It turns out that Glavstart did fund a project during the last startup weekend in Novosibirsk. The winner received an angel round of investment of about $100K. The winner startup’s name is “GoOffline”. The idea is to give people tools to organize and manage their activities, like when a group of people want to go out on a picnic or paintball shootings and they need to schedule it, decide who brings what, etc. The best part however is that the service will offer coupons and discounts to these people for group purchases. In other words, it’s a coupon/discount service dedicated to the outdoor entertainment market segment, with a simple planning tool as an additional bait to lure the people into using the service. The principal founder of the startup is Alena Fedoseeva, whom I used to work in one company some years ago. Congratulations for getting the funding! The startup doesn’t have any site that I could link to at this moment, but I will do another post once they have anything to show to the public.
