Idea

Materia offers thousands of brands and products that you can search by brand, category or any attribute. Users can save their favorite products for future use, create moodboards with their product selections to see, combine
and test with any other product and finally get information about the retailer
and reach out directly to the sales rep by call, email or even set destination within the app to the nearest retail store.

Current Status

Our mobile app is currently in testing stage. We are sending invites to testers via TestFlight from Apple. We are planning to launch the products in July 2021

Market

Turkey is the 20th largest market for eCommerce with a revenue of US$11 billion in 2020, placing it ahead of Switzerland and behind Poland.

With an increase of 43%, the Turkish eCommerce market contributed to the worldwide growth rate of 26% in 2020. Revenues for eCommerce continue to increase. New markets are emerging, and existing markets also have the potential for further development. Global growth will continue over the next few years.

Problem or Opportunity

Materia is a mobile platform that bridges consumers and retailers. Materia helps consumers browse, find and test quality products and conveniently reach to the retailers within the app.

The problem with today's consumers current product search methods is that they are forced to deal with too much clutter and products push via search engines and e-commerce platforms. There is no curation.

If you type "yellow ceramic tile for outdoor use" at google, the results will be almost useless. However, on the other hand, Materia App will offer you many real product selections and allow users to call, email or reach to the nearest retail store within the app.

Also, with conventional search engines, its not possible to make combinations and see different products from different websites, side by side. For example, I
would like to see a specific sofa next to a certain carpet and a wallpaper. I want to combine and select products, based on how the colors and texture go together.

Solution (product or service)

Materia offers hundreds of brands and thousands of products at the tip of your fingertip.

Competitors

Pinterest.com would be a similar product.

Advantages or differentiators

Our main advantage is that Materia offers a moodboard that users can combine different selections and see products side by side. For example, users can see a specific sofa on a specific carpet selection and test if their color match etc.

Finance
