Kmend, a unique new online trading platform, which enables businesses to connect with potential trading partners has been launched today in Dublin and is looking for early adopters to register their interest.
Using specially designed artificial intelligence from UCD spinout RecommenderX, Kmend gives businesses and business organisations easy, time-saving access to constantly growing networks and markets and continually sends businesses valuable new opportunities that match their needs. To ensure value for users, contacts are made on the platform through personal recommendations and introductions from trusted contacts.
Speaking following the launch this morning, John McGrane, Founder and CEO of Kmend said:
“We’re delighted to launch Kmend as part of Dublin Start-up Week 2019.
“Kmend is at the cutting edge of business development through its use of semantically aware AI that recommends business opportunities to users. In so doing, Kmend will help businesses to grow by connecting them to new customers, suppliers, networks and markets; increasing profits which can be invested into supporting jobs in local communities across Ireland and the UK.
“Kmend will also help businesses in Ireland and the UK overcome the challenges of Brexit and global trade disputes by helping them to trade across borders. We are now actively looking for volunteers to register with and use the platform. We want to find businesses interested in expanding their network and securing new business opportunities. Businesses interested in becoming early adopters of the Kmend platform can register their interest by emailing email@example.com.
“Thank you to Lord Mayor of Dublin, Paul McAuliffe for joining us today for our launch. Thank you as well to Techstars, Dublin City Council and all the organisers of Start-up Week Dublin for their support of this event.”
