Promoting in Washington Square park this week was Roomi. This app had it right approaching young people in the park with Frisbees. Couldn’t help feeling a bit left out, but recognize a mom like me isn’t in the target. I’m really bad at Frisbee too.
With $2 million in funding this company targets New Yorkers seeking compatible roommates. It launched as the first mobile-only service of its kind. There are over 3,000 rooms available and Roomi verifies users through Facebook.
