French start-up Karry’s disruptive app, developed for iOS and Android systems, allows its users to access a community of travellers going to the same place at the same time as them. Karry is intuitive as it satisfies people’s natural desire to meet others and develop new relationships when they are travelling around the world. | Hailed as “disruptive, intuitive and innovative”, Karry will be showcasing and giving demos of its new app at Web Summit 2015 in Dublin (3-5 November), which has been set up by Business France, the French export-support agency, in partnership with French Tech. It will also be looking meet new partners in the travel and tourism, travel tech, new tech, social media, community and digital sectors. | Karry optimises the way people travel, allowing app users to meet other travellers and people living in their travel destination, prior to departure. Karry completely changes the way people look at travelling by allowing them to socialise before they have even left. | The Karry travelling companion app has the following features: Karry Away | App users who are about to travel can enter their destination/transit/departure time into the Karry mobile app and be instantly matched with hundreds of others living in or travelling to that destination. Karry Event | App users can find out who will be at the next major global event before it happens. This new feature is being launched especially for Web Summit 2015 on 3-5 November 2015, and will then be replaced with features for other upcoming events such as Maison & Objet, Winter Wonderland and Weather Festival. | Karry Home | Using its in-built Google Maps function, Karry pinpoints the geographical location of app users who are not travelling, who are then able to meet travellers and commuters to their hometown. | Karry Passport | The “Karryiers Flow” feature displays the Facebook profile pictures of all app users in HD. App users simply tap on another user’s photo to check out their profile and chat with them further prior to travelling. | Karry Places | App users can check out any restaurant, bar or hotel reviewed by another user by accessing their “Karry Places” map and identify other users by where they hang out. Alternative and “insiders only” places can also be added. | Come to Web Summit 2015, meet the Karry team, try the app! | Karry is looking forward to giving demos of its new app at Web Summit 2015. Thanks to the exciting new feature, Karry Event, exclusively for people going to Web Summit 2015, attendees will be able to optimise their participation at the trade show via social media and build invaluable relationships with other attendees based on a shared interest in new technology. Karry aims to tailor its app for many more major social events, such as Coachella, Burning Man, New York Marathon, World Travel Market and the Geneva International Motor Show. | Karry hopes to meet potential investors at Web Summit 2015. It is looking to raise between €200k and €300k to increase its presence in Europe and hold promotional evenings in major tourist hubs, such as London, Paris, Moscow, Barcelona, Milan, Berlin, Ibiza and the South of France. | The French start-up aspires to build new partnerships by proposing a tailored version of its travel companion app to international firms whose employees are frequently on the move. | Karry is also looking to grow its B2B service for plugging the idea of displaying a Karry tab on booking engines and online travel agencies, thus promoting a travel process where travellers look at flights online, check reviews for the hotel they want to stay at, book a room and then potentially use the Karry mobile app to see who else will be travelling to the same destination at that time or soon after. | The beta version of the Karry mobile app is available now on the AppStore. | For further information on Karry, please visit www.karry-me.com
