Fast and loose race at a slow and steady pace!
The story of Bopgig is a long one – and not without hiccups.
2001: Final-year undergrad student enters MBA competition.
2003: Multiple PHP apps cobbled together. Later GrooveGuide is added – a free street-press magazine. Problem: lack of app integration and hence automated signups.
2009: Rethinking the business model and user experience. BopGig or GigPop?
2010: A working prototype launches. A Y-Combinator application occurs.
2011: Development moves from USA to Israel.
I'm like Jimmy Page, but I create requirements, not riffs.

2012: Public launch and then a pivot into indefinite hibernation!
2020: Hibernation continues!
