e27 Says Swapit is Mind-Blowing

swapit-blog_e20-top100The great folks at e27 have just published a new article on Startups in Asia. They cover 30 great and mind-blowing startups across the region and Swapit is one of them.

Here is a quick quote:

Receiving seed funding from Aria Ventures in December, Swapit is a mobile app that allows users to easily buy and sell stuff nearby. With instant messaging and maps integration, Swapit […] pro-actively reaches out to potential buyers who are nearby. Swapit is an app that promotes face-to-face deals rather than impersonal online orders.

True that! We love to connect buyers and sellers in densely populated places like Hong Kong. People who are nearby each other can trade in real-time and therefore, make everyone’s life a lot easier.
