The Demo Conference 2011 ended yesterday and has announced the winning startups:
Zugara: uses augmented reality to aid in shopping experience. Really cool demo of someone browsing an online sore and “trying” a dress virtually as if she was at the store.
Nimble: a Social CRM, gives you a tool that combines basic contact management with your social stream and activities (twitter, facebook, linkedin, etc.) in one single location. Great looking product that has potential to become a standard tool in sales organizations.
ecoATM: is your CoinStar for cell phones. Users go to their kiosks and put in their old cell phones in exchange for money. The intelligent kiosk can test your cell phone and determine its working condition, then gives you a price and you decide if you want to cash out. In that case the cell phone is kept in the kiosk for later recycling.
Stratosphere (by V3): Incredibly fast virtual desktops.
Manilla: helps you keep track and pay your bills on time. Is a central online location that consolidates all your payments and pending bills so you never miss the payment deadline again.
eCobe: helps content creators make money by giving back 75% of search engine’s advertising profit to content providers.
And for the people’s choice award: GutCheck, a do-it-yourself qualitative research online tool that helps you do your market research on a dime.
