Tackling The Trillion Dollar Commonwealth Market

By 2020 intra-trade amongst Commonwealth Nations will exceed $1 trillion so we're building the world's first peer-to-peer inventory finance marketplace to connect Commonwealth merchants with a global membership of financial backers.

We can only accept merchants from the Commonwealth


The Problem

Several problems that challenge the growth and prosperity of Commonwealth digital trade.

Financial Resources

Lack of financial resources make it difficult for merchants to access stock at volume for discount prices to build their online store.

Access to Finance

Difficulty getting finance from traditional lenders as a start-up or SME business hoping to grow a successful online store.

Existing Assets

Asset based lending (ABL) is only available to organisations with existing assets such as machinery, accounts receivable and inventory.

Foreign Capital

Few linkages with foreign capital and expertise to include developing countries in the global marketplace via the Internet.

Local Infrastructure

Lack of local infrastructure in emerging economies make it difficult for merchants to get online, enter the market and compete globally.

Marketing & Business Development

Cash tied up in inventory means merchants lack sufficient funds to invest into marketing and business development.

The Commonwealth Opportunity

The Commonwealth is a distributed market made up of 52 Independent Nations

The Commonwealth Factor

The Commonwealth Factor makes it on average 19% cheaper to do business between Commonwealth countries thanks to similar legal structures and cultural similarities.

U$14 Trillion

The Commonwealth includes some of the worlds largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries spanning five regions, with a combined GDP estimated to reach U$14 trillion by 2020.

1 Billion Consumers

The Commonwealth is adding to its middleclass faster than any other grouping. By 2020 the Commonwealth will contain over 1 billion middleclass consumers.

Enabling Digital Trade Across The Commonwealth

A micro financing ecosystem to facilitate the sustainable development of Commonwealth Nations

Why the Commonwealth?

The current global economic climate makes this a good time to take a fresh look at the Commonwealth nations and their emerging markets. $73 billion is the approx. annual investment potential from the Diaspora into Commonwealth countries and we're building the ecosystem to facilitate transparent trade and secure investment.

Merchants sell inventory proposals on the proposal marketplace to members that want to provide financial backing in exchange for a share of the profit as well as their initial capital.
Goods are purchased on behalf of the member and merchant and are stored in our secure smart warehouse until the product is sold on our consumer e-commerce marketplace.
The products from the proposal are placed on the merchants store on our consumer marketplace. When a product is sold we deliver to the customer and pay the member and merchant.

How VNT Tokens Are Used on The Platform

The proposals marketplace is powered by our Ventory (VNT) token. VNT is the currency used to control the flow of funds in and out of the InventoryClub marketplace. The VNT tokens are built on the Stellar Network so it benefits from built-in token abilities, built-in decentralized exchange, enhanced security as well as cheaper and faster transactions. VNT can also be used on the Commwea marketplace as a form of payment from consumers purchasing products from merchant stores.

VNT grants the holder access to the InventoryVault, where the user can download the InventoryVault blockchain, become a node to participate in the round robin consensus protocol and review historic transactions.
