3 questions for the startup “Huricat”
Hello Emmanuel, can you introduce us to “Hurricat”?
Huriqat is a wave of queues. For example, by consulting peak hours and off-peak hours at town hall counters or shops, you can avoid queues. Once there, you can inform the community about your expectations, this is the community aspect.
This also works for the memorial you’re visiting on vacation, to avoid having to “please call later, all of our advisors are busy” when calling your post office, Disneyland or your customer service.
How did the idea behind this project come about?
After a two-hour queue at the Palace of Versailles, I learned that a “mob board” existed at the official site. If I had known before leaving, I would have postponed my trip for a few hours and I wouldn’t have waited at all.
The idea was born: to bring all these traffic tables together in a single application, whether for tourist sites, administrative counters, shops or telephone customer services.
What are your startup innovations/news in the coming months?
After the launch of the beta in 2015 and the real one in France earlier this month, we will be opening the Hurricat beyond its borders. The application is already in 6 languages: this summer, we plan to launch Brazil, Russia and the United Kingdom.

It’s certainly a major competitor, but it’s also a great opportunity, especially when their initiative suffers. multiple limitsFirst, their estimates do not take into account the season at all.
We want this functionality to be what Waze is to Google Maps: a qualitative, real-time, community layer.
