Trove – A place to create and share ideas and knowledge.

Startup Name: Trove

Tagline: A place to create and share ideas and knowledge.

Elevator Pitch: While there exists excellent content on the web for any topic, it is difficult to find amidst a sea of clickbait, SEO grifting, and transitory content. And even when we find and share that “needle in a haystack,” it is eventually lost in the shuffle, meeting the same fate as every other email or text message in our inboxes.

We knew there must be a better way to find, organize, and share high-signal content—a kind of “information scaffolding”, if you will, to permanently store and annotate the things we found compelling, and share them with other hyper-consumers like ourselves. This is why we built Trove.

Target Market: Consumer of Internet Content
