Product/Service Summary

Vidzy a viral mobile app to help people strengthen their social ties through casual gifting has grown from 2 to 100 paid Gifters in just 1 month through pure word of mouth ($0 marketing) and inherent viral nature of app. We are looking to raise $500k to $1 Mn, through angel investors who are looking to invest in 'Silicon Valley' first products.

How are we different?

All gifting apps fail at building habit. We have a thought through strategy to do same- Keep the gifting items casual but meaningful (coffee, beer & wine), Reduce choices for the Gifter, Make the experience magical by not asking address or preferences from gifter, Deliver the gift in a mind blowing way to delight the Giftee instantly. Repeat this!
