Forgive my delay.  Lots happening the last few months….all good stuff! I had a major “pivot” in the fall…Fortesphere went on hold and Flysocially became the lead startup in our portfolio. What is Flysocially?  Glad you asked…

Flysocially is all your favorite social apps + a personal travel assistant in one! Flysocially is a social travel app to find things to do at the airport like instant deals, new product launches, happy hours & more.

Travelers are spending A LOT of money in airports these days….yet while airports are trying to bring innovation, the travel experience still feels like a chore.Whether you’re a business traveler, a tourist, a parent, or just a plain bored frustrated human, Flysocially will allow you to customize your preferences to uncover exciting options at the airport to not only pass the time, but look forward to it! FlysociallyImage is the ONLY airport specific social networking app; the others focus is navigation & logistics.

Flysocially was accepted into the Venture Hive Accelerator program (Launch Pad Tech) in Miami, through April 2013.  We have a great team in place on the development side and the business side.  We are in full hypotheses-experiment-learn-build mode:) Check out our landing page at and let’s stay in touch on Facebook and Twitter. We hope to have more news to share soon!
