“We steal data from your phone and sell it.” That is the value proposition of Vooza, the most unbelievable startup ever. Not only they have great products themselves, they also keep inspiring others and create visionary concepts like radimparency.

They believe in the power of iteration. In fact, they originally started as Stumble Monkey, which was like Airbnb but for online dating. The idea was that when you leave town, you can rent out your partner. Unfortunately, that turned out to be illegal. So they had to pivot.
