UPDATED: my earlier headline appears to have upset my readers so I took it off. There was no intention to offend anyone living in the former Socialist bloc by using the Soviet + union. Meant as a joke, looks like it was a bad one. Just tells us how little many still know about the post 2 WW history.
Huge Thing is a Poznan–based, six-month-long accelerator, whose first batch of startups will present at its Londo-based demo day on the 1st of October 2012. To do that, Huge Thing teamed up with Lithuanian StartupHighway, another Eastern European startup accelerator, 50 percent of whose companies from 2011 got funded.
Here are their teams.
Place I Live helps choose real estate (I’ve seen their pitch at HackFwd, I think). The idea is good and I have seen similar idea executed in the US back in 2005. Since beta lunch on July 2012, PlaceILive.com has been visited by more than 9000 users.
Responsell is a proposal management tool with creatives in mind (Belarusian Quoteroller is my response to this idea).
TV Backstage is a second screen solution for news and gossips about the people on the TV screen. So to avoid being ignorant about a minor celebrity on the telley, get yourself a digital cheat sheet.
withEvent.com is a smart phone application for events (festivals or conferences) to help attendees with planning, orientation and social experience within an event. I don’t want to get into a competitive analysis, but I will just mention KitApps from Ukraine.
eGlesum is a lead generation and distribution.
Startup teams at Huge Thing:
Pocademy allows to learn to play poker. As an alternative career choice I suppose.
MoodUp is a set of mobile apps that prepare children for visiting a doctor, the first one helps with attending dentist’s office. This is a good idea, but as with all mobile apps the team needs to find a solid business model and think about distribution.
Whalla allows sharing photos from the event. Think SharyPic (HackFwd) but for B2C. I have my doubts.
Subscrea is a turn-key platform for setting up a subscription-based business in less than a minute. As I have already commented on my post on Webit, great idea, love it.
Lorneta is a new way of advertising online. It sounds like they are doing something in the direction of Y-combinator grad Slovenian DoubleRecall, but they are too secretive about the concept, so there is no way to know how exactly they differ.
Sellbox is a service which allows you to sell digital assets, especially by those with large social media following. Sellfy (former StartupHighway team ironically) comes up as a near competitor and possibilities of copyright infringement as the main issue.
Transparent Choice is an online application for collaborative decision making. It helps teams in organizations to resolve conflicts and make informed choices faster.
