There have recently been four startups that perfectly exemplify the diverse selection of companies on the Fundable website. These funded companies span multiple industries, ranging from child safety products to social gaming to agricultural initiatives.
Stairblocker. Every parent can relate to the unearthly fear experienced upon finding a toddler at the base of a staircase. The Stairblocker is uniquely designed to both prevent youngsters from ever being able to climb over the device onto stairs leaving your little loved ones in a safe place.
Wandering Shepherd. This company has produced a location-aware multiplayer game of territory capture using geo-fences and mobile devices. The game involves attempting to track and capture cattle who (in real life) have been outfitted with GPS devices used to monitor cattle behavior and movements.
Teemplay. Imagine a world in which gaming was not for naught; instead, gamers could utilize gaming technologies to solve complex problems, design sophisticated models and buildings, and sell this work to anyone anywhere in the world. Teemplay's vision is to create such a game; the first version of Teemplay will allow users to design architectural models to make available for sale. In the future, models can be used to solve for technological, medical, and a plethora of other real world needs.
Bonus: In case you missed it, Fundable startup Fleksy completed an equity investment round of $900,000 last week after just a few months of investor pitching and discussions.
Fleksy. This smartphone app utilizes unique predictive typing algorithms to allow users to enter text without looking. In fact, Fleksy's algorithms are powerful enough that a user can miss each letter of the word they're attempting to type and still end up with the intended word.
These four startups, each firmly positioned in a different industry, have succeeded in raising a combined total of nearly $1,000,000 in funding. From child safety to technology and everything in between, the success of these varying companies clearly demonstrates the possibilities available for startups of many types and sizes.
Congratulations and good luck on your next steps, Fundable Startups!
