“Meet three startups… INcubes latest round… has a distinctly business-to-business approach, which stands apart from the consumer-focused products… in the past. Currently involved in a three-month acceleration program at INcubes’ new office, the trio of startups are currently honing their business models and products in time for their public debut on INcubes’ Demo Day, Feb. 27.”
"…TopThat is a web-based app, allowing people and businesses to create multi-media competitions and challenges. Competition managers have the ability to create pay-to-compete competitions. Compete against friends and judge everyone. Create your own competition. Compete against your friends. Judge and be judged.”
“Videogami just pivoted its startup to focus on interactive videos geared towards teaching hands-on skills.”
“L4NP is a web app that provides training for high-quality volunteer talent, as well as matching skilled volunteers with charitable & non-profit organizations.”
