We’ve just invested in Drync – FG Angels

We are excited to announce our fourth FG Angels investment in Drync – who have raised $434K from our FG Angels syndicate.

Drync builds a smartphone application that bridge the gap between experiencing wine and being able to catalogue and purchase it.  The company likes to call this “impulse commerce for wine.”  With their application, one can scan any wine bottle, immediately have the wine identified and priced for instant purchase or review.  Currently Drync has a database of over two million wines.

As wine nerds, we’ve spent too much time taking pictures of great wines and never having the time or the ability to truly follow up on our passions.  If you are a wine lover, you will love this app.  With the funds raised, they are going to add a lot of great new features.  Enjoy!

    What sort of $$ are available from “wine producer/marketers” about your users and as a user do you offer a paid version where my username/email/details are not on sold?

    Hi Dean! I’m not sure I fully understand the question(s). Are you asking whether there is an opportunity to monetize our user data with wine producers? No question wineries today would like to know more about their best customers.

    Feel free to drop me a line if you have other q’s: brad at drync dot com.
