Behind the original crowdsourced venue-knowledge brand
In 2018, founder Chris Germon was driving his young family to a regional zoo. It was an hour drive, which isn’t long if you haven’t got two tiny humans in the back seat. Alas, Chris listened to the said tiny humans in the back of the car and the journey felt long. Very long.
Once at the zoo, they discovered that seemingly everyone in the citydecided to visit this same zoo, on this particularly hot summer day. The car park was full. Side streets were bumper to bumper. Even illegal nature strip spots were taken. “There should be an app that tells you if it’s busy at a place” Chris hmphed in frustration. Lightbulb moment. This is exactly what Chris wanted, and felt others needed – an app that tells you if a café is quiet if a pub is packed if a stadium has queues. But he didn’t want some questionable assumption made by a computer – he wanted real people’s accounts of the place, in real-time.
Not finding a product that suited his needs, Chris started CrowdPop.
