CWHK: Who are your current customers? Where are they from?
GL: They are all from Hong Kong. Some of our current customers come from baby products retailing and postpartum services.
CWHK: What do you want to add to the next version of the app?
GL: We would like to allow more personalization, for instance, preference settings for types of offering-updates and types of shops where customers want to receive updates. We are also looking at embedding payment--for instance, NFC or ultrasonic tech-enabled payment--into our app. This might happen at end-2014 at the latest.
CWHK: What are the major challenges facing you as a startup?
GL: Talent shortage. The tech talent pool is small in Hong Kong, and tech pros rather work for banks that can pay much better than startups like us.
