Seven companies graduate from “Gig Tank”

GigTank-teknoSeven teams brought a summer-long boot camp to a rousing conclusion yesterday before a filled theater during “Gig Tank’s Demo Day” in Chattanooga.

Their seven-minute pitches and a brief presentation by Charlie Brock, Chief Executive Officer of LaunchTN, concluded a day of celebrating the start-up environment in Chattanooga.

The seven companies  were:

  •  Mira Designs, a company that develops software for interactive digital signage. Through the company’s MIRApod and MIRA analytics products, retailers collect actionable data and improve the in-store shopping experience of customers.
  •  HutGrip, a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) start-up, that helps manufacturers better understand, manage, and handle production downtime and improve their processes.
  • Sensevery, which is offering “Fitbit for Grandma, a wireless sensing platform for care providers and their loved ones to monitor daily activities, like motion and sleep, and accidental falls in homes and senior care facilities. The company was previously profiled on teknovation.biz at http://www.teknovation.biz/2013/06/20/suthar-moves-chattanooga-launch-company/.
  • WeCounsel, another company profiled on teknovation.biz at http://www.teknovation.biz/2013/06/13/wecounsel-focused-bringing-mental-health-therapy-underserved/,  is a HIPPA compliant, cloud-based platform connecting mental health professional to their clients and colleagues online.
  •  FwdHealth offers a product called “Progressive Snapshot” that integrates popular wellness applications and trackers into one, simple user interface to allow clients to manage their personal goals rather than a set of apps.
  •  Sisasa is focused on increasing the financial literacy of young adults through a mobile app.
  •  Tidbit bills itself as “making it easy for anyone within an organization to publish training content for employees, customers and partners via mobile devices.”
