Entrepreneur Launches First-Ever Black-Owned Social Networking App in Metaverse


Meet Matthew Newmannfounder and CEO of TruSo, an audio-visual social networking application for the black community around the world. It offers a social environment that is as close to face-to-face as possible – which psychologists say offers “a great way to feel more emotionally connected to others and create meaningful interactions”.

In its first month, the app quickly raised over $30,000 from individual shareholders who wanted to participate.

Matthew comments: “At its core, TruSo is the barbershop, beauty salon and brainchild of the black community. Over the past few years, we have seen racism and discrimination seep into social media in ways that attempt to silence black voices. In contrast, TruSo amplifies black voices.

Keeping pace with technology, Matthew announced in early 2022 that TruSo would launch in both 2D and 3D in the Metaverse.

“What TruSo is building is a perfect fit for the metaverse – and one thing we don’t want is the black community to be left behind as the world enters this new frontier,” he says.

While most people are still trying to understand the Metaverse, a simple way to describe it is as “one or more shared 3D virtual worlds that are interactive, immersive and collaborative” – ​​and interactive and collaborative is what TruSo is. all about – not only a social media outlet, but also a resource for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Along with providing an engaging community experience, the app also provides monetization opportunities for the black community.

Family, friends and fans also join TruSo as early stage investors – becoming shareholders with as little as $100. Investment opportunities are open for a limited time at StartEngine.com/TruSo.

“Matthew Newman is an expert at creating ‘experiences’ and now he’s extending that to the metaverse – creating a powerful experience that black people have never seen,” says the TruSo shareholder, spokesperson and actor. Kareem Grimeswho performs “Preach” on the hit CW show “All American.”

NFL Hall of Fame, Terrell Owens agrees that TruSo is leading the way into new territories.

“What TruSo builds is revolutionary – that’s why I chose to come on board.”

Demonstrating the power of community and how supportive the black community can be, many early TruSo investors signed up after hearing about the app during Newman’s “Sway in the Morning” interview.

“People know when something is real, and people resonate with TruSo because it’s needed and there’s nothing else like it. I believe we’re on the verge of something big. Others feel it too,” an iconic media personality shares Sway Calloway.

Two-time American Olympian, Miki Barbieradmits she didn’t want to “sleep” on the opportunity because she thinks TruSo is the next big thing.

“At the time, the laws prohibited ordinary people from being able to enter the ground floor as investors in startups like Microsoft or Facebook. president obama changed those laws and now a person at any income level can invest. It would be a shame if we slept on this opportunity,” says Barber.
