MeWe

OVERVIEW: MeWe and MeWePRO (the two services of Sgrouples, Inc.) are award-winning social & enterprise collaboration apps redefining their respective market segments. Great communication tech, NO BS. Real privacy, security, and control for users. Separately available on desktop, iOS, and Android. We have many good things happening including new patents issued, significant growth, and much more. On 11/18 I was a featured speaker (cyber-security expert) at EY's annual Strategic Growth Forum with over 2,000 high-growth companies attending. Attached are the MeWe (for consumers) and MeWePRO (for business) PPTs, and our stellar Advisory Board list. Here are the details: 1) MeWe MeWe is the next-gen social network, private chat and group sharing app that gives members total control with its "Privacy Bill of Rights." MeWe members are #Not4Sale. MeWe has received important accolades being named 2016 Start-Up of the Year "Finalist" at SXSW (South by Southwest), awarded for Innovative World Technology. MeWe is currently growing at an average of 1,500 - 2,000 members per day, (1.5M total members), without yet stepping on the marketing gas pedal. With Facebook repeatedly shooting themselves in the foot, we believe our opportunity to catapult with MeWe in 2018 is quite significant. 2) MeWePRO MeWePRO is the next-gen enterprise collaboration software with the best, fully integrated collaboration tools and the best security. Companies are rapidly adopting new communication software far superior to email and chat. Enterprise software market is becoming a $260B marketplace. PRO is perfectly positioned. MeWe Advisor Raj Sisodia (also advising Southwest Airlines, Whole Foods, The Container Store and others) introduces MeWePRO this way: "MeWePRO is a collaboration tool for organizations that by all accounts is far better than existing offerings such as Slack." Slack was valued at $4B when they had $64M in annual revenue less than two years ago. We are now entering the marketing/sales/revenue phase, and are already in conversations with interested big companies like J&J, EY, GameStop, and many others. We are also engaged in discussions with resellers, which is part of our dialogue with EY.
