As stated in the article, George Mason University is not only my alma mater but also a stakeholder of WorthPoint. Through its initial investment, in addition to the recent investments by our valued supporters in our recent crowdfunding campaign, WorthPoint has been able to improve the vital tools we provide for those in the antiques and collectibles industry.
One of our company’s recent additions is visual search recognition on our mobile app, allowing users to take a photo of an item and instantly search through our 760+ million Price Guide entries to learn what it and similar items have sold for. We’re also preparing the launch of WorthPoint Indices, the industry’s first index-linked investment product that statistically measures price trends.
Stay tuned—sign up for weekly updates on our developments to these products and more.
