Live broadcasting technology
Founded by serial tech entrepreneur Matt Hagger (he won a Smarta 100 award with business tool Bizk.it last year), ZKatter has raised £1m in private investment, private equity and through an exclusive partnership with mobile giant Samsung. Differentiating itself from real-time photo and video sharing platforms, Zkatter seeks to aggregate 'live moments' into a search network. After winning a Samsung developer challenge, Zkatter launched version 1.0 exclusively on its OS platform and from next year Zkatter will feature on the box, instructions and will be preloaded on every Samsung Android device. Hagger says the partnership has enabled Zkatter to test its technology within a niche community, but will fully launch as a community and platform in 2012, when it will also raise a next round of funding. Still only 30, Hagger started his first business at 21 and has won numerous awards. He rates Zkatter as his 'most radical idea yet', but says he's energised by London's burgeoning tech community.
