Product Hunt – Is like the Nba Draft for Startups and Products


Product Hunt is the daily leader board for best new products. I like to think of site like a mock draft for startups where the players are the startup/products and the owners(VC and Investors) choose to invest in the startups with the most potential. Product Hunt makes it easy to find out what is the next great startup, app, and product on the market.

Product Hunt is used by Journalist to get the next story on the hot new startup/app. Venture Capitalist use the site to find the next potential Uber, Facebook, or billion dollar idea. And the public uses the site to find cool new products and services.

eRated – Single place for all your seller ratings


Erated takes all your ratings from Amazon, Etsy, Ebay, Ecrater, and other sites and create a single page of ratings. Buyers will now know who they can trust across the board of eCommerce sites. This is also helpful for less popular sites I buy/sell/trade at where I have no feedback and want people to trust that I am a good seller.

I can see where this startup can be helpful. I have an Amazon, Etsy, Ecrater and Ebay account and would love to combine my ratings to one to show my positive feedback to customers across the board. Erated plan is to disrupt e-commerce ratings and they just might do that.
