Outline:

Developed by New York-based graduate company Quidhampton Corp, Linccup is a free app that helps users to extend their business and social circles.

Utilising your phone’s location services and a range of filters, the app identifies local Linccup users who share common interests – simplifying business and social networking.

Linccup makes it easy to arrange meetings with potential new business partners, clients, colleagues or mentors in your neighbourhood and can provide alerts when professional and social contacts are nearby – making it the ideal networking tool for professionals on the move.

Linccup also offers free texting and group messaging, and the app’s tag system makes it simple to organise and search your contacts.

Start-up life comprises dizzying highs, nauseating lows and cash flow problems - but it’s all worth it.
