To acknowledge some of our most innovative companies at the 12th Founder Showcase, we’ve partnered with CloudSigma, (an innovative Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider that offers flexible cloud servers and cloud hosting in both Europe and the US) to honor the Start-up companies whose solutions embrace the most innovative and revolutionary ideas presented at the event. This Showcase featured some of the most impressive companies yet, hence making for a difficult decision. As a result, the finalists for the Demo Table and Crowd Pitch Competitions have all earned 6 months of UNLIMITED IaaS capacity by CloudSigma.
After taking a close look at each of the finalists, we in CloudSigma consider that each one of them has a promising innovative idea that we believe will result in a successful business. This is why we will help all of them - ZenCash, Explorence, Citybot, Jobfig - to develop further and grow their business on our public cloud platform.
These four companies will be using CloudSigma for months and years to come. Congratulations to the finalists and a big Thank You to CloudSigma for their support at the 12th Founder Showcase.
- 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. In other words, it helps you plan your day, no matter where you are using artificial intelligence algorithms.
- JobFig utilizes the Five Factor Model of Personality to match potential employess with employers when hiring.
