The Short Story

💰As an investor in PrivacyWall, you are supporting a movement to put consumers back in control of your own data.

PrivacyWall is a search engine that protects your privacy. Over 250,000 consumers count on PrivacyWall everyday to protect their privacy. We are growing 20% every month.

PrivacyWall is developing a suite of privacy and cybersecurity products and technology enabled services. These products include but are not limited to PrivacyWall (https://www.privacywall.org), a privacy search engine that protects your privacy and a data privacy firewall, mobile apps, and AI powered applications.

The search engine market is worth $99 billion in the US, Latin America, and Europe. Today, Google dominates the global search engine market with 92% market share. Google is a monopoly and consumers have few privacy friendly alternatives.

At PrivacyWall, we're here to protect your data and your privacy. We're slaying cookies 🍪 and viruses 🥠 everyday for you. We are 1 of the fastest growing private search engines.

Our mission is to protect consumer privacy. ️#PrivacyWall #Search🔎 is designed to be fast and secure. When using PrivacyWall, your search is faster and uses less data because we block all third-party trackers after enabling tracking protection.

PrivateView 🕵️ enables anyone to preview websites in realtime, without revealing your IP address. Unlike any other search engine, we don't use your search data to follow you around the web with intrusive ads.

PrivacyWall was founded by Jonathan Wu and Christopher Wu, both of whom are serial entrepreneurs.

Jonathan, our CEO, was an early employee of Yodlee, the first fintech company, which went public on Nasdaq and was subsequently acquired by Envestnet. Prior to launching PrivacyWall and Social Game Media, he served as a venture capitalist at Insight Venture Partners, a leading software venture capital firm, where he led investments in Exact Target (Nasdaq IPO and acquired by Salesforce.com) and Website Pros (Nasdaq IPO and acquired by Web.com) with combined exits in excess of $4.5 billion. Jonathan earned a MS Management Science, BS Electrical Engineering, and a BS Economics from Stanford University. Jonathan was a President's Scholar at Stanford University. Jonathan was named an SBA Emerging Leader in 2021 by the US Small Business Administration.

Christopher Wu, our CTO, launched one of the first tech blogs on the internet, Digital Alchemy, which competed with TechCrunch. He successfully grew Digital Alchemy to 500,000 daily page views. Prior to launching PrivacyWall, he co-founded Social Game Media. Christopher studied biomedical engineering at USC.

The search engine market (TAM) is worth $99 billion in North America, Latin America, and EMEA in 2020. The global search engine market is worth $150 billion in 2020. In 2025, the global search market is expected to generate $210 billion in revenue. The search market is dominated by Google whose current market share exceeds 90%. The global search market is expected to grow between 6-10% per year.

Consumer surveys show that 85% of people want an alternative to Big Tech because they believe that Big Tech has too much power. By tapping in this trend toward privacy, we believe PrivacyWall can achieve 5-10% market share within 5 years. This would translate into $7.6-15 billion in revenue. Forward looking projections cannot be guaranteed.

PrivacyWall has been successfully growing market share in this highly strategic market. The search market is highly attractive due to the size and scale of the opportunity. Every 1 percent in global marketshare is estimated to be worth $1.5 billion in revenue. Today, over 250,000 customers count on PrivacyWall to protect their privacy every day. We are growing 20% every month, substantially faster than the overall market.

We commissioned a study in 2020 that surveyed thousands of consumers using the remote user research platform, UsabilityHub, and asked them to pick a search engine from a list containing PrivacyWall, Google, Bing and Yahoo as choices. When customers were offered a choice of an alternative search engine, we found that 10% of users consistently chose PrivacyWall instead of Google. In fact, in these head-to-head studies, PrivacyWall was the most popular alternative search engine behind Google. PrivacyWall outranked established brands such as Bing and Yahoo, which received 3% and 1% of user selections.

The PrivacyWall search engine and firewall is accessible on our website, the Google Play Store, the Google Chrome Store, and other distribution channels such as the Mac App Store. Our search engine does not collect or share the search history of our users.

Our desktop firewall blocks online tracking and profiling by over 3000 data trackers including Facebook. What's unique about our firewall is that unlike an adblocker which only works inside your web browser, our desktop firewall blocks tracking by all software applications at the operating system level. This is a level of protection that is beyond anything else in the marketplace. We also have an Android app that comes with our search engine built-in and lets users block trackers as they browse the web on their mobile devices. Our goal is to provide 360 degree privacy protection for our users regardless of where they are or what device they are using.

Jon has been awarded 12 patents in the area of mobile internet technologies awarded by the US Patent & Trademark Office that have been cited over 127 times by Big Tech companies such as Facebook, Microsoft, Oracle, Qualcomm, and Salesforce.com. These seminal technologies are used by the PrivacyWall search engine to provide real-time search suggestions and by the PrivacyWall desktop firewall, which uses a real-time information feed to update its built-in tracking protection list.

We are engaged in the R&D of search engine technology, artificial intelligence, websites & apps, cloud services and cybersecurity software. PrivacyWall is the only search engine offering PrivateView, which enables users to preview a webpage in real-time without revealing their IP address.

PrivacyWall will be developing software products intended to be sold on a commercial scale and licensing, developing, and acquiring intangible property. Our mission is to protect consumer privacy, and we are planning the development of updates to our apps to support operating system changes and engage in research and development of privacy technology.

Compared to competitors like Google, Microsoft Bing, DuckDuckGo and Ecosia, PrivacyWall has durable advantages with its unique PrivateView feature, cross-platform support across desktop and mobile devices, access to emerging online threats through the privacy firewall, and its social mission to protect consumers’ privacy.

#Be a part of something #different!

🙏In a year unlike anything, we know what it's like to lose everything.

PrivacyWall was born different - in one of America's lowest income zip codes, right after Hurricane Maria had devastated our community in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Hurricane killed more than 3000 people 🌩 but it didn't kill our dream for a more inclusive future.


✌️Why It Matters and Why Your Investment Counts

Google is a monopoly and Google does not want you to have your privacy. Google is a product of hypercapitalism that existed in the era that was pre-COVID19. The unfettered power of Big Tech poses a significant threat to democracy, when non-conforming points of view and dissenting voices can be de-platformed without any debate.

💖We believe opportunities in tech shouldn't just belong to Big Tech, or those who are lucky enough to be born or raised in Silicon Valley. Only through your support can we make this dream a reality.

💚At PrivacyWall , we encourage our employees to volunteer 20% of their time working on initiatives they think will most benefit the world.

💙That's why supporting our FLI communities is part of our DNA. With your investment, you're helping us make an impact and you're investing in a more inclusive future. We won't back down from challenges big or small. When COVID19 struck, we decided to disrupt COVID19 when our community came calling. Working with VA Health Systems, we dropped everything we were doing to re-position ourselves to source life-saving PPE to support veterans around America. During the height of the pandemic, we identified more N95 masks for delivery through our sourcing than even the state of Minnesota.

1️⃣We believe impossible is nothing.

2️⃣We believe in spontaneous acts of kindness

3️⃣We hope you'll join us for the journey!

Help us #reimagine capitalism. Own the future.
