BlogBeats, has launched the first Geo­-Time tagged blogging platform, that will allow users to exchange information about places and interests they encounter in their  daily lives and travels. The company also recently secured an undisclosed pre­-Series A investment from Michigan­-US  based investor.

Founded in late 2014 by Priyank Jain and Lokesh Jain, graduates of Indian Ivys –  ISB & BITS Pilani, and Masters in Technology Management from Indiana-US. The duo re­imagined blogging as a culture introducing the first ever Geo­Time­-tagged feature that will  facilitate writing across generations, time periods, languages, locations, neighbourhoods and  communities.

“At a time when startup funding is slightly on a dip, we are proud to successfully complete this  pre Series A round, which is also strong endorsement of the potential of BlogBeats to transform  how content will be consumed in the future.”  adds Priyank Jain, Founder, BlogBeats.

BlogBeats aims to be a comprehensive content creation and discovery platform that will  encourage the creation of blogs and other forms of content across 200+ categories, all tagged  with a geo­location and time­period to enable enhanced search & discovery and better  interactivity. It helps businesses with location targeting, thereby, reaching the right audience.  Support for multiple Indian languages to facilitate language­agnostic content as well as a B2B  solution to help organizations manage their digital content, is also on the cards, stirring a new  wave of innovation in the technology and digital media industry."

"We're excited to launch a completely new way of blogging and create content for publishers  and newbies alike that will disrupt the existing digital content paradigm ," says Lokesh Jain,  Co­founder, BlogBeats.  

How BlogBeats works:

  • Users can create Beats as per their current location by keying in text, comments and  even multi­media content (including images and – shortly – audio and video files).   

  • This information could be about restaurants, travel, beaches, the weather, sports,  recommendations, etc, in any particular place in the world.   

  • Uniquely, blog entries on BlogBeats will appear based on specific geo­locations and  contextual time­periods.

"Our mission is to revolutionize the world of blogging by vastly improved discoverability combined with ease of creation, through its unique concept of Geo and Time tagged Beats, so that everyone can benefit from it. We want every town and city to come alive with real  expressions and information generated by residents, so that everyone can benefit from it.  ‘Beat' as your heart beats, tag with location and time period and your expressions become instantly discoverable in your neighbourhood," the startup mentioned in a press release.
