Blind helps you to go anonymous in your community!

Find all Silicon Valley Gossips on the go

Our phones scream for space due to unlimited apps, don’t you agree? Almost everyone has installed Google, Maps, WhatsApp, Slack, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and what else not. We get to know latest world happening with help of them but what if you want to know what is going on with these tech giants. You can know through by scrolling and browsing latest new sites but if you want the inside news there is even an app for it.

Blind, the app was launched in United States in 2015 but initially was started a year before in South Korea. The app shows latest buzz about what those techies are interested in at the moment. There is exclusive channel for Uber employees to view about their workplace sexism, they also have “Tech Lounge” where one can see poll on Snapchat’s upcoming IPO.

If you want to know the numbers, stocks, shares or funding then ask any investor or Wall Street guy but if you want insight on Silicon Valley ‘s engineers, the sales people, the marketers, the product managers and their views about current issue then Blind is right app for it. Sounds interesting? Right!

Although, there is catch.

Any common person can’t get into the Blind community so easily. It’s a private community and anyone who wishes to join need to be an employee of selected tech company. Employees of tech giant companies who have more than 100 employees (that includes Microsoft, Amazon, Uber, Facebook, Google and LinkedIn) can only join the app.

If you are trying to make a fake profile don’t even think, you particularly need your office mail Id and its need to be verified. Even after so much verification process the user’s privacy is anonymous to the community as well as to app’s creators with their patent technology.

It recently had its Series A venture capital funding round and the participants where DCM. Moreover it wants to expand its team in San Francisco from 4 to 10 employees and looking for another funding round.
