StreetPin looks to make its digital mark in south London

A new tech business is appealing for your help – and might even be able to offer some paid work to Croydon residents.

streetpinStreetPin offers the local community notice board for the digital age, offering a sales and communication network.

“We now aim to escalate to the ‘UK’s most connected town’ in Croydon for our launch,” Tim Buick, StreetPin’s founder, said.

“We are now aiming to fund the launch version of StreetPin via CrowdFunding and sponsorship in the coming weeks, and we need help to engage Croydon’s many and varied communities for our launch.”

StreetPin wants to…

  • Provide instant, interactive sites for retailers, churches, schools, events, markets… and then make them accessible on mobile, web, tablets and apps
  • Help Croydon’s local businesses to promote themselves to those here and now
  • Simple point-and-click deal creation – we aim to bring mobile marketing to the masses
  • Breakdown barriers between communities in Croydon
  • Utilise online to drive interaction and sales offline, in Croydon’s streets
  • Aggregate data, feeds, other businesses content to produce relevant, local hubs
  • Make it simple for everyone to utilise digital solutions
  • Make it affordable

  1. This seems like a good idea also for those of us who have local businesses without a ‘shop front’.
