Sometimes, you can’t put a face to a name after a business meeting? Don’t worry, the majority of us – 98 percent to be exact – can’t remember a person’s name, but can easily point them out in a crowd. With that in mind, co-founder Anthony Montalbano and his team developed Spincard, a mobile app that simplifies the exchange of business information using a six-digit code.
Unlike LinkedIn, Spincard creates a personalized number shortcut that is linked to your contact information, including your social media information.
“We are like Bitly for your contact information,” says Montalbano.
The company is based out of Detroit, where they launched in February. Led by a team of four, the focus of the app is on the full-screen photo of the person you just met. So you can shuffle through the pictures of the people you recently met, rather than business cards.
“We wanted to focus on the visual, because the goal is to remember the people you meet and make sure to follow-up,” explains Montalbano.
Spincard app recently won Reader’s Choice for Best Startup during Tech Cocktail Week. The company plans to raise a round of seed funding in the near future.
