It’s no coincidence that Oeto was born in the middle of the pandemic lockdown. As most of our day-to-day lives moved online, really connecting to people got harder than ever. By now it’s certain that this new way of life will not simply go away any time soon.
Our CEO, Nicolas, has spent years building marketplaces (e.g. Dokkito and Dabadoc). Sure, he loves the technical challenge that building such platforms entail. But most of all, he loves how it offers such a versatile tool to share knowledge in the world.
The internet is overflowing with information, but information is not knowledge. Expert marketplaces bring together the right people at the right time – patients and doctors, marketers or engineers and startup founders, tutors and students – the list can go on and on.
The expert network industry is the next big thing. In 2019, the expert network market size exceeded $1.3B. Some of the well known examples include companies like Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), Third Bridge, Guidepoint, Insight Alpha and Alpha Site.
As expert marketplaces are popping up right and left, we want to inspire and help businesses launch their own marketplaces for various niches and local ecosystems.
