Feelit is a social app that allows users to share their feelings and express themselves. Founded by Mohammad AlQadi, Dima AlOthaimeen, AlBara’ Hakami and Omar AlEisa in September 2013, the app displays trending feelings from users, whether it’s happy, sad, excited, bored or in love, and displays them in colorful bubbles. The Feelit community can work together to grow and shrink these feelings by embracing them, squashing them, exchanging virtual hugs on posts and spreading positive feelings to its users.
Feelit provides a sincere way to communicate with loved ones, and has already found success in Saudi Arabia. In 2013, it won the ArabNet Startup Demo in Riyadh, and the app is now prepping to go to the biggest tech conference in Europe: Web Summit 2014, in Dublin, Ireland from 4 to 6 November. The Feelit team has the chance to showcase their startup on a world stage, where more than 20,000 attendees, 800 investors and high profile speakers (including top executives from Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter) are expected to be in attendance, and perhaps spread more positive feels across the entire globe.
