CrowdNetworking: The New Frontier of Business 'Match-Making'
Crowdentify Mobile App Utlilizes Location Aware Mobile Technology, Collaborative Filtering and Beacons to 'Identify' High Value Target Market Prospects in the 'Crowd'. Crowdnetworking takes the pain and fear out of traditional business networking.
"CrowdNetworker, an Atlanta-based technology firm, will launch an ambient location aware crowdnetworking app that will match businesses with the prospects, products and services they need – before they know they need them." - Tom McMurrain, Founder of CrowdNetworker and Virtuoso of CrowdNetworking
The ambient and collaborative filtering technology to create what McMurrain is calling “Crowdentify”
Taking the pain and fear out the business and networking discovery process is the purpose of Crowdentify.”
Match.com has made finding the perfect partner easier and CrowdNetworker will make finding new business, strategic partnerships, employees and funding easier...
The inspiration for the term 'crowdnetworking' and the app came from an event McMurrain was hosting, an internet marketing conference live from his home on a weekend with 50 people in attendance and 900 more tuned-in to a Google Hangout video stream. While observing the event, the words “crowd” and “networking”
“Having the opportunity to define an industry term like Jimmy Wales did in the ‘Wiki’ space and Sergey Brin and Larry Page did with Google is exciting, especially since it’s tied to business networking and discovery opportunities,”
That same weekend, McMurrain, ‘Googled’ his new term and found no search results relevant to “crowd networking” or “crowdnetworking.”
Here’s how the app works: It’s like having an aircraft radar-like system on your smart phone that can locate people within the same networking event or geographic area who are most likely to do business with you. It’s a mobile app that sorts the people at the event and alerts you and others to potential opportunities for business discovery.
An example of the power of the crowdnetworking app is John who’s in pharmaceutical sales, and David, a medical doctor, with a private practice; both are attending the same conference. Both play golf, have ‘checked-in’
CrowdNetworking is a business discovery methodology that leverages the power of SOLOMO (Social, Local, Mobile) and selective filtering to connect people based on personal and professional algorithms to create business relationships. Envision professional profiles like those of Linkedin; a search algorithm like that of Match.com; and location aware technology similar to that used in Uber.

James Surowiecki, author of the The Wisdom of Crowds, brought the awareness of “Crowd Theory” into the mainstream media with his bestselling book. Since then, entrepreneurs have exploited every angle of the “crowd” space and built billion dollar companies that have disrupted major industries. When Jimmy Wales “mashed” crowdsourcing with a “wiki” software, he created Wikipedia, the largest online encyclopedia in the world. Crowdfunding companies like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are combining the “power of the crowd” with venture capital and disrupting the venture capital industry by revolutionizing the way entrepreneurs fund startups.
