Online reputation management tool Reputami is the latest startup accepted to Deutsche Telekom's incubator hub:raum. This is the fourth team to join the programme in Berlin, which is already supporting Blinkist, Stylemarks and Salonmeister.
Founded in Cologne last year by Ali Saffari and Oliver Twardowski, Reputami monitors online customer feedback in real-time and provides actionable recommendations for local businesses on how to improve their reputation online.
The startup, which provides a similar service to Crocovision and Toolboks, is focusing on the German market for now, but is likely to go international: "We want to redefine how businesses deal with their customers in the age of social media and location-based services, in addition to improving the service quality of local enterprises," said co-founders Saffari and Twardowski.
Hub:raum, launched in 2012, aims to support startups in the telecommunications, internet and digital media space. The incubator promises mentorship, access to the Deutsche Telekom network, workspace and seed financing of up to €300,000. There is also an eight-week accelerator programme offered.
