Croatia is a hotbed of mobile startups right now. One to argue with me ? ;D
Proud to write about people that stand behind Shout 'Em.
It is an app made by croatian startup Fiveminutes that was showcased at the recent Mobile 2.0 event in Barcelona.
Shout'Em is platform on which you can easily start mobile social networking service ( hosted solution ) .
Now, how not to be proud when it is the first croatian start up coming in the mobile space in a big way.
To me , it sounds uber-cool mobile app ( still, I would like to see it on a handset and not emulator-only ). I have exchanged mails with them and soon to have meeting with them :)
The best of all, they already build Android demo ( see in emulator ).
Viktor Marohnic, one of the founders, wrote a post about his experience with Mobile 2.0 event:
We were one of 10 startups selected from 70 to give five minutes pitch. On top of that we were selected with two other startups to present our business plans in more details in front of the same group of investors. So that make it 3 from 70. Not bad :)
They could be creating mobile tool which will make life easier for all those people starting small social networks all around the world ( to make a bit comparison ; in a desktop and full browser world we have forums, newsgroups, twitts etc. ).
Interesting is here it could become one of the first apps to prove viability of Google's Android platform.
Hope they make through all obstacles and become global app.
