The Dinamundo Mission
We use comedy to encourage people to get together and share a laugh face to face.
Our first product is an iOS app, also called Dinamundo, launching in June 2012. The basic idea is that friends use a QR code and scanner in the app to unlock funny fortune cookies, to share a laugh. We are excited to be building a social networking app for sharing comedy in all forms, and have started with the fortune cookie as something universally appealing as we build a user base.
Founded by Erik Blachford, who started in marketing and ended up CEO at Expedia and is now an active San Francisco early stage investor, as well as the marketing lead at Dinamundo. Our 5 person team also includes 2 engineers, a product manager, and a part-time office manager.
Life at Dinamundo
We work in an open plan office in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood, near First and Howard, on the top floor of a five story building, with a killer outdoor conference table, kitchen, foosball table, and Thunderbolt displays.
