To be completely honest, I am not sure why Aulery award ceremony for CEE tech startups had to take place in Sopot (near Gdansk) and coincide with The Next Web. As you might have learned from my post yesterday, many CEE startups were actually in Amsterdam last week, but Aulery nominees came mainly from Poland, so the location made sense for them after all.
Here are the winners.
Can’t Stop Games is social massively multiplayer online game developer. The company developed over 40 games across 14 platforms in 13 languages and has got 2 million users, and it reports revenue. In my humble opinion, already expressed on the pages of this blog, Eastern European founders of MMO companies have strong chances to innovate globally, whether in gaming space or not, as they acquire resources (cash), and knowledge about building international businesses.
Brand24 is a social media monitoring platform, which process social feed from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, blogs and other sources. The company launched in November 2011 and has already earned some revenue. The business appears to be focused on the Polish market, and sure enough there is a multitude of competitors globally.
UXPin helps UX designers communicate with other software developers by providing a set of prototyping tools. It offers prototyping kits for web and mobile design amongst others, so app sketches can be photographed and converted into digital wireframes. UXPin was founded in 2010, shows revenue and has Innovation Nest as its investor. sketch-to-app functionality is also offered by ScatchApp, another Polish startup.
Here is a list of all nominees:
