- SocialTagg – Events can be a daunting and inefficient experience for both organizers and attendees. When attendees arrive at the door, they usually wait in long lines, check in, print badges, and finally go through a security checkpoint. Once inside the event, attendees who want to network don’t know where to start or whom to connect with. After the event concludes, attendees painstakingly enter their new contacts, one by one, into their contact management system. Meanwhile, for the duration of the event, organizers juggle check-ins, manage event logistics, and find ways to track their event’s success. Enter SocialTagg. We revolutionize the event space with an end-to-end solution that combines social, event registration, and ticketing into one platform, accessible on web, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Instead of using multiple tools across various applications, the event organizer now uses SocialTagg to meet their main event planning needs.
- Tengrade, Inc. – Every year, billions of dollars in purchase decisions are made based on online ratings and reviews. In fact, 70% of consumers rely on ratings & reviews when making purchase decisions (2013 McKinsey poll). Yet everyone knows that online reviews are often fake (20% estimated by Yelp), and even genuine reviews have limited relevance as they often come from people with vastly different tastes as the user. In addition, text reviews are time-consuming to parse through, when all the user often wants is one or two quick opinions that appear trustworthy. Enter Tengrade. Tengrade provides opinions from your friends and people like you, allowing users to make decisions faster, more efficiently, and with greater confidence. Tengrade also lets you express your own opinion very succinctly in way that is easily shared with friends, to help them make their own decisions.
