Look up from your smartphone and make eye contact!

Catherine Ryall - 19-oct.-2016 10:36:18
Have you seen that movie where two people cross paths, but then each person goes on their way, only to be reunited later in the film by sheer coincidence at which point they realise there is inescapable, sizzling chemistry between them and consequently embark on their happily ever after? You mean every rom-com ever made? Unfortunately, away from the silver screen it doesn’t seem to work that way: you see someone, feel a connection or a spark and for some reason or another don’t manage to swap details and then never see them again. This creates a strong sense of frustration followed by the strong desire to reconnect with the person directly…without having to go on a dating app. This is where the innovative mobile app iicontact comes in; it enables two individuals to REconnect in a simple way without providing any personal information or posting a personal ad.   Another online dating app? Nope!   •              iicontact is a reconnection tool for 2 people who have already felt a connection in real life Rather than an online marketplace where you have to sell yourself through a photo and a profile to be successfully matched (or not). No more repetitive strain injury from excessive swiping! •              iicontact works without personal information Rather than exposing personal information such as your photo, name and more on online profiles, you just need to tap a non-personal and non-public search into iicontact. •             iicontact is a technological tool Rather than a virtual public space where profiles can be accessed by anyone, spend your time meeting people in the real world and only use the app when you need to.   Available free of charge on the Apple Store and on Google Play in 10 languages .     “The aspiration to reconnect with someone we had good vibes with in real life is actually driven by complex cognitive, emotional and social neurobiological processes Such an aspiration is universal regardless of age or culture”   Dr. Francesco Bianchi-Demicheli Expert of Neurobiology of Human Close Relationship-Geneva University Hospitals   How does it work?   iicontact  has been carefully selected by a panel of expert judges to exhibit on the French Tech Pavillion at the Web Summit .

Karry: The innovative travel app that lets you make friends on your travels… before you’ve even left!

Fran Lambert - 16-oct.-2015 14:49:10
     French start-up Karry’s disruptive app, developed for iOS and Android systems, allows its users to access a community of travellers going to the same place at the same time as them. The Karry app is intuitive as it satisfies people’s natural desire to meet others and build new relationships when they are travelling around the world. Hailed as “disruptive, intuitive and innovative”, Karry is looking to forge new partnerships within the travel and tourism, travel tech, new tech, social media, community and digital sectors. The new Karry app optimises the way people travel, allowing users to meet other travellers and people living in their travel destination, prior to departure. Karry completely changes the way people look at travelling by allowing them to socialise before they have even left. This travel companion app has the following features: Karry Away:  Users who are about to travel can enter their destination/transit/departure time into the Karry app and be instantly matched with hundreds of others living in or travelling to that destination. Karry Event:  Users can find out who will be at the next major global event before it happens. This new feature was launched at Web Summit 2015 earlier this month, and is due to be redeveloped for upcoming events. Karry Home:  Using its in-built Google Maps function, Karry pinpoints the geographical location of users who are not travelling, who are then able to meet travellers and commuters to their hometown. Going to a major event? Karry lets you see who else is going and get in touch! Karry showcased its innovative new app at the leading trade show for digital start-ups, Web Summit 2015 earlier this month. Thanks to the exciting new feature, Karry Event, exclusively for people going to Web Summit, attendees optimised their participation at the trade show via the Karry app and were able to build relationships with other attendees. Karry aims to tailor its app for many more major social events, such as Coachella, Burning Man, New York Marathon, World Travel Market, Maison & Objet, Winter Wonderland, Weather Festival and the Geneva International Motor Show.  Karry is looking to raise between €200k and €300k to increase its presence in Europe and aims to hold promotional evenings in major tourist hubs, such as London, Paris, Moscow, Barcelona, Milan, Berlin, Ibiza and the South of France. The French start-up aspires to build new partnerships by proposing a tailored version of its travel companion app to international firms whose employees are frequently on the move. Karry is also looking to grow its B2B service for plugging the idea of displaying a Karry tab on booking engines and online travel agencies, thus promoting a travel process where travellers look at flights online, check reviews for the hotel they want to stay at, book a room and then potentially use the Karry app to see who else will be travelling to the same destination at that time or soon after. For a video demo of Karry, click here . To download the beta version of the Karry app, visit the  AppStore . About Karry The Karry app was founded in 2015 by Kevin Machefert and Martin Gunther. The official public beta version of the app was released in May 2015 and was made available on Apple’s AppStore. In the midterm, Karry aims to expand its app rapidly across Europe and North America by creating active hubs of users in major cities like Paris, London and New York. Karry’s Research and Development team is always working on new ways to make Karry even more innovative. By constantly improving its technology, Karry aspires to become an unprecedented leader in what is so far a practically non-existent market. It also hopes to disrupt the travel, tourism and hospitality industries by becoming the unrivalled travel companion app for travellers planning a trip.
