Richard Mandeberg of GroundCntrl announced that they raised $1 million in funding. GroundCntrl is a combination of a software as a service and a mobile app that organizes tasks and employee-incentive programs. It’s specifically aimed at companies with a “mobile workforce,” businesses that have workers spread out and not necessarily in an office. An example could be a canvassing business, such as the environmental folks you see on the sidewalks asking for a moment of your time.
We’re excited to wish Fryderyk Ovcaric a big congratulations this week on the launch of Instapray! Instapray is a free mobile app that’s available for both iPhone and Android. It connects you with people around the world for the purposes of sharing prayer requests, and praying for others too. The ultimate goal of Instapray is to facilitate loving and supportive personal connections within our global community.
Mendel Chuang of Smoopa announced a new update to their app, which is available through the App Store through iOS. Smoopa is an app that was designed specifically for those who love to shop ’til they drop. It’s designed to help you find the best deals, regardless of what you’re shopping for. It’s also a social application, which will allow you to connect with other shoppers who are on missions of their own. Whether you’re shopping online, or you’re hitting the mall, Smoopa will help you get bargain after bargain.
Congratulations to Stephen Dash of JoinStampede for being featured in International Times this week! JoinStampede just had their launch about two weeks ago, and they’re focusing their efforts on negotiating better student loan terms on behalf of borrowers everywhere. Rather than appealing to Congress, JoinStampede focuses on the lenders, and they’re working hard to see a big change for college student debt.
