Jumparound is a young startup founded in March 2015 by three Italian students enrolled at the University of Vienna. Their app is a social network that focuses on facilitating real life interaction between members, mostly young people and students, and helps users cultivate their interests and hobbies.
In their short time, they have already received investment from AWS and build version 1 of the app to launch later this year. One of their main focuses is “geolocalization”; making sure that users always know what’s happening around them and getting involved with communities that interest them. “When we looked at the social media market, there was no provider that really focused on young people, real life interactions, and a variety of choice and content”.
Using Sinch, Jumparound lets users message each other via their in-app chat system. “We decided to pick Sinch because it had the best service with the best pricing” co-founder Samuele Premi told me.
Jumparound are planning to launch the app at the beginning of March 2016, as well as developing further collaborations and expanding their beta tester community. “From there, the focus is user growth” said Samuele.
“Sinch is a tool with a huge potential for us”
