Boston New Technology Startup Showcase 103: Hult International Business School in Cambridge, MA
Boston New Technology’s July startup showcase featured six Mobile App startups.
As always at a Boston New Tech startup showcase, the evening began with an hour of food and networking before the beginning of the presentations. First, each of the sponsors in attendance is given a few minutes to introduce themselves; then the remaining sponsors are recognized while their slide is shown on the screen. Sponsors who attended BNT101 and introduced themselves were Hult, The Boston Headshot, Your Profile Video, Chuck Goldstone Strategies and Stories, IntroVoke, Stripes, and Tom Maloney Coach. After that, the showcasing startups present.
Below I introduce the presenting companies briefly with a paragraph each. These write-ups are based on material distributed before and during the event, sometimes expanded upon with information contained in the presentations. Of course, my notes are merely high-level. To get the straight skinny on any of the companies, please click through on the links, and contact the companies directly for additional information.
Products & Presenters
Finalee is an app offering a faster and more accurate local search, helping users find what’s nearby more quickly than Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor, or other services.
Market 2day‘s slogan is “Local Food for Busy People.” Via the Market 2day e-commerce app, consumers can purchase food from local food vendors, for delivery from local farmers markets. Essentially Market 2day is a “taxi service” for food. During its presentation, the company touted early repeat customer usage, noting that, since launching five weeks ago, almost every person who placed an order has ordered more than once.
JumpR is a mobile ticketing app for bars and nightclubs that allows consumers to pay cover fees via the app and “skip the line.”
LetsAllBeHeard is an app geared toward political campaigns, PACs, unions, and similar orgaizations that enables them to communicate with their members and supporters on their smartphones.
hollarhype offers a way for supporters and friends to help motivate runners in real-time via voice messages. Whether checking statuses, supplying real-time motivational messages, or connecting for fundraising – during its presentation, hollarhype noted that up to 75% of marathon and half-marathon runners are raising money for charity! – this app takes support for runners to the next level.
TallyLab is a data capturing and analytical app that contains big data analytical tools while focusing on privacy first. As someone who works with big data, out of all of the evening’s presentations, this is the one app that had me most imagining the sorts of problems I might solve with it.
The collection of presenters this month was interesting, and the solutions were varied. If one of the above products sounds interesting, please do your own additional research; my brief paragraphs were meant merely as introductions.
