Startup Spotlight #42 Bartme

May 23, 2020

Trade refers to replace, buy, and sell products with other economic values. The first form of trade in human history is barter. The barter is simply the exchange of products or services that have equal value. Today, it is very difficult to use the barter method. The most important reason for this is that it is very difficult to determine the value of objects of economic value in terms of another object. Bartme makes exchange easier by offering an innovative solution for the valuation of items.

When and why did you found your startup?

One night in the office, I read an article about a barter platform that enables SME and corporates to barter idle products and services. The financial model provided for businesses took my appreciation. I asked myself: 'Why don't I have an app in my pocket helping me barter with my peers?' That night I started researching the history of bartering, ended up a brand new model for c2c barter.
