Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Through a disruptive approach of peer-to-peer validation of people’s professional reputation and branding, Indorse is offering what other platforms are unable to provide to users – ownership of data and true social collateral which attests to the validity of their accomplishments.
Why will the company/product do well?
Unlike traditional social media platforms such as LinkedIn, the Ethereum-based Indorse network aims to empower users with their data and reputation management, allowing anyone to profit from sharing their skills, activities and accomplishments on the platform.
Where are you based?
We are based in Singapore
When was the company launched?
Endorse launched early 2017.

What have been your biggest wins to date?
Sold out our token pre-sale in just a couple of days. We’ve had overwhelming early interest from major investors and participants in the blockchain space.
What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?
Really anyone who uses Linkedin currently should be interested in taking back their data and reputation via Indorse.
What tips would you give to others looking to build their business?
Make it all about the community. Token-funded businesses live and die by the strength of the community.

Tell us about your team?
The Singapore executive team is lead by David Moskowitz, CEO, who has a background in blockchain and cryptocurrency consulting. CTO Gaurang Torvekar has a background in Ethereum and blockchain consulting and made headlines when he created a prenuptial agreement on the Ethereum blockchain. (http://prenupwithlove.com/) COO Dipesh Sukhani is an experienced management consultant at PwC and the CMO Avadhoot Kulkarni has a background in software engineering and digital marketing.
What are your long term plans for your product/company?
Indorse will allow users to profit from sharing their skills and activities on the platform via reward tokens. We envision a serverless, decentralized future, where the users will build their profiles and profit from their reputation. This future will need a decentralized platform where others can judge the quality of a person’s profile not just by where they have gone to school, but what they have actually done in their professional and personal lives.
Anything else you’d like to add/we should have asked?
We would encourage anyone who is interested in being invited to our early alpha community as a tester to join our Slack channel and subscribe to our blog for updates once our token sale has concluded.
How do people get in touch with you?
We have someone on our Slack channel available 24 hours a day – so definitely get in touch with us there. https://joinindorse.herokuapp.com/
