I will keep this short and sweet but want to say that I mentioned this idea to a friend of mine when I first moved to the Bay Area in 2016 at a coffee shop. His name is Mo and told him “what if we could put tablets on the back of seats in ubers, create an app where riders can either control the media they are interacting with and then split the revenue with the drivers?”. Techcrunch.com covered this story and I am personally looking forward to the read.
He loved the idea but we quickly shifted to planning the concert series he was helping me put together and the idea was left in the dust. I’m not mad that I wasn’t the one who pursued the idea but I am glad that someone else had this vision and is bringing it to reality. I hope that Octopus is planning on doing rev-share with the drivers and creating an additional source of income in the ever growing yet low wage sector of the ‘Gig-economy’.

What is Zypp:
Zypp is a MobilePage to organize your digital life. Think of Zypp as a cross between a website that doesn’t need a domain and social media that you can customize and add features to. Building your page is simply done by adding plugins for things like contact info, blog, mobile store, events, calendar, and much more. BUT in order to figure out which plugins to build first WE NEED YOUR HELP.
What does the Private Beta entail?:
Zypp is partnering with 100 brands to figure out the best ways to use this amazing platform and in return they will receive a FREE credit of $10.00 for each user within the company for life. We could just build a bunch of integrations that we THINK people want to use OR we can work with your brand to figure out the best plugins that add value to your business, staff and work flow to ultimately make your company more efficient and profitable.
We are currently signing partnerships with companies in the hospitality space including (nightclubs, restaurants, hotels and event companies), Startups, VC’s, Accelerators, Coworking spaces and influencers who have a notable following.
