‘LogMyCalls’ Wins Amazon’s Grand Prize for Startups
We’re seeing a rich breeding ground of startups fuel the next generation of Web services. BIA/Kelsey is recognizing local-themed startups during our upcoming Leading in Local event in Boston March 18-20. During a special startup segment on Day 2, we’re hosting a contest for “best” Future Star (details to come), and will also have a dynamic keynote from Clickability co-founder David Kidder, author of” The Startup Playbook” – an inspiring new book I am finishing now.
Amazon Web Services also is eager to promote startups. Yesterday, it announced the winners of its 2012 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Global Start-Up Challenge. Among the winners were our friends at ContactPoint’s LogMyCalls. Roughly 2,500 applicants competed to win one of four Grand Prizes. Winners received over $100,000 in cash and services.
“We are elated to be a Grand Prize Winner,” said ContactPoint CEO Jason Wells, a featured speaker at our ILM West show in December. “The market values what LogMyCalls delivers–cloud-based analytics of phone conversations so businesses can optimize their marketing, automate marketing, and make more money from phone calls.”
