Wahooly.com (Partnered w/ Klout) – Market a startup on social media and get equity in that startup!

1 Feb

Imagine if you had just a fraction of a percent of LinkedIn when it went public? Or, what if you had a piece of any company that got purchased by Google?

Now, what if you could have invested in these companies without actually… well, paying?

Welcome to Wahooly.com, a group of socially-connected individuals that together, help launch startups. As a member of Wahooly, you’ll be presented with up to 200 startups throughout 2012. If you like what they do and if you think that they have the potential to be the next big thing, you become a user.

Your compensation: A piece of the action.

By signing up as a user to one of the startups that Wahooly presents to you, you become a part of that start-ups growth. If you join all 200 startups that Wahooly presents to you, you’ll be a part of 200 startups.

HERE’s an example

Let’s say that a new socially-driven photo sharing service is in need of traction. They would contact Wahooly, we would ask them a series of questions, determine their potential in the marketplace and negotiate a percentage of equity for the services provided.

Once the details have been ironed out, we send the opportunity for you to check out. If you like it, you signup. If you don’t like it, you do nothing and wait for the next one.

For the sake of the example, let’s say you liked it.

Now, this new startup is looking to secure 5,000 users. That means that you, along with 4,999 other users all share equally in the opportunity. Not too shabby for simply signing up.

What if that wasn’t good enough, and you wanted more?

Fair question. You hold the key to how much money you can make. These startups are looking for active users, but more importantly, users that are willing to become advocates for their brand. So, based on three variables, we track how big of a brand advocate you are. This is tracking that you can monitor at any time by accessing your personal dashboard on Wahooly.com.

Your dashboard will provide you with the latest information on all of the startups in your eco-system, along with your ranking amongst the group (Tracking it will be your new addiction.)

So, how do you become a Wahooly member? ?Becoming a Wahooly member is as easy as signing up (with just a hint of mild hazing, but we’ll talk about that later). As a Wahooly member, joining start-ups is entirely up to you.

With a growing list of over 28,000 current members, we’re looking to expand with a solid team of socially-literate individuals. I mean, you don’t need to be Justin Bieber, but we do want to know that you’re capable of spreading a word.

Social capital is the future, Wahooly is making it a reality.
