Features of 99Launch.es

  1. Gamification via BigDoor Gaming Platform:  At 99Launch.es you will rack up points just for checking in and social sharing your new startup discoveries. We want you to engage in some healthy competition and have good ol' fashioned fun while sharing our site with others.
  2. Gaming Rewards via Hello Bar: When you reach our site, our Hello Bar alerts you about the current week's reward for top point-getters! 99Launch.es has partnered with more than two dozen partners to bring you special web offers (like those seen on AppSumo.com and Startups.com) that are free or deeply discounted. Winners will be announched live weekly during our Vokle.com show.
  3. Live Chat via SnapEngage: Although this live chat feature is primarily used for web services, we understand that the average non-techie may not be familiar with a curated review of up-to-date internet startups, which is why it is our goal to reach out to those visitors just before they leave and help them understand “what the heck this is.”
