LAUNCHub, a 9 million euro seed and accelerator fund based of Bulgaria, has announced its first 6 seed investees. The companies receiving the funds are Coherent Labs, DeskGod, Imagga, iMediaShare, Rankur, and Storpool. Each will receive up to 200,000 euros in seed-money and will complete the 2-month course with the hopes of qualifying for an additional 200,000 euros. In announcing the initial 6 investees, LAUNCHub also announced that it is accepting applications for the next round (the deadline for which is January 6, 2013). Here are the teams.
DeskGod – A business-management service, DeskGod provides a set of tools through which clients can interact with their website visitors more effectively (ROI analytics, help desk, live chat, etc.). Clients also receive reports which will allow them to analyze the effectiveness of their marketing efforts.
Imagga – This is a cloud-based service which provides a host cloud services for image management, including image search, processing and analytics.
iMediaShare – This company’s software enables iOS and Android users to watch internet videos on their TVs (which must be connected to the user’s home network) without having to purchase special hardware. A quick check of the Android app in the Google Play store shows that it maintains a 4.3 (out of 5) rating from 22,622. Having been downloaded 3.3 million times (by Android users alone), it’s clear that this app is quite popular. This app is free, but the paid version promises an ad-free experience. Interesting how this will app will play against Zapstreak, which just launched an SDK to allow mobile developers integrate the AirPlay functionality into their Android apps.
Rankur – This company provides social media monitoring tools which allows clients to monitor their online reputation. According to its site, the company has already managed to pick up 7,000 subscribers and processes millions of blog-posts, reviews, and messages on a daily basis.
