TMC (News - Alert) and Embrase Business Consulting, a strategy consulting firm to next-generation communications providers, have announced the group of four early-stage companies presenting at StartupCamp6: Comms Edition, taking place at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Austin 2012 from Oct. 2-5.
This is the sixth edition of StartupCamp, an entrepreneur pitch event. It’s the forum where early stage companies, investors and on-lookers alike can share information and validate pitches live. Companies have five minutes (and no more) to pitch their innovations to an audience of industry leaders, media, investors and judging panel.
Phonism, RingDNA, Vsnap and Zello have been selected as the four companies to present at StartupCamp6 Comms Edition next week. Phonism is a cloud-based VoIP phone management system service that goes beyond traditional provisioning systems, transforming the complexities of provisioning into a simple task that anyone can perform in minutes.
RingDNA is a voice communications company attempting to revolutionize business telephony. Unlike traditional analog call solutions, RingDNA uses Web-based telephony to deliver real-time CRM data, social media streams and behavioral marketing information to the right person at the right time with virtually no IT infrastructure requirements.
Vsnap offers a more personal alternative to e-mail. Customers and prospects take action about 40 percent more when reached via Vsnap as compared to via e-mail because a Vsnap captures tone, emotion, enthusiasm and authenticity in a way that actually translates, which text and e-mail can't do at all.
Zello is a social radio for consumers, like voice twitter. People communicate most naturally by talking and listening, not by typing and reading. Millions of consumers use Zello instead of traditional radio to participate or just listen in to public conversations, to stay connected with a group of friends, or simply out of boredom. For business, teams use Zello to replace two-way radio or push-to-talk.
"Every year, selecting startups is the hardest job," said Larry Lisser (News - Alert), a partner in Embrase Business Consulting and co-founder of StartupCamp. "This foursome is so dynamic and diverse in their product and marketing strategies. These entrepreneurs are sure to have the audience's attention from their ability at tackling big problems ranging from back-end provisioning to end-user engagement."
The event kicks off at 4 p.m. on Oct. 4 with a cocktail and networking reception party followed by a keynote by Michael Tessler, co-founder, president and CEO of BroadSoft (News - Alert).
