BugScore is a website that allows users to score and compare any person, product or business in the World. Scoring is conducted on a range of attributes (each scored out of 100) that define the value of a person, product or business and is fully crowd-sourced. The website’s slogan is “Score your World” and goal is to make the world more transparent and accountable. Scoring can take place either on BugScore or on any other 3rd party website through the ‘Score’ button that is offered by Bugscore. The site also allows users to see how consumer opinion (in the form of scores) has developed on people, products and businesses, through time. It also shows how people, products and businesses are linked to each other (e.g. friend, colleague, competitor, subsidiary, client, supplier etc.).Registration on the website is free for both people and businesses and the former can choose to hide their score or to not be scored at all. It is fully compliant with Data Privacy Protection Law (DPA 1998) in that non-public people cannot be added to the system and scored without their consent. However, public people, products and businesses can be added and scored without consent.

BugScore Ltd is based in London, UK. It was launched on March 21, 2013 as a beta version. It fills a major gap in the social network space. As one can learn information on Wikipedia, one can search it on Google, one can share it via Facebook/Twitter but there is no place to score/rate everything in one place. Thus BugScore comes in handy which is the only global platform that allows you to score and compare any person, product or business at one place.
It has been founded by Karan Khemani (CEO) & Zissis Skouloudis(COO). Karan Khemani has a background in research and investing across a variety of sectors and is an inventor. Zissis Skouloudis has a background in large databases in the food industry, is an engineer and is an ex-military Private First Class.
They are currently growing at about 150% per month in terms of registered users; the number of scored people, products and businesses on BugScore is 240,000 growing at 300% per month. In a few years from now, their goal is to have scored millions of people across 12,000 occupations, 121 million SMEs and over 100 million products in the World! They have already generated over 130,000 API calls owing to websites installing their Score button; In longer term, their goal is to have Score button to be ubiquitous next to major social-share buttons such as Like and Tweet.
So log into BugScore and start rating the things around you.
