Summer is almost here and we’re dreaming of sunshine and palm trees. We might not be there yet, but here at Tech.Co, we're adding some of this tech-savvy gear to our packing list! Each week, we scour the web for five of the latest and greatest ideas in tech. This week in Startup Spotlight we found a company helping women take sabbaticals, an app to end cold food, a portable vault for the beach and more.
Behere is a service that helps working women travel by taking care of the planning. That way, they spend more time enjoying their free-moments on vacation instead of dealing with logistics. Behere's travel and work lifestyle experience can last from one month to six.
Behere covers the necessities like major travel, a furnished apartment and (our favorite) a workspace with reliable high-speed internet. Additionally, they support a balanced lifestyle with suggested itineraries and networking opportunities. They have a calendar of social events and guides created by women for each city. The guides are tailored to your preferences, whether it's adventure or an authentic Italian pizza you're seeking. Still can’t find what you're looking for? Behere provides constant access to assistance for scheduling and events.
Visiting a food truck for lunch can be the highlight of your day, but not everyone has time to stand in line and wait. Bistro Planet is changing the way foodies order from food trucks through the use of its free app.
Users can browse nearby truck menus, order and pay directly through the app. Unlike other food delivery, you’ll never have to worry about cold food. An alert is sent to your phone as soon as your order is ready. That half-an-hour lunch break doesn’t seem so short now, after all.
Just in time for Father’s Day, the Purseat is a great gift for any parents on the go. As its name implies, the Purseat is an easy-to-carry collapsible car seat that can hold items like a purse. Its compact design eliminates the awkwardness of most car seats by making car seat installation and removal simple no matter the vehicle.
The Purseat is perfect for air travel because of its size. It can store fragile devices such as ipods or expensive children's toys. It can also transform into a traveling booster seat or bed. The purse unfolds with a click and is ready to go. Suitable for ages 3 through 12, the Purseat is convenient protection for children during travel.
Here at Tech.Co, we know that taking technology to the beach can be tricky. Between the sand, surf and strangers, it seems unlikely a device can ever truly be safe. Introducing the Aquavault, a portable vault that attaches to lawn chairs and secures your valuables. The safe is made of durable plastic and features a roomy cargo hull and three-digit combination lock. If it looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw it make a splash on SharkTank—but this safe is for more than the beach. The Aquavault can attach to any horizontal bar on useful everyday items like umbrellas, strollers, golf carts, boats and more.
Invitees ignoring your e-vites? Events are all about attendance and Hobnob changes the way people manage events and RSVPs. The app allows users to create invites and collect RSVP information from their contacts in an unobtrusive way through text message.
Users input event information, select a template and the app creates an invite formatted for SMS messaging. The host can send the invite to any of his or her contacts because invitees can see the invite without having the app. Perfect for planning that 4th of July celebration!
