kwiqly: improve the energy use of your building withouth installing hardware

kwiqly wants to help you save energy money by using the data from your utility provider and combining it with the weather information. There’s nothing to install, no need to buy any hardware.

James Ferguson, has presented the company at the startup competition at LeWeb and they are one of my candidates for the final.

Be-Bound: surf the internet without WiFi or data connectivity

Be-Bound is the great world changer of the startup competition at LeWeb. They propose a smarphone app that relies on the standard mobile phone networks to allow for Internet use. How do they do it? By sending sms to and from their servers.

To use it you buy prepaid credit and every action (reading an email, forwarding a message, updating your Twitter timeline), costs from one to three credits.

This application can really be useful on areas with no data coverage and for people traveling to other countries that don’t want to pay the hefty roaming data fees. They have already negotiated the access to all mobile networks in the world.

Albert Szulman is the president of Altheia, the company that has developed it.

Update: they did make it to the final (the only company of the three I chose) but ended up second, in a decission critiziced heavily by the jury members themselves.

KodesK fait l???unanimit?? au Startup Weekend | Geeko Le Soir Blog

KodesK fait l???unanimit?? au Startup Weekend

Pour les sept ??quipes qui ont surv??cu ?? la nuit du samedi au dimanche, c?????tait la derni??re ligne droite au Startup Weekend. Les prototypes sont mis de c??t?? et les leaders se concentrent sur leur pr??sentation. Apr??s moins de deux jours de travail en profondeur, il s???agit de vendre son produit ?? un jury compos?? d???investisseurs et d???entrepreneurs aguerris. Sans grande surprise, l?????quipe KodesK gagne le grand prix. L???entreprise cherche ?? devenir l???interm??diaire entre les travailleurs nomades et les propri??taires d???espace ?? louer. Sebastien, son cr??ateur, s?????tait pourtant inscrit sur le tard et n???avait pas de grandes ambitions : ?? Je me suis inscrit au Startup Weekend il y a deux jours, d??clare-t-il. Maintenant je dois vraiment me demander si je suis pr??t ?? monter ma propre entreprise. ?? L?????quipe vient, en effet, de gagner une souscription au Founder Institute, un organisme qui va les accompagner quatre mois durant. Pour le second prix, le domaine m??dical a inspir?? le jury : NeuroDriver, un programme de pilotage par onde c??r??brales et Heal.th, une plate forme sant?? virtuelle sont ??lues les startups les plus geeks.

Ben Piquard, le directeur du Microsoft Innovation Center ??tait un mentor et membre du jury lors du Startup Weekend ?? Bruxelles. Il explique l???int??r??t d???un tel week-end.

Pour Brice Le Bl??vennec, c???est le voyage qui compte et non la destination lors d???un tel ??v??nement. Cependant le membre du jury exprime certains doutes quant au message du Startup Weekend.

John Beckett d??crit son id??e et son plan d???attaque au deuxi??me jour du Startup Weekend Bruxelles.
