How it Works
World's first multilingual simultaneous translation platform!
GlobeChat combines the best elements of WhatsApp, Skype, Google Maps and a Language Translator to offer a one-of-a-kind global universal communication platform. We've broken down the communications barriers of language and distance, allowing people to communicate instantly with anyone on the planet.
Instant Translation in 40 Languages
The platform translates languages real-time allowing for seamless interaction - each person receives messages in their native language regardless of the language of the sender.
Chat Privately or Broadcast Publicly
Families can chat across the world. GlobeChat allows celebrities such as actors, athletes, musicians and politicians to transmit videos, photos, text and audio files to fans all over the world in their native language.
Find Common Interests Worldwide
Users can easily filter others globally based on age, gender, orientation, religion, political affiliation, education, career, interests, commonalities and more with the results immediately displayed on a colorful map of the world.
12 months, zero advertising
We are currently generating revenue through our partnership with LiveRamp (https://liveramp.com), an Acxiom company located in San Francisco, which allows us to monetize our data traffic in the United States, United Kingdom and France. With the current funding round we will repurpose and rebrand our existing 1:1 video service to be used as a global public network for celebrities to broadcast live in 40 languages around the world, allowing for fans globally to connect with their favorite celebrities on a more personal and intimate level. Revenue will be generated through language, location and interests based advertising, as well as through a revenue share of purchases generated by celebrities through sales of stickers, personalized videos, ticket sales, merchandise and more.

Let's Connect The World Together!
The world has never been more technologically connected yet socially, politically and culturally divided. The media showcases our differences and separates us into groups and categories propagating an "us" and "them" mentality. We are surrounded with social networks and messaging services, however none have been established to celebrate our commonalities nor have evolved to connect the entire planet. More than seven billion people in a world divided by language and distance with no easy way to instantly communicate with one another. Until now...
My name is Kevin Strom and I am the Founder of GlobeChat. We have created and launched the world's first truly global universal communications platform, instantly connecting people throughout the globe regardless of where they live or the language they speak. Having been immersed in telecommunications with AT&T from 1999 to 2014, I recognized very clearly two emerging trends: the globalization of communications for personal and business purposes; and the imminent growth and expansion of personal messaging applications. I designed an innovative solution to not only solve an existing global problem caused by the language barrier, but additionally created a highly unique patent-pending multi-lingual simultaneous translator to connect groups of people who may all speak different languages. I retired from AT&T in 2014 to dedicate myself entirely to the development and acceleration of GlobeChat.
Some of the fastest growing digital properties in the world are chat applications - messaging apps are the platform of the future. With the rise of messaging apps and bots, the way we use social media throughout the world to share and interact is fundamentally changing. Social media is transitioning from one-to-many communication towards one-to-one communication. Most social activity in 2017 and beyond will no longer occur in public, it will instead continue to transition to private groups and messaging apps. This represents a significant shift in social media from the timelines and news feeds typified by Facebook and Twitter to one-to-one messaging beginning to dominate social media. In 2015 messaging apps surpassed social networks in terms of monthly actives users and the gap continues to widen.
The recent IPO of Snap, Inc. (Snapchat's parent company) is a clear example of this trend - a company that generates no revenue, has never reported a profit, lost $514M in 2016, and yet valued at $24B. A $15,000 investment in Snapchat by a California High School five years ago is now worth more than $40M. GlobeChat is a company in the right place at the right time with massive upside potential. We welcome your support to expand our revolutionary new communications platform throughout the world!
