In the increasingly virtual world of today, people have lost the habit of meeting up with friends for a coffee to talk over the day’s events. Instead, friends reconnect with our smartphones. Ever wondered why, with over 500 Facebook friends, some people still feel lonely, spending most of their waking life in front of a screen? You are not alone. Here is where Uniiverse, the world’s first platform for collaborative living, comes in.
Uniiverse is not a social network. Doing away with status updates and virtual friends, we take an offline approach with users. The reason? We don’t want to see you glued to the screen, your face an eerie pale-blue against the dim light it emanates. Instead, we want you to be outside, feeling the sun on your face, developing bonds with real people, and enjoying a collaborative lifestyle. If you want to gain further insight into our vision, watch the manifesto video.
Uniiverse is the only platform that allows anyone to share any kind of real-life activity or service, and, to make this even better, it’s absolutely free to post. Users can specify what they are offering, the price they want to charge (could be free), and when the event or service is happening. People can then instantly discover, book and pay for the listing through the website. This way, Uniiverse empowers anyone to become an entrepreneur, meet like-minded people, share their passions and, most importantly, live a smarter, happier, more sustainable lifestyle.
With Uniiverse, opportunities are endless:
- Organize a jogging group to join you on your morning run, a tapas party or a yoga session
- Share your knowledge by offering a service, such as a photography workshop, a language lesson or a sushi-making class
- Use your free time efficiently, and make extra money by posting your availability for errand running, babysitting, or pet walking
- Share the objects you rarely use, such as a guitar, a drill or a bike
- Rent out your space when you are away, or offer an unused parking spot
- Organize a ride-share to save money on gas, while helping the environment
Uniiverse promotes trust and creates a safe environment for sharing experiences offline. The platform enables people to get a full understanding of each other’s trustworthiness by showing social proximity (mutual friends), ratings, reviews and participation across categories.
Through this platform, Uniiverse is resurrecting old marketplace behaviors, such as sharing, on a scale that has never before been possible. We are building the sharing economy, where access and experiences are more important than ownership. This movement will help the environment, alleviate global financial issues, build stronger communities and make you smile, even on a Monday.
