Charles Zhang, Founder
checkya! is a simple tool for anyone to sell physical products, digital goods, or collect donations for a cause. It is unique that it connects creators, buyer, and sellers together in a network. You can follow people and endorse products that you like. When a person endorses your product, people that visits her profile will not only see the product she is selling but also your product that she endorsed. We are essentially putting a record of a word of mouth online. For musicians and video producers, we offer a enticing way for vistors to preview their music & videos and also a secure download after a customer buys their goods. The site is launching next week but you are welcome to try it out on the staging site.

Fred Dewey, CEO
Kachingle is a "Turbocharged App Monetization Platform". App vendors today need an ongoing source of revenue because for most app and service providers, advertising, download fees and the Freemium model are just not producing enough revenue on which to build a profitable/sustainable business model. And with the explosion in the number of apps, app discoverability has become a big problem. Kachingle is meeting this critical need by providing bundle marketing for pc/web & mobile apps, giving users a compelling reason to start paying, and app vendors a 2x-5x revenue uplift. One of our early partners Avira (Freemium anti-virus/security) is bringing their 105 million users to the table. With Kachingle, app vendors and users can build their own bundles, allowing users to maximize value and app vendors to maximize ongoing revenue. // @Kachingle

Brennan Loh, Head of Business Development
Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows individuals and businesses to create awesome online stores. Shopify currently hosts more than 30,000 active online retailers, including: Gatorade, Amnesty International, General Electric, Tesla Motors, LMFAO, Foo Fighters, Encyclopædia Britannica, DODOcase, Penny Arcade, CrossFit, GitHub, Evernote, and Epic Meal Time. // @shopify
