Four Early-Stage Companies to Take Center Stage at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Miami on January 31
NORWALK, CT. - January 28, 2013 - TMC and EMBRASE Business Consulting announced the four technology startup companies that will be competing in StartupCamp7: Comms Edition
, being held on Thursday, January 31 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida. The competition is collocated with ITEXPO Miami 2013
, the world's largest and best-attended communications and technology trade show, held January 30 - February 1, 2013.
StartupCamp is a unique forum for early-stage entrepreneurs to pitch their communications offerings to a discriminating audience of industry influencers, media, potential investors and customers who gather for an evening of rich networking.
This year's startups include:
Flowthru extends voice services to anywhere. By plugging into service providers' existing infrastructure, with near-zero impact, Flowthru enables voice services to be presented where it matters most to users: on smartphones, tablets and PCs.
Proteg-GO's 'Guardian on the Go' app keeps you and loved ones safe and informed during an emergency, via its one-touch alert system, call center and social media components that together serve as a compliment to traditional 911 services.
ThruView reduces truck-rolls and makes customer care agents more effective for large providers of services to the home. Its mobile applications stream video from smartphones directly to the customer agent, offering the visual context agents require to deliver more efficient customer service.
delivers real-time access to human translators to make sure that nothing is ever lost in translation. We empower businesses and travelers with the ability to instantly connect with a live translator any time of day, anywhere in the world and from any device or application.
The evening will kick off with an intimate networking event sponsored by Momentum, connecting early-stage startups with potential collaborators, investors and clients. Following the networking event, John Sculley, former president of Pepsi Co. and CEO at Apple (News
), will address the audience for a keynote address challenging businesses to take more calculated risks. StartupCamp7 participants will then take the stage for their high-level five-minute 'ready-set-pitch' presentations.
Participating companies in this year's program will be judged by a panel of esteemed judges, including:
Craig Walker, CEO, Firespotter Labs
Jeff Uphues, Vice President, Cbeyond (News
Gerry Dehaven, Senior Partner, QAdvisors
