Covve revolutionises the way people network by empowering their traditional address book. It packages an advanced contact and relationship management platform in a simple to use app.
Covve is the brainchild of Yiannis Gavrielides & Alex Protogerellis. The two friends worked for years at large corporates, in London and identified the lack of a tool to help professionals better manage and leverage one of their most valuable assets, their business relationships. Covve was created to fill-in that gap.
“We believe that opportunities arise from warm professional relationships. We aim to stand out in a world shifting towards casual, shallow business relationships and lack of privacy. We have designed Covve to help you foster real, warm relationships giving you a significant business edge by exposing more opportunities.”
Covve is ran by an experienced team with deep domain expertise and have built a sophisticated, cross-platform product (iPhone, Andoid, Web), used by thousands of professionals worldwide. Covve has proved strong market appetite and revenue potential in the US and the UK, and has users in more than 130 countries.
After extensive screening of 400 pre-selected startups across Europe, Covve was chosen as one of six to partner with Hubraum the innovation arm of Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) and Nokia to get early access to new technology and launch differentiating features by integrating with their systems as part of their Warp Future Communication program.
Alongside institutional investors, including San Francisco based Dataelite and the National Bank of Greece, Covve has received funding from two European innovation grants and private investors.
