DALLAS, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech Wildcatters, a Dallas-based seed stage technology accelerator, announces the conclusion of its Spring 2011 class of seven startups and its "Pitch Day," which takes place Thursday, May 26 at The Magnolia in West Village. Pitch Day is an event to introduce Tech Wildcatters' portfolio of companies to investors and the entrepreneurial community at the conclusion of its 12-week 'boot camp'. Last year's event attracted 300 investors, entrepreneurs and corporate leaders to meet the companies and support their progress.
The Kauffman Foundation recently ranked Tech Wildcatters eighth among U.S. startup accelerators for its outstanding program characteristics, funding events and company successes. Tech Wildcatters launched in April 2010 and focuses on companies with enterprise and B2B business models.
The Spring 2011 Tech Wildcatters class includes MemoryReel, a mobile platform that increases event marketing ROI for sponsors and organizers; Vignature, an image based electronic signature service that reduces fraud and expedites document execution; SparkCrowd, a mobile game that enables face-to-face connections in a fun way; RentSavvy, a simple, social, smart way for renters to find the right apartment at the right price; mComm360, a mobile commerce back-end solution for brands; Proxomo, a 2011 Gartner Cool Vendor that enables rapid app deployment; and Nimbix, a cloud supercomputing solution that compresses compute time by an order of magnitude.
Previous Tech Wildcatters participants went on to raise capital from firms like Austin Ventures and Walden Ventures. The Tech Wildcatters program also targets improved operations; one company started the program with $75K in annual revenue and less than a year later, scaled to $1.5M in recurring revenue with no additional funding.
This year's Keynote Speaker is Mike Yavonditte, CEO and Founder of Hashable. Mike founded Hashable after successfully building and engineering the sale of Quigo to AOL for $340 million. Tech Wildcatters' Pitch Day event will take place on Thursday, May 26 from Noon – 3:45 p.m. at The Magnolia, with a Happy Hour immediately following. The event is free to attend for accredited investors and corporate executives.
Tech Wildcatters' Pitch Day sponsors include Dallas Morning News, Covera Ventures, Nunez PR Group, Munsch Hardt, and Trailblazer Capital. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available for the Pitch Day event.
