Pittsburgh Business Pitch: UnaTrades
UnaTrades, an online universal marketplace, will be joining the 2018 Pittsburgh Business Show on April 25th and 26th to participate in the Pittsburgh Business Pitch. This program will give six new Pittsburgh start-up business concepts the opportunity to win start-up services that can help get their business moving forward.
UnaTrades Platform to be the First of its Kind in Pittsburgh
Founded by Frank Polito, UnaTrades is an online marketplace like Amazon, Groupon, Angie’s List and many other major online marketplace websites that allow people to save money on products and services but also help them to make money too. What makes UnaTrades different is that when customer’s use their website, customers earn 10% cash back on all their purchases.
Customers and businesses receive their own personal referral link and promo code to use to get users to sign up and make purchases through the UnaTrades Platform. They can earn a 5% lifetime equity/royalty commission on all purchases made or sold by a business or customer that they personally referred to use UnaTrades. The website is 100% free for all users, including business who wish to use the platform to sell their services. UnaTrades receives a 25-30% commission which varies depending on the industry and partnership agreement with that specific business.
Polito said there is no website or company in the world that offers this type of business model to the public for free and UnaTrades will be the first to do it headquartered out of Pittsburgh.
At the Show, each of the six participants will be provided with a 10 x 10 booth space for both days of the Show, where they will give a presentation on their business idea to attendees and the sponsors, who will be providing their services to the winner. Attendees, sponsors will vote for their favorite business idea. Voting will take place starting on Friday, April 20th for Pittsburgh’s favorite business idea using a TEXT to vote system that is sponsored by FYRE, INC a Pittsburgh based business that helps businesses with their mobile marketing needs. Pitch participants can also share their ideas on social media to gain more votes. The business with the most votes wins the sponsor services and support for their business. The winner will also be presented with the Pittsburgh Business Pitch award on the main stage of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
By participating in this two-day event, UnaTrades will have the opportunity to win sponsored services and support to help them launch their brand and business, but will also have the chance to network with industry leaders and learn from over 30 business workshops designed to help businesses improve and succeed. Those interested in attending the Show can receive two-day discounted tickets good for all events on the 2018 agenda.
