Company description

Sprokk is a micro-blog where users share thoughts and interact with others using their voice.

A “sprokk” is a short voice note created through the Sprokk iOS app or web interface. Our product encourages people to freely express themselves, embrace their individuality and memorialize their lives using their voice. Our mission is to disrupt the banality of traditional text and photo to create a world where users reach large constituencies with ease and authenticity. Sprokk is a megaphone to the world!

A market opportunity exists because text blogs limit the user’s ability to convey emotion. The recent proliferation of video microblogs demonstrates that the user is looking for an enhanced level of interactivity in the blogging space. The use cases of voice and video blogging, however, are inherently different: an audio note best captures short thoughts without the unwanted exposure of video.

Our interface is constructed around the core concept of simplicity of use and minimalist design.

- To create a Sprokk, users must record a voice note no longer than 17 seconds and include a subject
- Next, the user has the option to add a photo or hyperlink, tag friends and/or lock (restrict) the post
- Users interact with another Sprokk by replying, cataloguing, echoing, sharing and/or voting


Located in Hollywood, CA, Sprokk was internally funded in early 2012.
