AVUXI Is Growing Up – Our New Investors


Here at AVUXI we’ve been focused for the last 2 years on building a complex platform named TopPlace™, that offers unique location insights with worldwide coverage. Our goal is to provide a quick and easy understanding of the social relevance of any location on the planet.

One of our most internationally known clients is KAYAK, successfully using several of our products. Here’s one of our products – area Popularity Heat Maps:

So far we have operated in a “below the radar” mode. Not many people have heard about us. However, as a company we’ve recently arrived at the point where we are ready to scale up.

We are delighted to announce that as of this week we have new investors who will also be joining our team as pro-active, “hands on” advisors.

Ed Freyfogle was previously founder of Lokku (Nestoria) – a real estate metasearch with a strong focus on geolocation, which was acquired in 2015 by Mitula Group. He runs #geomob, the main location based services meet-up in London.
