There is a geometrical beauty in the Bulgarian startup accelerator Eleven.bg’s choice to align the number of winning teams with its name. Eleven is a large number for Bulgarian startups to be accelerated, as Bulgaria has only recently been catapulted into the Internet startupshere with the EU money from Jeremie fund.
Earlier this month another Bulgarian accelerator Launchub has announced its teams, and today Eleven.bg published its own list of the selected startups.
The startup blogger’s life is about spending time writing about other people’s aspirations, 90 percent of which are then abandoned, as the success rate of high tech startups is notoriously low. In Eastern Europe where the challenges of building the global business are higher, the success rate is even lower (I know a number of companies that ceased to exist since we covered them here on GoalEurope). But I am optimistic today, so let me spend my time on reviewing how Eleven.bg has allocated EU government’s money. Hell, I am in such a good mood that I will even link the company names, that Eleven.bg blog entry did not bother with.
By the way, the teams do not appear to be willingly disclosing their roots but something tells me they come from Eastern Europe.
Eventyard, an event discovery platform streams personalized event recommendations, you just have to say what you are interested in. Lovely design, will go right into my “event starups” pile.
Farmhopping makes investing in sustainable farming easy, as the users are offered online platform for crop / cattle management and production utilization.
Filement is an online platform to store and manage data, and host websites. It is accessible on different devices. Nothing ground-breaking here. The platform is already translated to German.
Grabalanguage helps to learn foreign language through its media platform that utilizes the media resources such as YouTube, VImeo and blogs as well as crowd-sourced content.
KeenSkim automatically summarizes online articles by highlighting core content. Reminded me of a startup Summly, founded by a 16-year-old English entrepreneur (but then Summly is an app). We know that this one is a Romanian team.
La Koketa is a mobile app which helps women select what to wear and express their style. Basically, you photograph and tag your clothes based on the colors and a season. The app will then help you select combinations, based on your color picks, time of the year and what you wore a week ago. The beauty of the app is that it reminded you of “clothes” you forgot about, whilst giving new combination ideas. Not bad at all, but it would take forever to set it up.
MaistorPlus, like British MyBuilder helps find reliable professionals, such as an electrician or a plumber. It is currently in Buglarian.
Playground Energy plans to convert children’S playing energy at outdoor playgrounds into Wifi signal, light and other good uses. Don’t we all occasionally think about that? Watch this video to get an idea even though I don’t think it relates to this startup.
Sensika is a cloud-based information intelligence platform for corporations.
SoccerScout is a social network for professional football community.
Ulympix is a platform for global challenges (a very similar to Launchub’s picking of Deed). This one, like Deed does not appear to be online yet.
