Veems and Sky Eye Visit Vigattin Radio of Radyo Inquirer
Two people behind the quickest private messaging app, and a member of the fly boys of the Philippines recently graced a visit to the coolest tech startup community radio show in the country anchored by Elison Barcelo, Arne Barcelo, the Cheerleader of the Startup Community, and your Pambansang Blogger ng Pilipinas, Ross Del Rosario, the self-declared National Blogger of the Philippines and founder of WazzupPilipinas.com.
Veems founder and CEO Iddo Goren, Veems Communications head Irene Enriquez, also known as Geek Girl because of her blog, and Matthew Cua, founder and CEO of Sky Eye Inc, which provides drone services for aerial mapping, were the very special "Vigattin" guests of the Vigattin Radio show of Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 AM last Saturday, September 19, 2015 between 10 to 11 am.
Filipinos are a social and friendly race that is why social media networks have been very widely used in the country. Now adds a new messaging app that boasts of Veemers would rejoice to find out that the number of subscribers to the Veems app has already reached half a million making it already one of the very popular mobile apps in the Philippines. The most interesting information to take note about the app is that it is very easy to use in quickly sending customized messages - instantly even to several individuals all at the same time. Veems also lets you express your voice by creating photos with sound and sharing them with friends and the community of Veemers. You can add your unique take on any users photo by ReVoicing their images.
Sky Eye is an organization that many should support and even fund because of what they are doing. Unlike Google Map that has not updated all of their satellite shots, the fly boys does not need the technology of others to help them with their mapping. They can innovatively create their own flying drone equipped with a high-resolution camera that can be used for many purposes to help in understanding our geography, climate change, potential environmental hazards, and many others. It was great to find out that Matthew is also involved in other organizations that would also help put Filipinos in the map for innovative products and services., aside from hanging around with Apl de Aps of the Black Eyed Peas, one of his investors in his other company called Awesome Lab - an experimental research lab with an interdisciplinary team of designers, engineers and scientists.
More power to the techie Filipinos for making sure we are constantly being movers and shakers in the field of technology. Being an Electronics and Communications Engineer, with previous employments as Information and Communications Technology officer, I am always proud to hear fellow Filipinos that are making a name for themselves not only in the country but also worldwide as an international influencer getting global recognition.
At Vigattin Radio of Radyo Inquirer, we have been guesting visionary technopreneurs who has the guts to take the risk in a very competitive world. We salute all Filipinos who also support and believe in their fellow Filipinos.
