About

 

Aytopia

Aytopia Inc. is an incubator of start-up ventures in the realms of media, commerce and education. The primary benefit of an incubator is realized through lowering the start-up cost of operations, in shared offices, management, technology and other expenses and in the choice of ventures that have synergistic relationships working together or separately.

We Are Technology Agnostic

The world of technology is our playing field, however the  platforms on which the businesses operate are neither the unique strength of the business nor a limiting factor. Technology changes at a rapid pace in this age and any business that is locked into a particular platform is inherently limited. Our businesses utilize various types of advanced networked technologies, but can move easily to new platforms as advances are made.

Experienced Team

We are a group of conscious entrepreneurs with vast experience in media, marketing, technology , community and collaboration. Together, our team represents decades of experience, but more importantly we also share a positive vision for the future of media, education, and entertainment.

Global Perspective

We are a Delaware incorporated company, a subsidiary of Aytopia Holdings, Ltd. We are a global firm with offices in the US, Europe, and the Middle-East. Also, the structure of the company is flexible enough to allow the spin-off of its ventures into domestic US, European, or Middle-Eastern companies, if preferable.

Aytopia Brands

Aytopia is developing a “Social Commerce” platform that empowers and enriches all parts of the ecosystem from vendor to independent reseller to consumer, in clearly differentiated vertical markets. Despite rapid growth and market penetration of digital commerce, two market segments have yet to effectively migrate their business models online: (1) “mom-and-pop” retail stores, and (2) retail franchises. Herein lies a significant opportunity. Aytopia stands ready to do for the retailing industry what Uber and Airbnb have done for transportation and hospitality.
