Press release 10/01/2014
Betify– Investment for Jenson Seed EIS Fund
We are pleased to announce the investment by the Jenson Seed EIS Fund into Betify. Betify is a free to play mobile application (app), which makes it easy to create challenges about anything, and share it with friends. Betify allows the user to upload a picture or video proof to convince their audience. By winning challenges, users build their reputation on topics they care about, and earn real rewards such as discounts, vouchers and even real products.
Betify was founded in May 2013 by Samuel Huber a 23 year old French entrepreneur based in London. It has evolved from his own need to challenge his friends during the Football Euro Championship in 2012, to become a global platform where users can create any challenges for free and get rewarded with real objects. The Betify team evolved from a single person when the company was created, up to 10 people as of January 2014.
Betify is not a simple app – it’s a way of life which everybody can embrace. The Company differentiates itself from many other tech companies by promoting the app mostly offline through experiential marketing and events. They have already ran several campaigns in British Universities, mostly Manchester and Nottingham, students being Betify’s core market. Ultimately though, Betify aims to go global and be the go-to app for challenging friends on mobile platforms.
