My first real post on this website and I'm looking for funding!
A little about my creation shall we say.
What we do: We are a directory for taxi services within the UK
Basically you load up the website, select your country, type in the city you're looking for a taxi service and hit the search icon! Your search goes through our database and gives you a list of results for taxi services within that city. Simple as really...
Of course there are competitors like 118, yell, and a few other small companies but lets face it 118 you have to pay an arm and a leg just to get a number for 1 taxi service and yell.com is a directory for everything and doesnt exactly zone in on one perticular directory.
The website is up and running and has over 2000 taxi services within the database, all the identity is done, letter heads, logo, business card design, website etc..
The websites been up around 5 days, with a total of 400 unique hits so far.
What I'm looking for funding for, is to expand the website out of the UK and into Europe and the USA. Now I've built and designed this whole idea myself, the database alone took me 3 weeks to do to be able to expand to Europe and the USA I'd need alot of help. I basically need funding to hire people to improve the search, add functionality to the site, add Europe and the USA.
I'm looking for around £2m to be able to do this, this would pay for salary's, equipment and the redevelopment of the backend site and the development of mobile phone applications (iPhone, BlackBerry & Nokia).
If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
