iSpiMi is the mobile App that makes local shopping easier! It is a community of fellow bargain hunters who love to find, share and snap a deal!
What is the iSpiMi App?
The iSpiMi App will give access to a social network of active local customers ready to shop immediately! It is a community of fellow bargain hunters who love to find, share and snap a deal!
The iSpiMi App will make local shopping easier, faster, more convenient, and more accessible. Shoppers will be able to find out about local deals in their vicinity that are not normally advertised by the local smaller shops and merchants without having to walk down to the shop or do a lot of searching online to find these deals. When shoppers do find a deal they like, they can then go down to the local shop and pick it up.
Who We Are?
We are an intrepid group of entrepreneurs focused on changing local shopping experiences both for shoppers (bargain hunters) and retail merchants.
We met through Meetup.com when our leader, Peter Donovan, posted for interested people wanting to be part of a new startup venture and willing to do the work required. Initially we had about fourteen people who came to the first few meetups. One by one the others dropped out until there was five of us left … still keen and ready to go!
We then started the process of brain-storming for ideas, evaluating these and rejecting any that did not meet our criteria, until finally we settled on the iSpiMi App idea and business model for our startup. That process did take some time, but we believe we are on to a winner.
We have recently lost a couple of our co-founders to other projects; namely Emanuele Tonello and Alexei Kholodov. We wish them both the best in their new ventures.
The iSpiMi app has now been launched on both Android and iPhone! Join the iSpiMi community as a Merchant or Customer, or both!
Feedback on the iSpiMi app is sought and happily accepted. Let us know how we can improve the iSpiMi experience for you.
