MeLoveRadio, founded by Reinier Hamstra and Maarten Rein, is a controversial startup. The startup is called a hybrid between broadcast and streaming radio. Even a missing link: with one click you can add music you heard on radio stations to your personal YouTube or Spotify feed. The company says it doesn't have to pay any digital rights, because they 'just connect'. Not everyone agrees though. It sure is pushing boundaries – we love that.
Need a new roomie? With Roomeasy, the 'Tinder for roommates'. Obviously, it is aimed at students looking for a room in a student house. No more need to type long applications, or no longer reading them. It's simplifying the search on both sides for sure. Just swipe!
Also a startup that loves swiping, is Swibblr. It lets you swipe to create a new outfit. This fashion app was founded by Vagner da Graca and Michel Frissen.
Vincent van Leeuwen (SNTMNT), Radboud Rijpkema and Laurens van Leeuwen launched a new box subscription startup: WineClub. With the box people can host their very own wine tasting party at home. Cheers!
Paying your friends with just a click on a link, it certainly has been done before. Florin, co-founded by Bas de Vries (20), is the latest addition to the Dutch fintech landscape. It already has some traction with students from Amsterdam and Utrecht. Noteworthy: De Vries quit his study to fully focus on Florin.
