Vivino has just launched the 2nd version of their wine app bringing them closer to their ambition of delivering one of the world’s best wine apps and a new approach to purchasing wine. Together with one of the original founders of Skype – Janus Friis – SEED Capital has invested in Vivino.
With the Vivino app users get extensive information and recommendations of almost any wine right at their fingertips. The app provides user recommendations from its base of 130.000 users and directly to the purchasing situation. Whether at the supermarket, wine store or in a restaurant. The Vivino database contains information on more than ½ mio. wines, and can be delivered to the user in a matter of seconds.
The first version of the Vivino app was aimed at testing the Vivino concept. Based on its success and user feedback the current version presents significant upgrades and is easily one of the best wine apps available. The app is free and available for Android and Apple devices.
With a pre-seed investment SEED Capital invites Vivino into their pre-seed portfolio with high expectations. Niels Vejrup Carlsen, Investment Director: “The global retail market for wine is roughly four times the size of the music market. If you are able to tap into this market the possibilities are endless, and Vivino seems more equipped for this than anyone else we’ve seen globally”.
