MyRound is an innovative app enabling users to buy and/or receive a drinks round via a digital drink token

127605824_828835514562102_6652114098442449403_oA new app created to help people buy a drink for someone remotely has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help accelerate the development and scale of the service.

Developed by eDrinks as part of their group of consumer apps reimagining social drinking, MyRound is a free and easy to use mobile app for buying and receiving a drinks round from friends, family, work colleagues or even a stranger.

eDrink vouchers are already redeemable in thousands of pubs, bars and venues across the country but they have plans to scale up as they aim to help the sector get back on its feet after a devastating year.

‘We’re on a mission to help the hospitality industry harness the power of tech and social media,’ explains founder Moshe David.

‘We are now Crowdfunding, to enable us to roll out our 2.0 app which will feature some brilliant new features and make the platform more socially interactive making easier for users to know when it is friends’ birthdays or anniversaries so you can simply tap to buy them a drink and help our pubs and bars at the same time.’

‘This is a chance for pub fans to buy shares in eDrinks for the price of a couple of pints whilst playing their part in our startup mission to support our hospitality industry coming out of lockdown.’

“The hospitality industry has been waiting for an app like this, drinks have always been like currency between friends, how many times have you said 'I owe you one'?... eDrinks allows you to uphold that and pay it forward. I see the myRound app being instrumental in the post Covid regeneration of our industry. Brilliant stuff.’

With over 2000 users already, a major partnership announced with Greene King's network of 1700+ pubs across the country and dozens of independent pubs, eDrinks is now raising £100,000 to fund marketing campaigns, app development and hiring.

Joining the board at eDrinks is David Wilson, a very familiar name in the hospitality, beer and pub sector as a consultant to the WSTA and until very recently the director of Public Affairs at the British Beer and Pub Association.

‘I am delighted to join the Board and support the development of eDrinks. Since Moshe introduced me to the concept in 2018 I have been enthusiastic about its potential and I am pleased to be coming on board at this exciting stage of the eDrinks business.‘
