Startup Yard, based in Prague, Czech Republic has received 54 applications, and selected nine startups for its 2012 6-month acceleration programe, which will start on the 1st of May. The whole Startup Yard “batch” together with Ondrej Bartos of Credo Ventures are coming to the Next Web so I look forward to meeting them in Amsterdam this week. Until then, here is a list, and my typical doze of skepticism.
ActivePeople.do (stealth) is an application for managing time, tasks, finance, and communication. A cross between Moneyzoom / Zenmoney, Yaware and … Path? We shall see.
iMenu offers Interactive menus for touch devices and smartphones, suitable for restaurants, coffees, bars, hotels and more. This will require a large marketing budget.
Limatte enables to start on-line communication with a customer in the moment his/her leaving the web. Let’s see what Limatte comes up with.
NYO.is moves your business into the cloud. It is a smart web / mobile application simplifying small business accounting and workflow. This is a hot area, and InFakt.pl is not planning expansion outside of Poland yet. There are two online acconting startups in Ukraine catering to freelancers.
Pizzatime offers all food delivery to your address via web or smartphone, easily to order on-line. Credo Ventures should prepare a nice big wallet for this one. Selling an app to both small businesses and end users will require quite a bit of capital.
Lingv.us is an online translation market. Allows us to quickly and professionally handle translations between any languages. Crowdsourced translation? Mechanical Turk? Duolingo? Smartling? Or even Babelverse? The startup is in stealth.
SpaceTeacher is is a social network for people learning or teaching foreign languages. Students learn faster thanks to high engagement. Too bad there is no indication on the website that it might be a new spin on online dating. Would be cool.
TabFoundry is a tool for managing social networks. Social networks are out of control, it’s true. I use Buffer to keep sanity.
