Knowledge Logistics for the Modern EnterpriseJanuary 16th, 2014Maven
The Knowledge Logistics Engine
Knowledge is everywhere… so why can’t we ever seem to be able to find it when we really need it? Why do we make poorly-informed decisions when we know that someone out there can help us? It’s not about answers, but insights: why aren’t insights available on demand the same way that information and data are? Those were the questions our founders asked themselves back in 2008 when we began building the world’s first marketplace for knowledge.
Since then, we’ve invested hundreds of thousands of man hours and written millions of lines of software to accomplish just one thing: delivering the right expertise at the right time in the right package so you never again have to say “I didn’t know, so I guessed.” It’s hyperfast, industrial-strength knowledge logistics for the modern enterprise.
With the right insights, you can change the world. Without them, all you can do is wish. We've assembled
the world's largest collection of buyers and sellers of professional expertise. From individual professionals
to the world's largest companies, Maven matches those who know with those who need to know so they
can share ideas and make better professional decisions.
Knowledge is valuable.
Sometimes you need quick insights.
