Vleepo is a start-up based out of Toronto with a software team based out of Greece. In the app, users create “vleepos” which are an extension of the classic group chat. Designed to be easy and fun to use, vleepos are thematic chats incorporating powerful collaboration, privacy and discovery tools. Each vleepo can be private and invite only, or public and discoverable to highly curated audiences. Founder, Matthew Staikos, described the app as a new search tool that allows you to search for things going on around you and around the world, as well as contact your friends and strangers. Vleepo attempts to create a platform that unifies the discovery functions of apps such as OpenTable with the communication and social aspects of WhatsApp and Messenger.
