ShopSavvy Looks For Funding
Alexander Muse, the founder of Dallas-based Big In Japan, said this week that the firm is looking to raise funding for ShopSavvy, a mobile phone application they are developing. According to a blog post by Muse on his Texas Startup Blog, they "need to raise capital" and that he needs to "hire someone to help me fully exploit our opportunities" for the application. ShopSavvy is a piece of mobile software which runs on Google Android phones, and allows users to scan a bar code using a camera and pulls up the best prices on that item from nearby, local stores and online sites. ShopSavvy was a winner in Google's Android Challenge.
