US startup and STRV’s client Geekatoo raised $1.7 million from various investors, including 500 Startups. Congratulations! This is a great milestone, and we are glad to be working with such a driven and amazing team.
It all started when STRV was introduced to Geekatoo, a fast-growing onsite tech support company, by Tomáš Laboutka, the CEO of Hotel Quickly, in 2012. A one year later, after Geekatoo had gotten involved with 500 Startups, Christian Shelton, Geekatoo’s Co-founder, contacted STRV to talk about a mobile development partnership. We developed an iPhone app for them, and now we are working on an Android app.
Geekatoo has an interesting focus. It’s going to go far – just look at the amount of seed money it’s collected so far: $1.7 million is one of the highest amounts raised by a single company participating in 500 Startups. Investors (500 Startups included) trust that Geekatoo going places and see a great opportunity.

Geek Squad, Geekatoo’s main competitor, was recently bought by BestBuy. So, in regards to innovation, we bet their hands are tied. It’s only a matter of time before Geekatoo overtakes Geek Squad on the market.
