once upon a time, with +Rich Pleeth, +Alan Fayolle and +Robin Gadsby 
The story behind Sup app.

Robin, Alan and Rich knew that they wanted to create a business together ever since they first started working together, when Rich was their client as CMO at GetTaxi and previously Chrome Marketing at Google. We had some chats in (a lot of) bars which led to idea sessions where we came together on Rich’s balcony in Shoreditch with post it notes and wrote down all the problem solving ideas we could think of. We had some pretty wild ideas out there however one really seemed to stick with us. We are extremely social beings and feed off the energy of others, we all travel a lot and check in on Facebook regularly at airports or new cities we are in. The number of times a friend would message us either at an airport or a random city where we didn’t think we had any friends was remarkable but they would usually message between two hours to two days later and we’d have already had dinner or flown to the next city. 

People don’t like sharing their exact location constantly with friends, ultimately it enables stalking, you can see exactly where your friends are, if they’re together, what they are doing etc. The three of us decided we wanted to solve this problem, an app that alerts you if one of your friends come into your set perimeter starting at 20 metres to 2000 metres but not the exact location or which way they are directionally. Hence we came up with the radar function of the Sup app which removes the fear of ‘stalking’, you can see which friends are nearby but can’t actually see where they are exactly and you can only see up to 2000 metres. With privacy at the heart of the product we also wanted a ‘go dark’ feature which takes you off the grid, if you’re in meetings or just having a busy day we thought it would be handy and important. 

Following initial feedback from our beta testers, the overwhelming feedback was that they wanted a text chat function as well as the existing voice and Sup notifications. So it was back to the drawing board to see how we could implement chat, keeping the product beauty at the centre of everything.

That’s how the Sup app was born. We could not be more excited; as founders, alongside Alex Barton, our CTO to see what you think of Sup app.
