St. Petersburg

Yet again it was our pleasure to be hosted by our friends at Ingria. The same phenomenon that had happened in Moscow was evidently present at St.Petersburg too: the average quality of startups, founders and their pitches had gone way up since the last time we visited this wonderful city. For sure, even more work is ahead but Russia is on a track to unleash some talented founders out to the world.

Here’s the startups that pitched in the Warmup:

APS Software to enable a consistent modeling by molecular dynamics MD, discrete elements DEM, and smoothed particle hydrodynamics SPH.
Auto SOS We help on the road
Enloca Mobile CRM for restaurants, bars and cafes
Expolet Facebook for wholesale
FriendWork Dream work will find you based on your social graph. Recruitment tool for Vkontakte.

Gelpme Service to share and explore exciting travel experiences around the world
IVY Robot Providing a toy robot platform and SDK for social and augmented reality games.
MemoCards Mobile app to learn foreign language

Signus Labs Minecraft for your mom. We’d say beautiful hidden-object games. Like modern day Monkey Island!

The winning teams were IVY Robot (yay, robots!), Memocards and Qbaka. Congratulations!
