Today, in SnipSnap news, SnipSnap’s CEO and founder Ted Mann is featured on Philly.com’s Business section. He dishes the details on how SnipSnap got started and became couponers’ top choice in the app store.
I got a coupon I took a picture of on my iPhone. The first place I tried it was Babies R Us. When I got to checkout, I said, “I don’t have my coupon, but I took a picture of it. Can you scan it?” Once I redeemed one and somebody asked me, “What’s that app? I want that app.” I said to myself: What if there was an app, and what would it do?
What next for SnipSnap? An Android version of the is oh-so-close to release and manufacturer coupon support is on the horizon! Check out the whole interview here.
We’re excited to announce that SnipSnap has joined Project Liberty, a new incubator housed at the Philadelphia Inquirer building. The program is funded by a $250,000 grant from the Knight Foundation, will last for the next six months, and is being led by Philadelphia Media Network (parent of the Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com), Knight, and Ben Franklin Technology Partners.
We’re very proud to report that we’re already working closely with the Inquirer’s sales team to pitch SnipSnap’s unique approach to mobile couponing to their top pre-print advertisers and insert publishers. And we’re excited to bring as much as we can from the accelerator world — from skill share workshops to entrepreneur speaker series to hackathons — to our new office at 400 North Broad Street. If we have our way, we’ll do as much to incubate Philly Media as the other way around!
