WATERLOO REGION, ON, Jan. 31, 2013 – Communitech announced today that they have selected Dandy to participate in their prestigious accelerator program, Hyperdrive, which provides technology start-ups with funding and mentorship. Dandy is an online community that allows users to submit their app ideas, gather feedback and if the idea is developed, share in the profits collected from the multi-platform mobile app.
“We’re excited to launch Dandy because on a daily basis, people come up with app ideas and most of the time you don’t know what to do with those ideas. Through Dandy people are able to submit their ideas to the site, the community then votes on the best ideas and provides feedback,” explained co-founder Taylor Jones. “If the community loves your idea, we develop the app for Blackberry, iPhone or Android devices. The money generated through sales is then shared with the person who submitted the original idea as well as anyone in the Dandy community who contributed along the way.”
The Hyperdrive program provides companies like Dandy with the resources to succeed in the competitive tech start-up market. In addition to funding, Dandy will now call the Communitech Hub their home, with an office space and access to a pool of world-class mentors as well as in-kind services.
Dandy was co-founded by three young and uniquely experienced entrepreneurs: Taylor Jones of DearPhotograph.com, Karl-Allen Muncey and Matt Scobel. Dandy (dndy.co) is currently in a launching phase, but is accepting emails from new users for early invitation to the active private site.
“There is nothing like this on the market. Dandy is a conduit for us to develop an app we know the community will actually use… after all they created it,” said co-founder Jones.
