Startup incubators are all the rage right now (in fact, they might have jumped the shark ;-), and Rockstart is the talk of the town here in Amsterdam. But I was just thinking the other day, my office actually has a pretty nice record of interesting startups.
Some organizations that have spent time here:
- Bits of Freedom: Ok, not a startup but still an awesome organization.
- Bottlenose: “The smartest social media dashboard.”
- NARB: Gone but cool while it lasted. Essentially a social network for galleries and art lovers.
- Newcope: Also gone but one with real potential: an auction platform for in-game virtual goods.
- Spaaza: Getting retailers’ inventory information online and on Facebook. Fred de la Bretoniere just launched their Facebook inventory powered by Spaaza last week, and I expect lots more cool announcements soon.
- Tupil: iOS and Mac apps, including the Beamer app to play any video on your Apple TV.
Not bad, eh?
