New York Start Up: Stamped Let’s You Put Your Stamp Of Approval On Things

Review sites like Yelp are great. The problem is  when you’re looking for something in a hurry the last thing you want to do is read a 2500 word review on something. You want the meat and potatoes now and that’s what Stamped specializes in.

Stamped launched in November and was born in New York. Founders Robby Stein and Bart Stein previously worked for Google. The third co-founder, Kevin Palms worked with risk analytics at a New York hedge fund. They’ve already secured $1.5 million in seed funding from Bain Capital Ventures and Google Ventures.

The app is pretty simple. Users can “stamp” things that they really love. As the company suggest, they want their users to only “stamp” things that they would recommend to their best friends. Users can stamp places, books, movies and music. They can add text reviews, but those are limited to a few sentences. Overall the app is designed to give you a quick, concise recommendation platform.

The Stamped platform takes all the clutter out of the traditional review site. Either you like something or you don’t, it’s that simple. Users can pick from those few categories and there are different colors for your stamps.

Stamped’s advisers include the $400 million dollar man, Instagram founder Kevin Systrom as well as chef and food personality Mario Batali.

While daily deals apps and social discovery apps seem to be extremely hot right now, we’re continually hearing about great recommendation apps and this seems to be one of them.

Stamped is currently available for iOS with an Android app expected soon. Find out more about Stamped here.
