What is your elevator pitch?
The number of Internet users is nearing 4 billion and generated unstructured information doubles every 18 months. To get our attention companies spent for advertising in 2018 alone over $550 billion.
Imagine a web where machines understand and interpret online content autonomously. Not just listing relevant hits, but finding answers and building a curated online experience tailored just for you. To make the leap to this new user-centric era, we need a platform capable of upgrading today’s Web 2.0 to to the machine-readable curated Web 3.0 that enables accurate auto delivery of content, products and services to relevant consumers without ads. WRIO Internet OS developed by webRunes is where semantics, automatic data processing, and blockchain-powered apps are replacing many of the visionary technologies of Web 2.0.
How are you different?
We have a functional MVP. User Interest and input has been taken into consideration in product development from the beginning. Above average community built around product. Long term vision helps unite team and keep goals in mind constantly when furthering product development and moving forward.
Why will you do well?
There are a number of factors that separates the WRIO Internet OS project from others in our sphere. Among them is the capable Team. Our MVP (demo) has been developed and functional for nearly a year and this has allowed the project to gain substantial traction contrary to competitors. Our active and large community has also been incredibly valuable in providing early consumer input regarding product development as well as supporting the project up to this point and moving forward.
Where are you based?
We’re a fully remote team. Our team members are scattered around the globe. We’re going to be HQ in Prague.
When was the company launched?
The company was officially incorporated on Seychelles in August of 2018, however, preliminary development and strategy has been ongoing since 2016.

Who are you trying to attract to your product?
One of the amazing things about the Web 3.0 is it’s accessibility to users across the board. The long term vision for WRIO Internet OS is to establish ourselves as the industry standard early on and place our project at the center of the migration from Web 2.0 to 3.0. Assuming we are successful in this strategy, our target customer will essentially be anyone who is a current user of the internet as well as attracting new users as the internet of things continues to grow more accessible as an information and service tool to users around the globe.
What tips would you give to others looking to build their business?
The largest factor that separates anyone successful in starting their business from the unsuccessful is execution. This encompassas both a willingness to execute to begin with as well as the capability to execute to maximum benefit. Some of the factors that play into a successful execution are a strong team, long term strategy, and unifying mission, all of which have been holding the WRIO Internet OS project together from the beginning.
Tell us about your team?
We have a well-balanced team of 30+ contributors covering all aspects of the project from development to promotion. Our advisors include ex-national buyer Circuit City Stores, a Top30 ICObench Expert and the author of the well-known Ethereum wallet. Our developers have experience at Nike, Adidas, Apple, Walmart and more.
What are your plans for the future?
Perfected MVP. Thin Client Terminal Devices. Distributed, Secure Web 3.0
What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?
We are rushing into the era of Internet of Things and Big Data where automated processing of data will be imperative for any new product or service. Following this new era will be the emergence of user-centric services and predictive search systems, that will soon replace traditional Web 2.0 services and become the new web standard.
WRIO Internet OS will become the platform that serves as the launching pad for Web 3.0 products and applications, and will create a new market of browser-driven smart predictive systems — very inexpensive thin-client terminal devices with WRIO Internet OS onboard.
Concept of a thin-client terminal device.
Individual Assistant concept based on Raspberry Pi and WRIO Internet OS.
