And Boston’s Hottest Startup Is….
May 14, 2012
Last week we polled you, the Tech Cocktail reader, to find out who is Boston’s Hottest Startup. The tribe has spoken.
And the winner is…
We last covered Apptopia, the marketplace for mobile app ownership, as a participating in the #Startuplife celebration at SXSW. At the time, they were three weeks shy of public launch. Today, with six weeks after their launch, the marketplace has fostered the sale of several apps with an average price tag of $7,500. The service not only provides a platform for app creators to cash in on their applications, but also provides a variety of services to app purchasers including a verification of app statistics, handling legal documents for both parties, do escrow, and offer advice.
As part of winning the Boston’s Hottest Startup poll, Apptopia has won some time on stage at tonight’s Tech Cocktail Boston Sessions, a new speaker series showcasing the experiences of successful entrepreneurs to teach other startups how to succeed in today’s business environment. Proceeding Apptopia will be Jeff Janer, Co-Founder and EVP, Business Development, Springpad, and Jessica Kim, Founder and CEO, BabbaCo presenting on the theme of turning ideas into action.
If you can make it, we’d love to see you there.
