In the recent APAC Entrepreneur Summit organized by Microsoft BizSpark, nine APAC startups pitched in front of an audience of investors and judges, and goCatch , a Sydney based startup walked away with the top prize. Essentially, goCatch is an app that connects passengers to cab drivers, acting as a middleman to bypass the traditional taxi booking system where one has to call the taxi call center. With goCatch, passengers can now see the nearest available taxis on their smartphones in real-time. Some of the other milestones which the startup managed to impress the judges was the fact that they had partnered with companies that include Microsoft, Nokia, PayPal, RIM, Google and GM Cabs. The app has more than 7,000 taxi drivers as well as a total of 50,000 users. Not bad an achievement in Sydney alone.
