Just start a new groupie, invite friends and all cameras will be shared during the event. Hate missing most of the great photos from an event? groupie will help to capture them all!

In the past people had to rely on facebook, email, Dropbox etc… to try to get all of the photos from an event. Of course these methods almost never get all the wanted photos and typically cause frustration amongst friends. Now groupie will do away with all of that frustration.

groupie has closed a seed round of financing led by Extreme Venture Partners with a number of angel investors from around Toronto participating. groupie has been welcomed into the Extreme Venture Partners (EVP) family. EVP has had a successful track record with investments such as Chango, Locationary, J2Play & ThinkDataWorks.

I’ve never seen an app that is so simple and lets me gather all of the great photos from an event” says Sunil Sharma, Managing partner at Extreme Venture Partners, “I’ve had a dozen cases in just the last month where I needed this app, we’re excited to have them in the EVP family”.

This holiday season let groupie do all the work gathering and sharing user’s photos so that the focus can be on what really matters. Tis the season full of celebration & loads of pictures, groupie promises to never let users miss a great moment.
