® apps connect you with potential customers, strategic partners, investors, media contacts and much more.
The founder of crowdnetworking® has a compelling story…
Finding peace and inspiration in prison was the last thing Tom McMurrain, the founder of crowdnetworking®, ever expected. It was also the last place he ever thought to find the answers he was looking for in life. When Federal Judge Hunt handed down a sentence of 87 months in prison for mail and wire fraud, he could never have imagined he was actually forging the next 'virtuoso' in the 'crowd' industry. After leaving the gates of prison, Mr. McMurrain could honestly say that he had found peace in one of the most challenging places on earth.
One of his mentors, Hubert Humphrey, the insurance team building magnate who recruited and led some of the largest sales teams in the world, stated, "If you want to create a multi-billion dollar company, you have to identify a massive problem in society and match it with a massive solution". Good advice and McMurrain is following it.
So, what massive problem does Mr. McMurrain feel he can fix with "crowdnetworking®"? He says, it's the same problem the dating industry solved with online dating websites using collaborative filtering technology. He believes the fear of meeting people, building relationships and becoming a 'Value Creator', a term introduced to him by one of his mentors Larry Benet, the author of The Art of Connection, is a major problem, not only in the US but globally as well.
"Crowdnetworking®," Mr. McMurrain says, "will redefine traditional business networking as we know it and make it more proactive, productive and profitable".
Can an Ex-con create a multi-billion dollar marketplace? You might not want to bet against this guy. He has a clear vision, the problem in the marketplace is real, and the technology that he is using to solve the problem is also being used to create multi-billion dollar valuations on individual companies like Uber® and Whatsapp®.
