Solavei Mission Statement
Solavei’s mission is to make commerce less expensive and even profitable for our members.
Solavei Talking Points
The founder of Solavei, Ryan Wuerch, along with leading executives from some of the most respected U.S. companies (such as AT&T, T-Mobile, JP Morgan, Microsoft, and others), are launching what many are calling a company that will change an industry. Solavei will be the first Social Marketing and Commerce Company, doing what hasn’t been done before and launching nationally late summer 2012. Momentum is building as key executives, advisory board members, investors and Fortune 50 companies align with Ryan’s vision.
Their prevailing sentiment: “I can’t believe this hasn’t been done, and I want to be involved.” The company has already received financial commitment of over $20MM in funding at a valuation of over $120MM, which is greater than the second round of funding for both Google and Facebook.
Based in Bellevue, Wash., Solavei has determined a path to amazing growth by doing what hasn’t been done before. Solavei will provide unlimited 4G Nationwide Data, Text, and Talk for $49 or free through social marketing. Solavei will deliver a mobile services offering that will easily compete with all the major carriers by providing cutting-edge mobile phones and a world-class service experience with an unmatched management team and partners.
As the newest and most innovative company to enter the market, Solavei is leveraging a revolutionary distribution model for its services called Social Marketing. Solavei will leverage the most trusted form of advertising in history, “The Referral,” and support it with best-in-class product and service experiences. By shifting the billions of dollars currently spent on mass advertising to Solavei’s members, social marketing has the opportunity to be the “wave of the future”.
The world interacts today through social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and others. The social sphere is now a major place where our relationships are nurtured and maintained. Solavei will provide direct access for its members to leverage their online networks through Solavei’s proprietary social community and outreach experience, making it easy to spread the word to friends and family.
By participating in Solavei’s unique social marketing program, Solavei members will have the opportunity to earn residual income for enrolling new members, to the point of earning more than their monthly phone service fees or even a substantial monthly income.
