Revy, a Baton Rouge startup based out of the Louisiana Technology Park, takes a virtual crowdsourcing approach to locating unique and hard-to-find items.
Users can post items for sale or items they want at the price they want to pay, such as a family heirloom or a rare baseball card. Revy’s “Connector” tool enables the connectors to get paid if they find a buyer for a seller that has an item in the want ad.
“If you think about it, we are all connected now more than ever; Revy just taps into this notion and gets you paid for all those connections,” said Jesse Hoggard, Director of Communications at the Louisiana Technology Park. “Overall, this crowdsourced approach gives buyers more leverage to find almost any item they want.”
Revy Founder Travis Drago said the online service is, “ideal for consumers who want to find that lost family heirloom, rare piece of jewelry or the hard to find collectible to finish off their collection. However, utilizing Revy to find just about anything is certainly possible”, said Drago.
Drago came up with the idea for the platform when his dad mentioned he wished he could purchase the exact car he had when he was younger, a 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo. Fast forward to the launch of Revy, and the car was actually used on the site as the first want.
Revy’s Mission is to offer a fun, user friendly and secure website for buyers to find items they want at prices they want to pay. For more information, visit revyit.com.
