On this past Friday, CaptainDash has been pleased to be awarded as the winner of the IBM SmartCamp 2012. This means that our Company has been recognized as the most promising French startup, according to IBM France. We went through a three jury process (financing, growth and international) on top of a prior selection made by the IBM execs. We believe our strategy, made of bigdata, new generation analytics, and design is fitting well with IBM's and that made sense for them to push us for the European contest that is to come in Nov this year.
We share a common vision with IBM:
- CMO is the next leader in Innovation Strategy
- Data change the world and make the world a smartest planet
- 'Consumerisation of IT' is a far-reaching phenomenon
- Hadoop is the key element for Big data
We are very proud of this partnership with a major actor of Business Intelligence.
Appart from that we are starting to pile up a significant number of awards and recognitions.
Last year we were awarded a BizSpark One membership by Microsoft (among the 60 most innovative startups globally) but that is definitely in the design category that we have received the most significant testimonials of recognition.
Just this year, we have been nominated or awarded by The Best Designs, CCS Awards, Awwwards, Coolhomepages.com... and counting !
But the best is probably still to come. Our product is to be released on oct 23rd and we are confident that its design and overall features will rock.
Thanks to all and let us move forward...
