YBLTV: What is it the company does?

Snappy App, Inc.: Snappy is an app that combines the thoughtfulness of a real gift with the effortlessness and choice of a gift card. Snappy offers sending real gifts in seconds, while providing flexibility and choice for receivers, by giving them the power to choose the gift they like most from a collection of personalized gifts. Snappy uses a machine learning system and interacts with uses to offer its tailored gifts and match them to receivers taste and preference. Finally there is a way to save the hassle of searching for the perfect gift without settling for a meaningless and boring gift card. Snappy is here to make gifting simple, fun and special as it should be.

YBLTV: What inspired the company to start-up?

Snappy App, Inc.: A homeless guy in the streets of Tel Aviv! Huh? Yes for real 🙂 After giving money to a homeless guy in the street he gave me a surprise – a ball covered with aluminum foil and inside was a surprise – a chocolate ball! yes it was disgusting but the fact that I got a gift and had to reveal what it was – was so exciting and at the same moment I thought to myself— Why is making people happy have to be so hard? Why is buying a gift so complicated when it could and should be so simple and fun!

YBLTV: How did you go about starting up, did you apply for funding or did you self-fund the project?If so, where did you secure funding from?
