My 60 second pitch for the 2nd Silicon Cape networking event.
Tonight I’d like to tell you about a Cape Town startup called TrustFabric.
1) What is it?
TrustFabric is a new way of thinking about personal information management.
I like to say TrustFabric builds flying cars. We give them away for free and we make money by being air traffic control.
The flying cars are Agents.. digital butlers. Everybody needs one. Agents help you manage your personal information and are connected by trusted relationships.
TrustFabric is a fully distributed network of autonomous agents.
To make sense of this network, which is basically anarchy, you need air traffic control. This is how we make money: Micro trust billing.
2) What makes us different?
We want to change the world. Seriously.
We’re not an attention business. We don’t sell ads. We focus on reputation and trust.
TrustFabric has as open source business model. We give away our software. It’s a new, open ecosystem for information management.
3) What is the potential here?
Manage your relationships in one place. Engage the world on your terms.
Realistic, scalable relationships between business and consumers.
The end of spam – No more un-authenticated communication.
A new trusted, social fabric.
