Kooleqt is a new concept mixing social networking, a collaborative platform and a huge e-commerce website. It allows users to create, translate, share and interact with Pages. Pages can be about a brand, a product/service, a celebrity, a location or an event from the whole world. Users put Pages they like into themed lists they have created and can share these Pages with their friends. For instance, we can have fun by collecting our entire music library, our dressing room, what we like to or not, monuments we visited or places we would like to go... Opportunities are endless.
A further peculiarity is that each product/service Page that we can find on the Kooleqt website can be sold by anyone, individuals or professionals from anywhere; the platform can be seen as a huge supermarket.
By indicating the relationship that links a Page to another, it allows to give sense and make search and data organization easier. For instance, the relationship linking the French city Paris to 2 different people is not the same : The first one lives here while the second one organize a concert in Paris.
In this way, by browsing a brand Page that we like, we will be allowed to discover each product, place, important person or event that has a direct link with the brand. Each single Page having its own relationship with the brand, brand Places might be its stores, company offices, the location of an organized event...

I want to find a nice bar to hang out with my friends. I start searching for Places. Then, I put a filter indicating that the place must be a bar and located in Paris. Now I just have to find the bar that fits the best my needs according to photos or reviews. Damn it, all of my friends live in different areas of Paris. No problem, I just add an other filter with the keyword "Opera" to find every bar around the Opera neighborhood, in the center of Paris.

I do want to change the world and enhance people daily life. Alone, it seems very complicated. I do think that the Semantic Web and the Web of Things will be the next big thing that will strike the world by erasing more and more barriers between the Internet and the real world. I do want to be a part of this change, what about you ?
My name is Kevin and I'm the founder of this awesome project. I am French and only 22 but I have great plans for the future of the Internet !
I am currently getting a bachelor degree in Fashion and Luxury management in Paris. What do my educational background have in common with this project ? Well, not much but it allowed me to develop a high sensitivity for the product, no matter where the industry it comes from, and believe me or not but to me, details make the difference.
I was thinking about how could be the future of web and what would be useful to people that are moving back and forth between web and reality.... and the Kooleqt idea was born.
To launch this amazing project, I need funds but I am broke and do not have all the needed skills to do it on my own, this is the reason why I am asking you to help me if you want to see this project online one day. If you are broke too, you can spread the word and tell me if you know people around you that would be interested in working on it.
