A few weeks ago, I was having a walk in my local area and came across those big local notice board you see pretty much in every single local area.
In fact, if you have a closer look around, you will see that we are surrounded by a lot of local notices in most of local shops, local coffee shops, local supermarkets, etc…
As an entrepreneur, I obviously started thinking how this service can be improved for local communities …? And instantly I remembered about that Guardian project I heard a couple of years ago, N0tice ! Here is a great article to better understand what’s N0tice all about ( http://gigaom.com/2011/10/28/guardians-n0tice-puts-a-new-twist-on-hyperlocal/ ).
If you are already a N0tice user or somehow familiar with the product , it would great to read your thoughts .
Still in this path of trying to find startups with a potential solution to improve the old school notice board, I randomly thought of a french startup called Geokiwi ( Unfortunately, it clearly looks like the startup isn’t trading any longer).
A few years ago, when I came across Geokiwi through the famous Leweb conference, I can clearly remember thinking what a great idea.
Here is a video of Geokiwi presentation at Leweb in 2011.
Until now , I haven’t really seen( If you do, don’t hesitate to share) a product with a great solution but I definitely believe the opportunity is still there for the company who can come up with an easy and innovative notice board.
