SAN DIEGO, Sept. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- EvoNexus held its biggest event of the year on August 27th to showcase several of its startups and introduce the entrepreneurial and technology community to the next wave of San Diego innovation.
At EvoNexus Demo Day 10 startups currently incubating in EvoNexus presented their company and products to an audience of San Diego entrepreneurs, tech industry leaders, media members, and investors. Over 350 people attended the standing room only event, making it one of the biggest Demo Days ever!
Wrapify – the company that blends on-vehicle advertising, GPS information, and crowdsourcing, and other computer technology to deliver outdoor advertising – was voted the winners of Demo Day, narrowly edging out Crypteron in the closest live vote in Demo Day history!
The prize for winning was an invite to a VIP dinner with 18 investors at Estancia, which took place immediately after the event at Rady's School of Management at UCSD. Demo Day attendees chose the winner in under two minutes through a live mobile handset voting poll following the final presentation.
Other highlights from the event:
- LoanHero impressed with their revenue numbers from their consumer finance platform that's the lower interest solution to funding every type of borrower;
- AstroPrint showed that they're the Android and Google Play for the 3D printing industry, as well as how far ahead of the competition they are;
- Dotstudioz introduced their content creator platform, dotstudioPRO, that empowers content creators to earn up to 10x what they can earn on YouTube;
- And Crypteron demonstrated how simple they've made it for developers to secure their applications in the cloud
