CAPZA Growth Tech acquires a majority stake in Web Geo Services to make it a leading international player in geolocation intelligence


'PR email?'

Yeah, yeah.

Anyway ...

PARIS, JUNE 30th, 2021

CAPZA[1], an independent management company and leading player in private investments in European SMEs - invests in Web Geo Services, a French API[2] platform publisher and Google Maps' #1 partner operating in the booming "Location Based Services (LBS)" market.

Er ...

Founded in 2009, Web Geo Services has built its reputation by becoming the Google Maps #1 Partner and reseller of Google Maps Platform in Europe. The company focuses on 5 sectors: Retail, Finance, e-business, Smart Mobility, and Travel & Hospitality.

Er ...

Web Geo Services has also developed its own proprietary platform, "Woosmap", a set of independent APIs dedicated to B2B2C business use cases: store locator, geofencing, data search, payment transaction cleaning, etc.

Something to do with maps, and locations, on the internet.

Oh, for crying out loud! I don't know.

'Boss! We're not getting anywhere with this. Let's see if we can get some sense out of the voices.'

Oh, okay ...

By the way, I don't like people using my numbers for non-conceptual stuff. Just saying.

"We have built a solid & trustworthy relationship with Mathias & Jean-Thomas and share a common vision of the roadmap. Web Geo Services shows great potential thanks to its solid positioning on the booming market of geolocation intelligence and a very high level of customer satisfaction" - Raphael Horreard, Partner, CAPZA Growth Tech.

Okay, okay. I don't know what this is all about, BUT(!) ... I like the one voice, you dig? 'Yeah.' One voice can be comforting. But two voices speaking together like those girls in The Shining scares the shit out of me. I'm sorry, Mathias and Jean-Thomas, I'm just being honest.

Anyway ...

"Location intelligence is increasingly recognized as a key digital tool for the physical and online assets of companies. Technology is evolving fast, enabling to constantly offer new productive location-based services. We have chosen CAPZA Growth Tech for their ability to support us as a real partner, and to accompany the step-up of our technological edge as well as the success of our international expansion." - Mathias Fliti and Jean-Thomas Rouzin, founders, Web Geo Services.

Oh dear.

'David, Ludovic, and Yvan-Michel are at it, too, boss.' WHAT?! Three of them?!

"We have supported Web Geo Services since 2012 and we are very pleased to have accompanied them during this key development milestone. The company has a solid market positioning, and we are happy that CAPZA & IRDI are taking the lead to support the management team in their exciting roadmap to become a leader in location intelligence" - David Manjarres and Ludovic Denis, Partners, Seventure Partners, Yvan-Michel Ehkirch, Managing Partner, Karista.

Shivers down my spine, basically.

Please! No more PR emails with voices like this!





ENDS keep coming.

I don't know.

Who cares?

I want a voice! To say a few words. Before I go. Until I come back.

'One day, you'll be gone for good. One day, there will be no more ENDS.'

And where will you be, Voice?

'I might stay here. I might write some stuff.'
