About Recco

The goal of Recco is to provide a channel for authentic, trusted relationships between brands and their customers. The goal is for Recco to be the action verb and metric for success in B2C marketing and networking.

The team’s goal was to create block-chain verified reviews that would be as trustworthy as a friend’s recommendation. Recco can then take a pool of these verified, anonymous reviews to gain more business partners who could advertise directly to primed potential buyers. The Recco team called this an “inverted marketing funnel.”
