Nocto was one of the five startups pitching at the Paradiso Launchpad Meetup last month. They created an App that helps you find out where you should go if you want to have the best night out based on your desires for music type, atmosphere and attendance. Nocto just released their App through the Apple store on Friday the 27th of January. We wanted to hear all about it from David Franzén, Nocto’s founder and CEO.
How it all started
As a Swedish student at Rotterdam School of Management, Franzén got the following assignment: work out a plan for a company that solves a particular problem. “I was interested in the nightlife scene, and asked myself: what are the problems there? A problem that I often experienced myself, is that there is no way of knowing what is going on around town in real-time.” That is how he got to the idea of Nocto. Franzén decided to continue with the idea beyond the university assignment and make Nocto happen.
