As we get ever closer to the launch of GolfBirdie’s global app things are getting very exciting and to be honest a bit surreal. Ever since we entered the Virgin Media Business competition things have really started to snowball…it could be the best thing we have ever done….
Its been a long road since we came up with the idea and the app has finally been finished after a long 7 months of development. The App will be released this summer.
Since the very start we have had a great response from both the golf and drone industry. Starting in Ireland signing up some of the top courses such as Old Head Kinsale and Waterville golf links. It came as a surprise when we then got the chance to expand to Portugal bringing on board some outstanding courses such as European Tour Venue’s The Oceanico Victoria and the breathtaking Vale Do Lobo resort.
GolfBirdie has now opened a second office located in Tampa, Florida. We have partnered with an amazing company Sky Camera UAV who have done work on many National Geographic productions and Hollywood Films.
Being a part of the Virgin Media Voom 2016 has now opened so many doors for us and the publicity we have received from major publications such as the Huffington post and industryandbusiness.ie are invaluable for a start-up like us. We believe winning this competition would be a major turning point for GolfBirdie and help us help Golfers all over the world enjoy their round that bit better.
After the first week of the competition we were flown by Virgin Media to London to participate in the photoshoot for the competition press release. It was great to get to meet the organisers of the competition and some of the businesses we were up against. After a long day walking around with an oversized iPhone we did feel like we were recording an episode of trigger happy tv!
Keep an eye on our exciting journey over the next few months with our weekly blogs and videos. We are really looking forward to get in front of the judges in the next round and get our pitch out, while becoming a part of a guinness world record which is pretty cool!
Getting to the next round is decided by public vote so if you haven’t already voted please do and get your friends and family to do the same, don’t worry all voters will be rewarded with alcoholic beverages so make sure to hit us up next time you see us in the pub! (We have a list so don’t chance your arm!!)
