First MWC pitch from a startup founder

We’ve had our first MWC pitch from a startup founder and I reckon we should give him a bit of attention. This one didn’t come from a $500m company. Instead it came from Maarten Lens-FitzGerald of Zcapes.

Here’s what he’s got to say:

Zcapes aims to be world’s leading mobile website and contextual-aware service for shared situations. It is a platform to easily make and host mobile miniblogs around things, places, events and situations. Zcapes stimulates interactions around shared situations. A simple mobile web service that aggregates photo’s, weather information, feeds, comments and also offers rsvp boxes, voting, transactions and even payments.

Zcapes will launch in Beta at MWC.
