- Beepl, a social interactive site, allows users to seek answers and opinion from subject specialists, enthusiasts and their social network.
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.
