Floobs, as I wrote earlier, is a mobile internet TV service for creating your own live channels anywhere. I stopped by their office yesterday and met co-founder Kai Lemmetty to talk about their company and plans for the future.
As this Finnish startup says on their home page: “Floobs.com is a new service offering Community Created Live TV-channels.” aka a Ustream.tv or Stickam clone. But Floobs comes with the traditional Finnish twist: mobile. They are developing their own mobile client and also a mobile version of their site (mobile.floobs.com). They are angel funded, employ nine people and “are looking to hire more”.
They are currently running a beta in Finnish and they will launch the beta in English “soon”. I wish the company founded by two young ambitious men the best of luck, but they will have a big struggle in front of them in making the service a success beyond Finnish borders.
