On Tuesday this week, Geepe.rs, the startup changing the way we view and use geo-location around the world held the finals of its pitching competition at Sydney’s ATP Innovations.
It’s been two months since we invited our readers to take up the Geepers Challenge, and the inaugural competition has almost reached its conclusion. During October, 17 ideas were submitted to Geepers, via the competition website, for new location-based services that could be “powered by Geepers” and introduced to the market in early 2014.
Zookal are great at generating newsworthy stories about themselves, and this one comes just days before the team meets with US investors to open up a series B capital raise. Ahmed Haider who is the cofounder of Zookal is also cofounder of Flirtey along with Matt Sweeney. There is no denying the pair are in fact onto something with the new delivery technology, however I feel we have had a case of premature media ejaculation.
Geo-location startup Geepers this week launched The Geepers Challenge 2013, a competition where creative thinkers across NSW have the opportunity to establish a technology startup of their own. Participants also have the chance to win other prizes in return for designing and presenting the best concepts for web-based or mobile applications that are fundamentally “powered by Geepers”.
Venture Technology firm BlueChilli announced today that two of it’s investments Token One and Geepers have secured over $650,000 in angel funding.
Geepers is perhaps one of the most innovative pieces of tech to come out of the Australian startup scene this year.
