A revolutionary dog walking app that is set to disrupt the industry, has launched its first funding round to advance its use of blockchain technology and help drive its ambitious growth plans.
Launched in BETA phase in June 2021, GoWalkies has been developed with an intuitive interface that connects dog walkers with dog owners – providing the opportunity for walkers to grow their business, whilst giving owners complete peace of mind over the care of their four-legged friends.
The only dog walking app that enables walkers to keep 100% of their earnings, GoWalkies also prides itself on providing owners with carefully vetted and insured ‘on-demand’ walkers, who can share their walk location and imagery via a unique real-time in-app tracking feature.
Having already received thousands of downloads from walkers and owners alike, GoWalkies now plans to raise £500,000 to invest in both back-end and customer facing innovations that will improve user experience and solidify GoWalkies’ advancing position in the pet-technology sector both UK and worldwide. This includes the development and implementation of advanced blockchain technology for the provision of smart contracts.
Sonny D’Avola, founder of GoWalkies, explained: “In developing the concept for GoWalkies, I wanted to become the first and only dog walking app that not only enables dog walkers to easily build their own business, but also assures pet safety through unique features like real-time tracking. To take this one step further, I am now in the process of developing and implementing blockchain technology that will take the GoWalkies app to the next level through the provision of smart contracts – which will enable us to quickly drive both national and international growth.
I am, therefore, incredibly excited to be launching our first funding round and am looking forward to developing new relationships with investors united with our vision to completely dominate the global dog walking market. I believe this is an incredible opportunity for potential investors to get in early in the next tech unicorn, potentially yielding massive returns….Watch this space.”
Free to download via Google Play and the Apple App Store, GoWalkies has a growing database of dog walking businesses and owners and is quickly establishing itself as a key player in the pet-tech market.
Now live via Seed Legals, the first GoWalkies funding round will close on 5th April 2022 and will provide the opportunity for one or multiple investors to obtain their share of a 20% equity stake in the innovative tech start-up.
