Inveneo's mission is to get the tools of information communications technology (ICT), such as computers, telephony, and Internet access to those who need it most — people and organizations in rural and highly underserved communities of the developing world.
Traba gives job seekers an inside look into organizations, and then helps them to prepare themselves (eg, resume review, interview prep) to get the role. We have a 70% placement rate within 3 months of working with us - we're far more effective than people working on their own. Here's how we do it:
1:1 mentorship with people in the field
* People get jobs through other people, but a lot of job seekers don't have a large enough network to connect with, and get advice from, the right mentors.
* We have a network of 3rd party mentors (people in the same industry, field, etc) as those we're trying to help, and they give our users actionable advice on how to tell their story, get in the door, and manage their search.
Tactical, relevant content
* There's so much content on the internet, but very little of it is tactical enough to help.
* We provide content (blogs, podcasts, videos, interviews) tailored to specific roles, so that our users get exactly what they need to land the job.
Rollbar is a full-stack error monitoring platform. Developers use it to find, reproduce, and fix bugs many times faster than legacy solutions (like digging through log files or responding to customer support issues).
It works by integrating into each part of the application: client (iOS, Android, JS) and server (Ruby, Python, Node, PHP, many others). This gives us code-level visibility on errors that happen in production. When an error is detected, our libraries collect a wealth of data about the error (e.g. which lines of code) and its context (e.g. which user was affected), and report it to our API. Then we analyze, de-dupe, send alerts, and prepare the data for further analysis by the developer.
Large customers love us our ability to de-dupe millions of errors into root causes that they can search, sort, and prioritize. Teams of all sizes love being able to respond quickly to new bugs that appear in production, and rest easy knowing that when something breaks, Rollbar tells them.

Our last project Talkbox was a closed network (just like all other messaging apps - Slack, Whatsapp, etc) unable to connect with users outside of the the messenger. We wanted to build something different and open, so MailTime is a messaging service built on top of the open technology of email, that connects people and services.
The way people interact with emails today has changed dramatically, but the email experience has not. Users scroll through pages of copies, signatures, and metadata to find what they need. It’s all more reminiscent of the desktop paradigm more than the modern mobile world. People want what we’re making because many of them download it on the spot once we present it.
We are a proven team with prior success in a mobile messaging app of 13 million users, and we remain passionate about improving communication.

Glow, the app, is a better way to get pregnant by asking women to track their reproductive health. Glow’s data scientists crunch the data to better inform women of their fertility window. Glow’s personalized recommendations and statistics are based on users’ (and the anonymized crowd’s) data; the more data shared, the more helpful Glow becomes.
Glow First - an optional not- for-profit program to fund elective treatments. Glow First participants will contribute $50/month, for 10 months - the average amount of time it takes a woman to conceive. To offset the high cost of fertility treatments, the contribution pool is equally divided amongst participants who did not conceive after 10 months.
Glow takes nothing from the Glow First pool. Payment distribution is made directly to the fertility clinic of the user’s choice to pay for fertility treatments (cash is never exchanged).

Complement Labs is building a Medical Device that quantifies Traditional Pulse Diagnosis.
For hundreds of years, physicians have been using this technique to get insights about their patients' health and the afflicting ailments.

We have built a device that captures and quantifies the information from the pulses to make objective assessments. We have promising results in analyzing this data to detect certain ailments that currently require invasive methods of detection such as blood tests.

People drove the growth of the world’s largest social graph at Facebook. People created the world’s largest professional social network at LinkedIn. Data, not people, is driving the next wave of disruption in the areas of social and professional networking. We therefore adopted a data-driven strategy from day one.

Datahug manages millions of relationships every day. Our customer networks are built automatically using the real world connections hidden in existing email, phone, calendar, and contact data (Note – we never access any content).This allows our users to instantly understand ‘who knows who’, how well they know them, when they last spoke, and how the relationship is evolving over time.
For anyone who struggles with clicking through mediocre search results or managing multiple sites/apps when searching for information our website gathers, organizes, and extracts relevant information from around the web so that anyone can instantly find and explore the information they are looking for from a single page.

