New York City has recently celebrated a Demo Day called the Entrepreneur’s Roundtable Accelerator (ERA) Demo Day. This ERA is a relatively new incubator while compared to others like 500 startups and Y combinator. With the different latest and greatest startups having presented, the program was a successful one.
Below are some of the few selected companies that TechCrunch has picked for reference from the 2012 Summer ERA Demo Day.
This is a site that helps you plan a trip with your friends the easy way. By logging in, a user of Jetaport can add his or her friends via face book to make the trip planning easier. The site, working on a partnership with Expedia, helps users book their trips and have them available for everyone in the group to view. Every user is provided an itinery of their own where members can be notified in case of any change of plans or change of idea.
Currently in its prototype phase and working on revamping its user interface, the company is on its way to launching a closed beta within the next three weeks or four. The company is currently working on raising $500000for its growth.
From inspirational bracelets, to nutritional supplies, to wellness accessories to clothing HealthyChic provides all that a yogi will look for.
With its brands curated by Yoga ambassadors of 20 different kinds, and with instructors like that of Heidi Klums Yoga to help you pick out the most appealing brands and products, Healthy Chic is a one stop ecommerce shop that can never go wrong for any yoga shopper.
Currently bootstrapped and looking to raise a $1million following this current launch, the company is now seed funded by the ERA and has about 150 vendors having signed on its platform.
A SaaS Product, this company specifically plans to fix emails for its enterprise. Essentially infiltrating your emails, it allows users to perform things considered impossible on its rather ancient platform. Emails of any size can be sent to anyone, email signatures can be managed based on a users track attachments and email directory and users can thus know it when their documents an jpg have been opened up. Apart from this the site also enables users to remind senders to respond to emails and send reply timeouts. The use of BCCs can be blocked to boot.
Essentially allowing users to convert their PDFs and Word docs into a dynamic document on the web, Bizodo in a way resembles a drop box on steroids. The converted documents can also be sent back and forth or even forwarded along to a client.
However the good part is yet to come. A user can even esign documents and complete forms thus leaving no more value to the age of printers.
Prior to joining the ERA, Bizodo had raised a seed round of $4,75,000
