TrustRadius – A great new Technology Crowdsourcing concept from Vinay Bhagat


Earlier in the year, I wrote an article about Technology Crowdsourcing.  There is a new player in this space named TrustRadius.

The talented Vinay Bhagat and his team have created a unique platform which compiles software reviews sourced from product experts.  Key differentiators in this new platform include:

  1. TrustRadius is really focused on trying to source in-depth insights from primary product users/ experts
  2. The reviews of TrustRadius are structured, and soon will be able to be added to, and amended over time.  Structure allows for curation into things like comparisons.

They were launched in May and were funded by the Mayfield Fund in July and are rapidly starting to scale.  So far, they have 23k monthly visitors and are growing at 30% per month.

  1. Really interesting Robert, thanks​!​

    I think that you would be really interested in some recent research that I have come across about crowds and citizen science.​ ​In particular I feel you may find these two emerging pieces of research very relevant:

    – The Theory of Crowd Capital

    – The Contours of Crowd Capability

    Powerful stuff!