Big Data is not just big—it’s messy, complicated and coming at most businesses faster than they can rationalize, much less analyze. As a result, data professionals spend far more time wrangling and cleansing data than analyzing it. And business professionals are left on the outside looking in.
Trifacta provides a breakthrough user experience that makes data experts far more productive and allows business analysts to work directly with Big Data. This means faster time to analysis. And perhaps more significantly, it unlocks the potential of a wide variety of data that was previously left aside as being too hard to use. The result: better, faster, more informed business decisions.

Haptik experts are people who have worked with these companies before or have used their products extensively. Most of them are directly employed, while some work as crowd sourced volunteers. They have access to an internal knowledge base of thousands of frequently asked questions that have been compiled from the public domain.
80% of questions asked are resolved right then and there, 15% require experts to follow up with the respective companies, and 5% require the user to directly deal with the company. The average response per inbound message is about 4 minutes.
On the enterprise side, it is a SaaS platform that allows companies to plug in their own customer contact teams to directly chat with the customer.

In enterprises, shared information and knowledge across departments are not well captured, meaning huge costs in lost collaboration and innovation opportunities. Technology places collaboration in steroids, but finding an expert for your project is still a challenge. Subject matter experts are under tremendous pressure to engage & existing solutions do not solve the "Whom, What, When" issues in peer conversations. Expert's sessions cover same content and context many times leading in frustration, excessive costs in duplicating work, and repeated conversations.
ESN solutions are adding content, but create a huge cluttered mess yielding poor search results.
Acrossio is the answer!
1. We offer a unified solution to help companies Capture & Contextualize Exchanged Information over a unified real time collaboration toolset.
2. We provide On-Demand Contextual Knowledge Search giving the Who and What

Zenput allows enterprise to quickly collect and aggregate data through the use of forms on a native mobile app.
Companies use our product to get better accountability of their employees, vendors, and partners. As one of our customers recently said, "Zenput is our record of integrity."
We're giving companies a new data set they didn't have before. There simply wasn't an easy way to previously get analog data about their products or their people.
Currently being used by numerous large retail chains, CPGs, and dozens of others. (happy to disclose in private)
Most importantly we are becoming a system of record for Task data. In the same way that Workday ($13B mkt cap) became a system of record for HR data, Salesforce ($30B) for Sales data, Concur ($6B) for Expense data, and Splunk ($6b) for Log data...we will do for Task data.
Vouch is a mobile app that analyzes users' Facebook graph to connect them to all the singles on Facebook that they have common friends with. It also helps users that are already in relationships play matchmaker and anonymously match their single friends (we keep their identity a secret until they are ready to reveal themselves as the cupid). This eliminates the fear, from the matchmaker, of making a bad match and being blamed by their friends in the aftermath - allowing for all the benefits if the match works out, and none of the risks if it doesn't.
The entire system is built into a game that encourages users to re-engage on a daily basis - whether single and looking for a date, or in a relationship and just playing matchmaker; the average user from our beta launch checks back every other day.
We plan to eventually integrate the matchmaking into Facebook directly and award users scores for making successful matches, which they can then publish on their walls (free publicity).

Leanplum is the first mobile lifecycle marketing solution truly designed for marketers. We drive engagement and results with Personalized Messaging, User Experience Optimization, Marketing Automation and Mobile A/B Testing with Analytics. Top brands like Expedia, Hotwire, and Tesco leverage our solution to connect with users across the full customer journey.
Our founders Momchil and Andrew worked together at Google optimizing video ads. They ran hundreds of A/B tests but soon realized there was no good way to do that on mobile. Momchil and Andrew joined TechStars in 2012 and turned their passion for A/B testing into a SaaS company.
Last year Leanplum raised 4.8 million in Series A funding, led by Shasta Ventures, tripled its world-class team and opened a satellite office in Bulgaria! We’re growing even further and are looking for more incredible and passionate talent to join our family.
