Following months of screening rockstar Armenian-founded startups from around the world, HIVE hosted a final lightning pitch-off with our Advisors last month. Out of a group of seven, the final four selectees are now being matched with HIVE Advisors for the next 6-9 months as they look to scale their companies and find their next round of funding. They include:
AthElite, the first truly comprehensive, interconnected and engaging sports database. It allows users to discover unique data sets and create or share content about their favorite sports moments.
Browsy, transform your Pinterest fashion boards into your own personal shopping catalogue.
Discotech, the premier nightlife app, allowing users to browse tables, sign up for free guest lists, book table service, buy tickets, and get VIP access to their favorite clubs.
News Deeply, a new media and technology firm dedicated to improving the user experience of complex global issues.
Each startup is sharing a brief lightning pitch at our launch event in New York to highlight their current progress and goals while working with HIVE. As HIVE portfolio companies, they will each also look to hire in Armenia to build bridges between stellar startups in the diaspora and strong talent in Armenia.
Update: Lionsharp Solutions is also a portfolio company of HIVE, designing and developing creative technology for business productivity. They are currently building the world's first Voiceboard technology.
HIVE acceleration includes Advisor matching, investment, access to our network and a demo day event at the end of the season for the startups to show off their progress to key investors.
