Transcript

Jean-Marc
My name is Jean-Marc DeBaud, I’m the CEO of the company and the product is LiveTrekker.
Marcus
And what is LiveTrekker?
Jean-Marc
LiveTrekker is an app and it’s a website. It allows you to build your own trip diary, so it works as follows: You start the app; it follows you wherever you are going. Anything that you see that’s interesting, you take a picture, video, voice annotation, anything and it will geo-locate everything in the right place. So it allows you seamlessly to build a very, very quick trip record of what you’ve done. It’s extremely graphical, as you can see on the monitor. Here is a trip that I have made in Germany. And you can see the tracking, wherever I have been, you can see in whatever particular places what are the pictures, what are the videos that I have made, and you are able to relive your trip in amazing levels of detail. Our claim to fame is “We will record your trips in levels of detail that are incomparable with anybody else. We are better.”
Marcus
And you said you have raised $1.7 million with a company in Europe?
Jean-Marc
In Europe, that’s correct.
Marcus
How large is your team?
Jean-Marc
We’re about 10 people today.
Marcus
And how many of those folks are full time with you?
Jean-Marc
Everybody is full time and we are based both in Europe, as well as in Minneapolis.
Marcus
Okay. What are you hoping to accomplish by being at Launch Conference this year?
Jean-Marc
We want to meet users. We want to meet people who are potential users of our apps so they can give us feedback of what we’re doing right, what we’re doing wrong. We want to see what other people are doing in our space and potentially, of course, meeting investors.
Marcus
Nice. How many users do you have right now?
Jean-Marc
We don’t disclose that precisely, but since December 4th we’ve acquired a user base of many thousands of users, and it’s growing fast.
Marcus
Great. Great. If LiveTrekker were a Super Hero, what would its super power be?
Jean-Marc
The ability to really build your second memory. You’re going anywhere, just track, record, share, relive and you will see, it’s amazing. LiveTrekker is your second memory.
Marcus
And so if folks want to find this and give it a try, where will they be able to find it at?
Jean-Marc
On the Apple Store, as well as the Android/Goggle Play Store. It’s available. It’s free for personal use, unlimited. Just go ahead, use it!
