A little over a year ago, four alumni from The University of Texas at Austin set out to develop mobile apps that make Social Media, Truly Social. We envisioned walking into a bar and taking over public TVs, using our smartphones as remotes and hurling YouTube videos to the big screen. It sounded like magic but seemed doable and within a month we had an alpha build of our smartphone application, Hurl.
Hurl transforms public TV screens into Social Media Jukeboxes, allowing anyone to share anything to any screen from any smartphone or mobile device. The platform is now a formal solution for bars and restaurants looking to engage customers while boosting profits.
Today, we are in The Houston Technology Center’s Ignition Accelerator and members of Microsoft’s BizSpark Plus program. Hurl has already been setup at two businesses here in Houston and the project is growing fast!
We are Hurl and that’s social media.
