Finally... our 4th (LAST) featured startup: Hailo!
Hailo is a mobile app for iPhones and Androids that is changing personal transportation. Since their release in late 2011 in London and Dublin, they have a huge following of both drivers and passengers and now it’s making its way to NYC. This app will snag a yellow cab for you wherever you are, whenever you want. All it takes is a tap on your phone. You can jump out of the cab as soon as you arrive and get an instant receipt by email!

Announcing our 2nd featured startup... Tout'd!
Tout’d is an easy-to-use social utility that provides a forum for exchanging recommendations with friends. Tout’d connects you on a person-to-person level and offers a simplified way to get recommendations from the people that know you and your tastes best. Recommendations are sourced as responses to a friend’s unique need for help, rather than in response to a recent experience, providing a more genuine motivation for submitting the recommendation. These layers of social accountability and reciprocity make Tout’d recommendations more valuable and actionable than other review sites.

We are excited to announce our first featured startup: Cheek'd!
Cheek’d bridges the gap between online dating and real-world romance by providing members with physical cards that they can use to entice people from the real world to flirt with them in the virtual world. It’s the 2.0 version of “Call Me.” The cards offer a real purpose and advantage to other online dating sites and expand a subscriber’s dating opportunities beyond the pool of people registered with an online dating service. By bringing the social aspect back into dating and moving it from your computer to your everyday life, Cheek'd is giving it’s members an opportunity to leverage technology without completely depending on it, while promoting a safe and playful interaction in the physical world at a time when virtual interaction is growing and online privacy is scarce.
