... finding the right business partners is often the greatest hurdle. With ibovo’s global matching capabilities we are significantly easing that challenge.
New York (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
ibovo LLC launched ibovo.com, a full-featured global Internet community dedicated to helping entrepreneurs form new business and social ventures. ibovo provides a unique way of bringing people and ideas together with innovative matching technology to intelligently pair entrepreneurs, investors and skilled professionals. The site also boasts robust collaboration tools, and real-time interaction capabilities to help new ventures start, grow and succeed.
ibovo’s matching technology moves entrepreneurs beyond traditional networking sites by helping entrepreneurs with startup ideas automatically identify and rank prospective partners and investors in real time. Similarly, for skilled professionals or investors looking to join or fund a new venture, ibovo employs matching technology to identify and rank the best matching startups.
John Santiago, co-founder of ibovo, stated “We’re taking the highly successful Internet dating model, and applying that matching methodology to the business and social venture space. As anyone who has tried to start a new venture can tell you, finding the right business partners is often the greatest hurdle. With ibovo’s global matching capabilities we are significantly easing that challenge.”
In addition to its powerful partner matching technology, ibovo aims to drastically expand access to the global marketplace of talent and investment. “In today’s marketplace entrepreneurs are often limited to finding partners among their immediate social and business networks. This can present a formidable challenge in finding the best partner for a new startup. ibovo aims to fill that gap,” says Todd Goldwyn, co-founder of ibovo. With the current global economic downturn there are significant opportunities to help unemployed and disaffected workers bring their ideas to market. According to the Kaufman Foundation, despite the global recession, entrepreneurial activity in 2009 actually rose to its highest level in 14 years.
Beyond the idea and partner matching core, ibovo.com also provides additional features to support building virtual teams, calendar functionality for managing team meetings, advanced partner collaboration capabilities and Web conferencing features for real-time partner interaction. Fully-integrated collaboration capabilities include file sharing, wiki documents, team blogs and RSS feeds. Real-time interaction is supported through online chat, video conferencing, white boarding and screen sharing. “We are focused on enhancing the way people come together, and work together to achieve success,” says John Santiago.
