Crowdcatcher catches some venture capital
Congratulations to CrowdCatcher, an Aarhus-based mobile social software company, which has just got its first round of venture capital investment from VC firm Østjysk Innovation A/S. CrowdCatcher allows people with similar interests to stay in touch via SMS's sent via the CrowdCatcher central hub. If you're into, say, salsa dancing and you have a group of friends you might like to meet up with at 8pm on Thursday night at that new salsa joint in town, you can set up a CrowdCatcher salsa group, invite your salsaing friends to join, and when you feel the urge to go dancing, one SMS sent to CrowdCatcher will let your friends be there at the right place and time. It just struck me that CrowdCatcher is a more useful and structured form of flash mobbing (eg xFlashMobs).
