Three years after launching the company, we’re catching press in New York, Chicago and last week: San Francisco & Palo Alto aka Bay Area just to name a few. That’s obviously great news and a relentless team effort. A few days after the publication below we got a call from local Antwerp press too. It seems you need to score overseas to disrupt the local media overhere.
So it’s with pride I’m sharing this press article in the San Francisco Examiner (web) and paper. As a personal note to all entrepreneurs out there who got virtually kicked, bashed and looked-down by the big boys:
Saying NAY to naysayers, does pay off.
(And thanks a lot Filip De Clerck & Elisabeth van Nueten for the San Francisco snapshots!)
More than a year ago we decided to make an app that had to scratch our own itch. Our itch was the missing information on the red rental bikes (Velookes) in Antwerp. As heavy-users of the Velo Antwerpen service, we thought it made sense to make an app for internal usage. That internal usage soon (a few days later) appeared to be interesting for just more than the 3 of us. Finally (= a week later), we decided to launch the free app in the app stores and make both an iPhone/iPad and Android version of it.
The successful Unibet Sports TV Guide has now been rolled-out out to Norway, Denmark, Greece and Italy too. The app has made the sports charts in >20 countries, so we made local editions of the most interesting markets. And there is more to come by the end of August.
