- Zencash helps small businesses get paid. The online service automates the entire accounts receivable process—from the day you send an invoice to the day you get paid. You can automate invoice reminders such as printed invoices and phone calls, as well as send personalized thank you notes. You can also send default accounts to collections straight from the application.
- Explorence's platform lies at the intersection of Nintedo’s Wii, Foursquare and Legos. Our technology recruits phone sensors to immerse players in outdoor video games. Bike rides turn into Mario Kart and city walks become The Amazing Race. Players create their own experiences and compete against friends asynchronously. Explorence augments the experience with music, checkpoints, rewards and fail conditions to immerse the user in the outdoor video game.
- Citybot is your own personal travel guide, designed to ease the lives of travellers everywhere. It generates custom, personalized itineraries for you, based on your preferences and desires.
