GoWalkies launches blockchain technology funding round

GoWalkies now plans to raise £500,000 to invest in both back-end and customer-facing innovations to ‘improve user experience and solidify GoWalkies’ advancing position in the pet-technology sector both UK and worldwide’

GoWalkies, the dog walking app, has launched its first funding round to advance its use of blockchain technology and help “drive its ambitious growth plans”.

Launched in BETA phase in June 2021, GoWalkies has been developed with an intuitive interface that connects dog walkers with dog owners – which aims to “provide the opportunity for walkers to grow their business, whilst giving owners complete peace of mind over the care of their four-legged friends”.

GoWalkies now plans to raise £500,000 to invest in both back-end and customer-facing innovations to “improve user experience and solidify GoWalkies’ advancing position in the pet-technology sector both UK and worldwide”. This includes the development and implementation of advanced blockchain technology for the provision of smart contracts.

Sonny D’Avola, founder of GoWalkies, said: “In developing the concept for GoWalkies, I wanted to become the first and only dog walking app that not only enables dog walkers to easily build their own business, but also assures pet safety through unique features like real-time tracking.

“To take this one step further, I am now in the process of developing and implementing blockchain technology that will take the GoWalkies app to the next level through the provision of smart contracts – which will enable us to quickly drive both national and international growth.”

He added: “I am, therefore, incredibly excited to be launching our first funding round and am looking forward to developing new relationships with investors united with our vision to completely dominate the global dog walking market. I believe this is an incredible opportunity for potential investors to get in early in the next tech unicorn, potentially yielding massive returns.”
