January 15, 2015 - It's only been two months since the Fall 2014 class graduated from Draper University's entrepreneurship program in Silicon Valley, and our alumni are already starting to make waves with their startups. Just today, DU alumni startup iGreet was featured in TIME article "5 Apps You Just Can't Miss This Week." Vicho Dimitrov (Bulgaria) and Hua Zhao (China) met each other in DU's Fall 2014 class and joined forces to create iGreet, the world's first greeting card company that uses augmented reality to bring the cards to life before your eyes. You can download their mobile app for free from the iTunes App Store, and then create customizable greeting cards that you can pick up from a local Walgreens store near you. When the recipient scans the cards with their iPhone, the card will be brought to life with moving images
According to the TIME article, "It’s a way of jazzing up boring greeting cards and making birthday cards that much more affectionate, but it also evidence that our phones are the key to getting a lot more out of even the most mundane aspects of non-digital life."
Congrats to Vicho and Hua, and keep an eye out for new Valentine's Day cards coming out soon!
