25 Oct In the News: WebFWD Global Accelerator Fusion
Continuing the entrepreneurial theme this month, Kirk and I attended the WebFWD Global Accelerator Fusion event with accelerator partners Metavallon (Greece) and Rockstart (Holland). Near the end of this event, an entrepreneur with no affiliation to any of the accelerators showed up and passed around these “relaxation glasses.” I don’t know if I was any more relaxed, but I certainly look cool. No? Uh, no.
And speaking of successful entrepreneurs, InfoWorld named WebFWD alum Big Blue Button as one of the best open source applications for 2013. Wowza. Congratulations!
Congratulations also to our client ReTargeter (http://jenniferselbylong.com/?p=668) who was recently recognized by the Empact Showcase. Now in its third year, the Empact Showcase recognized Arjun Dev Arora, CEO and Founder, as being among the United States’ “Best Companies Started & Run by Young Entrepreneurs”.
In 2012, the companies comprising the Empact Showcase contributed more than 8,500 jobs to the economy, and controlled over $1.3 billion in revenue. Founders in the Empact Showcase will be recognized for their achievements at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in October.
