GoCape is also of interest to investors with goodwill and financial muscle to design, develop and scale it to the next level.
Haastrup-Timmi wrote in a forum on SiliconCape Initiative, ” After all, 3 million people live in and around Cape Town and lots of global interest in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Traffic is about 1500 uniques a day with about 6 page views per visit and an awesome bounce rate of 10%. I was shocked when I saw that bounce rate on Alexa today…whoa!! This plain vanilla site was organically created back in web 1.0 and we did lots of self-catering cape town accommodation bookings until I focused on other ventures. Booking requests still come in occasionally.”
He added, “I’d love to re-invent or pivot Gocape into a Native Advertising Social web 3.0 platform, using Saas, but no time as I have several global projects on the go. Think Buzzfeed.com as an example. Heads up my inbox if you can help. Asking circa $75k to make it worthwhile and will pay a generous commission.”
