STARTUPS 101: Toven – A Search Engine To Find New & Old Goods


Startup name: Toven – Search Better, Search Borderless.

Problem being solved:

The current sites, and systems for searching for classified ads, second-hand sales & auctions isn’t user friendly. The economy for second-hand sales and direct consumer to consumer trading is rapidly expanding across Europe. Searching for the item you want is time-consuming.

• Every country has hundreds of general and niche classified and direct selling sites.

• There are a multitude of auction house sites and digital platforms per country.

• Many sites restrict searches to specific countries or cities.

• Sites differ in layout, structure and categories. There is no unified experience for the user.
