Founders Amber Case and Aaron Parecki (pictured at left, from the magazine's April 2011 issue) are 24 and 26 respectively, brimming with youthful geeky exuberance. In addition to the $25,000 from the seed fund, Geoloqi has also received $300,000 from members of TIE Oregon including Raj Kulkarni, Nitin Khanna and Eric Doebele. TIE stands for The Indus Entrepreneurs, a global nonprofit for entrepreneurship.
