We’re excited to announce the winners of the Progress-XTC Challenge – a contest we held in conjunction with the Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) start-up competition! Out of hundreds of applicants, we’ve chosen the top three most deserving app dev projects that would also benefit from Progress solutions.
The three winners will each receive funds to help take their products to the market -- with the first place winners awarded $25,000 in development funds and the two runners up receiving $5,000. The winners will also get help from Progress experts to ensure their product comes to fruition.
Additionally, all entrants will receive Progress development licenses, free product training and mentoring from Progress experts to continue building out their applications. All applicants have shown a lot of talent and we think with some Progress support they will excel even further in the marketplace.
So, without further ado, the winners are…
First place goes to Places by Ansamb. Places is the ultimate private messaging and file-sharing application, combining the features of Dropbox and Skype, and adding security to assure the strongest level of privacy for content and communications.
Second place goes to AKIOMA config!, a cloud service that enables companies to build web-based configuration forms for self-service sales of complex products without any coding. With the config! app, AKIOMA aims to become the leading cloud-based solution for sales of configurable products worldwide.
Third place goes to engajer, a SaaS platform that enables enterprises to connect with their audience through interactive video. Engajer is an easy-to-use online platform that communicates marketing messages in a way that is personal and engaging.
