OUR AMBITION

We are focused on public empowerment and we aren’t waiting for change to come from the top. Governments around the world are failing because they have no effective tools for measuring the needs of the people they govern. Our goal is to provide a platform that allows everyone in the world to participate in local and global politics; giving us the metrics we need to change the conversation from top down, to bottom up.

KEY FACTS

  • First Global Politics Network
  • No Government Dependencies
  • Designed for Global Participation
  • No Direct Competition
THE BUZZ ABOUT WE POWER

“WePower app is taking political upheaval off the streets and into the palm of your hand.”

DETAILS

COLLAPSE ALL
Why are we creating WePower?

We want to improve government and corporate accountability. We are frustrated with government representatives and policies not representing the best interests of the people they govern.

On a personal level, Adam our CEO spent 4+ years working closely with a DeBeers whistleblower to expose the use of diamonds in money laundering, corruption, and perpetuating resource wars – Along the journey he was questioned by the FBI and threatened/sued into silence by former CIA. Among many lessons learned; Don’t fight fire with fire.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ~Buckminster Fuller

What is Direct Democracy?

Direct democracy is a form of democracy in which people decide policy initiatives directly, as opposed to a representative democracy in which people vote for representatives who then decide policy initiatives.

What’s new about what we’re making?
  • WePower is the first network designed for global politics
  • We have no government dependencies.
  • We have no direct competitors.
  • We are designed for global scalability.
How will we make money?

Market Research & Real Time Analytics – Subscription model / Usage

  • Custom reporting
  • Custom targeted surveys / polling
  • Regional trending topics
  • Comprehensive analytics
  • Regional subscriptions
How large is the Market Research industry?
  • US Market is $14 billion
  • Global Market is $40.29 billion
Will there be any revenue from advertising?

No advertising. Ever.

Will the Market Research or Analytics include our personal information?

No, all public data is represented cumulatively and has no individual user information. Similar to Google Analytics.

How is WePower different from Gallup.com?
  • Smartphones or Landlines; WePower uses smartphones to capture public opinion. Gallup.com only surveys people with landline phones.
  • Global Sampling Size; WePower uses algorithms and virtually unlimited sampling sizes to validate voting result. Gallup.com uses scientific validation to justify small sampling sizes (~1000 people).
How is WePower different from SurveyMonkey.com?
  • Targeted Global Demographics; WePower provides all survey sponsors with opt-in survey participants, matching predefined demographics and geographic regions. SurveyMonkey.com offers optional survey participants at a premium.
  • Video Based Feedback; WePower offers the ability to capture video recorded responses from target demographics around the world. SurveyMonkey.com only offers standard text based survey responses.
  • Incentive Drives Demand; WePower survey sponsors compensate our survey participants with discounts, promotional SWAG, or bitcoins. SurveyMonkey.com offers participants the option to donate to predefined charities only.
Why WePower instead of Facebook or Twitter?
  • More Meaningful Success Metrics; WePower measures votes by location. Facebook and Twitter measure “likes” and “shares”, which are meaningless for measuring civic engagement or public consensus.
  • Easier to Organize and Search; WePower content is organized by topic and hashtags. Facebook and Twitter structure content by timeline and hashtags, making difficult to organize or search by topic.
  • No Public Profiles Labels; WePower users have no public labels to distract or divide from common goals (no gender, religion, nationality, political party, etc.) – Just a vote tied with a geographic location. Facebook and Twitter focus on social identities and mixed peers groups which don’t often mix well with political discourse.
How does WePower attract new users?

We have a few strategies and opportunities to attract users;

  • Leverage public frustration with 2016 US Presidential election
  • Linking user metrics with breaking news stories
  • Offer journalist embedded content (similar to Twitter)
  • Facebook Advertising
  • Grassroots networking; Connect with activists and their existing peer networks.
How close are we to launching WePower?
We have more than 1500 hours of development time and are very close to launching our public beta. This funding will help us expedite the launch and grow our team.
What does it mean to have a Network Effect business?

In a Network Effect business model, “every new user makes the product work better for all users.”. Meaning the more people contributing, the more interesting and valuable the network becomes.

What are the benefits of being a business with Network Effect?
  • Biggest Potential Return; Network effect companies produce most of the biggest outliers in the tech world: Facebook, Microsoft, SalesForce, PayPal, eBay, SnapChat, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google, Uber, etc.
  • Rare and Most Valuable; Less than 10% of startups have network effects designed in to their products, yet those companies with a powerful network effect make up more than 2/3 of the combined market caps of tech companies worldwide.
  • Lasting Endurance; Network effect businesses are easy to defend and difficult to attack, which makes them more valuable to investors.
