Drively: ( A simple snapshot of your driving.

US drivers spend about 1 hour daily on the road, but there is very little actionable information. Fleet management systems are already using statistical information to improve vehicle usability, maintenance and driver safety. Consumers should have easy and affordable access to this information as well.

Our application is based on a cheep OBD device that could be purchased today for ~$10. The device plugs into any car made since 1996. This device together with a cell phone becomes a powerful cloud enabled analytics tool. Our android application is available through Google Play store with >1000 downloads and >50000 total miles driven by users.

Presented by Danny Espinoza, Founder and CEO at Blush Messenger

In 2003 I started my own consulting business, Mesa Dynamics, which led to an asset acquisition where I met my business partner. He and I started three startups: Quece (patent portfolio acquired by Intellectual Ventures in 2007), Lumifi (SaaS document analysis company shuttered in 2008) and CardStar (acquired by Constant Contact in 2012), a mobile application for managing customer loyalty.

I was awarded a U.S. patent for technology created at CardStar (8,468,054).

Bibs ( bibs is a platform for modernizing running events.

Bibs is creating a platform that unites runners and event directors. We have a registration system that allows runners to sign up for events and handles the transaction and ties directly into event management software. We also have an easy to use hardware platform that times runners at the day of the event and a fraction of the price event directors are used to paying. This plugs directly into the app, which allows runners to view and share their results in addition to discovering new events. Bibs received an angel investment from two respected event directors and timers in the running industry at the beginning of the year.

Presented by Galen, CTO of Bibs.

Galen has an educational background in Computational Physics and experience in numerical computing/algorithm design. He worked at multiple gambling software companies and a wearables company building a fitness tracker, then moved to help founding bibs.

GEO ( A mobile app that allows you to share information as you walk by people.

We are a mobile app that will allow people to walk by one another and share information. After people receive information, they can than share it with others as they walk by one another. Consider us like a Twitter with feet. We plan to change the information age forever, and our unique server design that monitors people's location so they can constantly share information while moving will revamp digital content sharing forever. Imagine a college kid throwing a party? He can share his thought out and others can share it, and therefore his thought could go viral as people move around.

Presented by Alden Morri

My name is Alden Morris, I am an inventor and entrepreneur. We are building a mobile app that allows users to walk past one another and share ideas, events, photos, music, and more. When one user receives a thought, another user can share their thought as they walk around.

Here is our pitch video:

PlayWith: ( Über for sports and games.

A modern, easy to use, convenient and mobile first solution to help people engage in sports and games.

Social networks only claim that they are building communities whereas often they are just helping people spend even more time staring at a screen in isolation.
Existing fitness oriented social networks never suggest calling a friend to go for a run. Rather, they encourage going by yourself and then telling all your friends all about it on Facebook.
Online multiplayer is great and everything, but there’s nothing quite like gaming together with friends who are there with you in person, or competing in front of a cheering crowd. Think back to those games you played at the arcade, or on the playground, or on your friend’s couch.
PlayWith, an app that helps friends and strangers get together to play the games they love. Using the PlayWith app, people can find a game to play, right now or later. Anything from a game of soccer to a tennis match, on the pitch or on the couch.
PlayWith uses geofencing and machine learning to algorithmically increase event fill-up rate, participation and reduce no-shows. PlayWith does away with the friend paradigm. Removes serendipity as a factor. Leverages player reviews, social connections and authentication to create a safe and curated experience.

Presented by Alex Malov, Founder at PlayWith

Formerly East Coast finance and then international logistics. Last few years CEO at a B2B SaaS company where besides running the company I got hooked on product design. B2B SaaS company was acquired and jumped in head first and started PlayWith. At first as a means to solve a pet peeve but it quickly evolved into something more.
