What’s missing from Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, eBay and Alibaba
Facebook connects friends. LinkedIn connects professionals. Google provides intelligent
search results, eBay provides a passive B2C platform and Alibaba is China centric
platform. TraDove connects business partners.
While, LinkedIn serves some of the B2B purpose, it is mostly used for HR and job
seeking and not for business purposes. We have addressed the following four issues
that have not been met by LinkedIn:
1. Relevancy. LinkedIn are general purpose. People on LinkedIn are getting contacted
for all kinds of people. If you contact them for business, that purpose will be diluted.
2. Asymmetry. While selling people do not mind using LinkedIn to contact buying
people, buying people are much less willing to use LinkedIn to contact selling
people as they come to LinkedIn mostly not for business reasons resulting in low
3. Credibility. Most of people on LinkedIn registered with public email, making it very
easy to fake identity and profile which is not good for business purposes
4. 3 factors. People, products/services and companies need to be seamlessly
What Does TraDove Offer
TraDove, Inc. (“TraDove”) was founded with a sole mission, to address the basic needs
of each company to better buy and sell by creating a business (social) network that
connects corporate buyers, sellers, products, services and companies. We will be able to
allow any company to market and advertise to another company over the internet their
products and services in a targeted and precision way.
Products & Services
1. Business Network that connects people, products/services and companies and
provide a private business network to companies (i.e. supply chain social network)
and industry associations, etc.
2. B2B Cloud for companies and sales people to store marketing collaterals (specs,
white paper, picture, video, etc.)
3. B2B Big Data, Machine Learning and Analytics for intelligent matching for people,
products/services and companies
Problems Solved & Key Value Proposition
Address the basic needs for any company by helping them to buy and sell faster and
1. Shorten the cycle for buyers and sellers to find each other
2. Solve the information asymmetry problem in the B2B space and make B2B more
3. Allow precision based company to company advertising over the internet
Market Place, Competition and Positioning
The total B2B marketing spending in US is $26B out of which $4B is online. We believe the online market will increase significantly.
Google, Facebook and LinkedIn are mostly consumer or individual players. They do not approve their members and emphasize quantity of the traffic. TraDove is a business play. We emphasize quality of the traffic. Our value per user and profit margin will be higher.
TraDove sells the opportunity to have a sale but not the actual sale transaction as we believe business needs a hand shake and the web cannot do it all. We believe our model is much more scalable than a transaction site (B2B1.0).
As a B2B 2.0 company and unlike B2B 1.0 companies like Alibaba, sales people in our site can actively approach buying people instead of waiting to be found.
Ultimate Goal & Vision
The marketing effect for B2B is different from consumer. In consumer space, it is users
who generate users. In the B2B space, it is opportunities that generate opportunities. We
aim to create a go to place for companies to advertising to companies over the internet
in a precision way, just like Google does in the consumer space and eventually create a
B2B Eco System that anyone who wants to do business will come to our site, a
multibillion dollar company.
TraDove BBCoin Offering
TraDove will create an ERC20 standard token (“BBCoin”) on the Ethereum platform and
will issue such tokens to Ethereum wallets. Potential corporate demand in our
ecosystem for BBCoins for B2B sales, marketing and international trade can be in the
tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars.
