NuPal is a social-local-mobile application that allows users to connect with and discover the world around them. Simply put, NuPal immediately makes you a local wherever you go. Born as a result of the many shortcomings of traditional social media, NuPal finally delivers a true local discovery platform-- blending together all aspects of a modern community (the people and the places). The app leverages GPS technology to accurately bring users together in a fun, innovative way. Users are then able to connect and start a dialogue, grab coffee, network, date, or indulge in any form of social interaction! The app also enables users to discover the many local businesses around them, and access daily deals that the businesses promote exclusively through NuPal. Businesses directly benefit by having the ability to send targeted deals to relevant consumers in the area, ensuring that their marketing efforts are fully streamlined and consumers find products or services that interest them at a discounted rate.
