Maply is a crowdsourced map for discovering breaking news and local events.
4 head-turning business ideas coming out of Austin - Austin Business JournalFour entrepreneurs visited me for a half-hour each during my first Capital Factory Office Hours on June 16. The startups they founded comprised: * A company that supplies robots to clean pool debris; * A map app that shows what's happening in an area - live artist shows, parties, food trucks, etc.; * A stock-trading game app that teaches players how to invest in securities; * And a venture that finds the frequent-flyer point program most aligned with the customer's travel plans.
Maply's leap: Student entrepreneurs raise funding, pursue startup full-timeThe entrepreneurs who founded Maply as undergrads at the University of Missouri will be plunging into the startup full-time in June. The creators of the location-based app for discovering and sharing events have raised $300,000 of seed funding and are relocating to Austin, Texas, in hopes of accelerating their company's growth.
