Detailed Description

Update

In November 2012, Beepl was acquired by Brand Embassy for an undisclosed sum. Around the same time, the consumer-facing Q&A site was taken off-line.

Founded in April 2011, Beepl let users seek answers and opinion from subject specialists, enthusiasts and their social graph.

Following a three month long private alpha, the Q&A site launched publicly on 16th January 2012 to widespread media coverage.

In July 2011, Beepl announced that it had raised a 'six figure' seed round led by Credo Ventures, the Prague-based VC fund targeting early stage technology companies in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

In the previous month, the London-based company announced that it had recruited technology journalist and ex-TechCrunch writer Steve O'Hear as co-founder and CEO. O'Hear left the company in February 2012.
