Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin. John Popel joined me to tell me about his new app, Chummy, that helps you ask for help when you need it and give help when you can. It is available both in app store for IOS devices and in Google Play for Android devices. Interview with John Popel, the Head of Growth of Chummy. The following is the pre-interview with John Popel. Be sure to watch the recorded interview above. What is the problem you solve and how do you solve it? In fact, Chummy serves to solve a set of personal social problems: 1. In modern cities, people face daily problems alone. Gone are the days when people borrowed a cup of sugar from the neighbor or shared a cold beer with a thirsty stranger. 2. 6/10 Americans gravitate toward paying it forward and helping like-minded people. The issue is there’s been no way to identify the kind, like-minded fellows in the city. There’s been no safe and fun tool for engaging in daily random acts of kindness. 3. Even having hundreds of virtual “friends,” people feel the lack of real chums who matter and on whom they can rely. The “friends” we make online nowadays are often inauthentic and have no value in real life.
