Our CEOs story how he started GeoSpark
I got started on this journey in 2017 when I was visiting Paris for
the first time. Although I had a great time, I couldn't help feeling
a little homesick, so I decided to go 30 miles outside the city to
watch an Indian movie. The movie was pretty good but the problem was
by the time it finished there were no trains back to city. And, I
ended up sleeping on the station floor in the middle of winter. When
I woke up the next morning stiff, cold and in pain. I realized
something had to be done. So why didn't I just call an Uber, or call
some of the friends I was staying with? Well, the thing is my phone
had died. We've all been there. But the worst part is my phone had
died so quickly because I'd been testing out a location-based
messaging app that I was working on at that time. My own app "Holo",
A location triggered messaging app. Why? Location is in a
relationship with the battery and it loves to drain the life out of
the battery. So I figured how many people went through this by
running out of battery life and missing important life events,
meetings, job interviews and even dates. (Hope not their own
wedding.) I decided to put a team together and solve this problem.
And then here we are today.
