About us

We are a team of geeks who enjoy sharing knowledge with the wider community.



Why

We are a team of geeks at heart who are fans of science and technology. Things are moving fast these days and we want to make latest advancements more affordable and accessible to the general public. With a lot of stuff going on, lots of people feel left behind and we want to address that. Scientific progress is for anyone and everyone.

How

Most of the latest advances in technology seem to happen in a remote place, far out of reach of most people. This seems too remote and siloed. We want to connect inventors, creators and makers with the general public, by bringing their creations to a widely available platform and cutting costs by making it reusable and shareable. We hope that those early adopters will get inspired and encouraged to invest more in creator’s ideas if they like them.





What

Wonder is a sharing economy platform, similar to Airbnb or Kickstarter. Anyone who owns or makes new interesting products can add them to the platform. We work closely with creators to help them present and publish their products. Our swift and prompt delivery team takes care of all logistics by providing safe travel cases for each product and delivering them by hand.

Invite-only

We’re currently setting things up to test the platform in private beta mode. This is to ensure we have enough supply and can iron out any problems early on in the process. Delivering innovative products is a tricky business and we want to make sure we get it right so not to disappoint our customers. After this early stage, we will be opening the platform to everyone and expanding to other cities, apart from just London.

With over 8 years experience in the European startup community, I have worked with technology startups in media, content, SaaS, e-commerce and crowdfunding.
