Hey Spogo, WHAT’S NEXT?!?
As you are well aware, season one of Spogo is officially in the books — and again, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for making it possible. But just as 31 other NFL teams are doing today (screw you, Ravens), it’s time to look ahead. Without further ado, it’s time to answer some of our users’ most frequent questions:
“So, what’s next?! Just tell us!!”
In terms of the application itself, Spogo will be undergoing a significant redesign and rebuild to make it bigger, better, faster and stronger (sorry, Kanye). Unfortunately, this means you’ll have to wait patiently for a few months while we’re working. But when we return, Spogo will be live for multiple sports at the same time. YUP, I SAID IT. I can’t tell you exactly which sports we’ll be launching for yet, but if you use your brain, you can probably figure it out. We’ll also be working hard to bring even more venues and businesses in Boston, New York and beyond to the Spogo platform. Rewards for users will only get better, we promise.
“Why in God’s name are you moving to Providence?”
David and I will be heading down to Providence, RI for the next 3-4 months to participate in Betaspring, an accelerator program for startups. We’ll use this time to rebuild Spogo. The rest of team Spogo will be spread between Boston and New York, working hard building the app, keeping you amused on the blog, and signing up some bad ass partners.
“Will there be more parties?”
More than you can ever imagine. You’ll just have to wait for re-launch until you can do this again.
Over a year ago, Spogo started as an idea between two friends over Gchat. Today, we can proudly say that we launched an actual app that had actual users and actual partners. But we’re not nearly satisfied. It’s just the beginning. So don’t worry, we’ll be back soon! I mean, how can you not trust these guys…
