SCUBA diving website successfully raises first round of seed funding
DiveReport.com has completed it’s first round of funding that coincided with it’s Beta Launch at the beginning of the month.
“It has always been difficult to find out the best time of year to see your favorite animals – my aim is to create a resource that makes this really, really easy” Catherine Jones, Dive Report’s Managing Director explains.
Dive Report has, over a very short period, gained almost 1000 twitter followers and, just a month after beta launch, the site has seen a steady increase in traffic.
The other aspect is the ‘reporting’
The website, even now with only 50 key locations and 20 key marine animals already has around 3,500 individually research data points “This project is huge deal, I knew this when I started, and by the time we fully launch I expect to have at least 30 animals documented for over 100 main dive locations” Catherine explains, also pointing out that until the ‘full-launch’
“I am not afraid to work hard – which is just as well!” she notes.
