The North Carolina Technology Association handed out 25 NC Tech Awards to individuals and organizations from across the state at its annual awards dinner hosted at the Raleigh Convention Center. Windsor Circle is proud to have taken home two of those awards.
In April 2014, Google for Entrepreneurs hosted the inaugural Demo Day at Google headquarters.
In September 2013, Google for Entrepreneurs launched a network of partnerships with seven coworking and accelerator spaces around North America. Google for Entrepreneurs decided to bring the top startups from those tech hubs to Silicon Valley to pitch to best-in-class VC firms.
Each tech hub nominated their top startups, creating a cohort of 10 companies. The startups were a mix of B2B and B2C founders working on ideas ranging from big data to new marketplaces to healthcare. Each of the then startups had five minutes to pitch, followed by questions from VC judges (AOL-founder Steve Case, SoftTech VC partner Stephanie Palmeri, and Google Ventures partner MG Siegler).
At the conclusion of the event, judges crowned a "Judges' Favorite" which went to Windsor Circle, an email retention automation platform based out of our partner space in Raleigh, North Carolina.
