Editor’s note: In this latest installment of the partnership between WRALTechWire and Exit Event, ExitEvent Editor Laura Baverman takes a look at the eight other startups who will be competing with Automated Insights and Windsor Circle next month in Google for Entrepreneurs’ first Demo Day.
DURHAM, N.C. - In case you missed the breaking news on TechWire Tuesday, Durham has two companies representing in Google for Entrepreneurs’ first Demo Day in Palo Alto next month.
Matt Williamson of Windsor Circle and Robbie Allen from Automated Insights will get an all-expense paid trip to Google headquarters to pitch alongside eight companies selected by Google’s six other tech hubs from across North America. Google is promising at least 100 investors in the audience.
So naturally, we’re wondering what our hometown boys are up against. Can they win the hearts of investors and Google? Who else is vying? I spent a couple hours this afternoon digging up as much as I could find about the other eight companies. Here’s the scoop:
Docalytics was born at a Minneapolis Startup Weekend in early 2012 as a way to help people find sales and marketing materials about a potential vendor without having to commit to the sales process. The tool collects data about the documents and the way they’re used, collecting potential sales leads and data about what content works and what doesn’t. The company completed the city’s gener8tor accelerator program and raised $319,000 from Confluence Capital late last year.
