#DailyDealflow newsletter delivers one seed-stage startup a day, every work day

TradeHelp is a global B2B trading ecosystem, based on a hybrid blockchain, for all types of supply chain physical goods, products, commodities and services.
Founded in 2014, TradeHelp™ is the brainchild of trade industry veteran Gary Kesser, in association with Alex Zrely. With a combined 50 years of experience spanning various roles from merchant marine ships to global trade – we experienced first-hand market inefficiencies and disconnect in the global trade. 
Witnessing dominance of oligopolies, unfairness with open market opportunities for small and mid-size companies, struggles with bureaucracy in compliance and standardization we were driven to create a solution disrupting existing trade format. Experiencing opaqueness in global trade, we came up with a plan to create a universal digital eco system transforming conventional human interactions in global trade into a technologically advanced electronic format. This was the birth of TradeHelp™ - to digitize multinational trade processes by bringing transparency, security and visibility to a market in need of disruption.
TradeHelp™ not only disrupts global trade operations with proprietary algorithms and asset-backed crypto, but also adds real-time post-trade execution flow, ease of use and compliant contractual settlement. TradeHelp™ - transparent, compliant, and easy to use. Built for Traders by Traders.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

System which transforms an archaic all human analogue activities and operations in global trade into a digital format. Never done before.
