Pinterest is on the brink of a new era: finding the monetization model that works for both users and small/medium businesses. Businesses need to be able to target the right users for the products that users want the most. The future of social networks is drawing users back in through push notifications: SnapChat, WeChat, and WhatsApp have millions of users because their push notifications are highly targeted toward the user.
Pushpins is our solution to bring the best of mobile to the Pinterest world. Pinterest has the best interest graph of any social network on the internet. By combining this interest graph with time-dependent events such as coupons, events, and even kickstarter campaigns, Pinterest can finally monetize through insanely highly targeted affiliate links.
We recognize the huge growth potential in Pinterest and would like to receive any prize money in company equity. :)
