Avangate scholarship winners for Business of Software Conference USA 2014

Avangate announced the recipients of its 2014 Business of Software Conference Scholarship today.

The three winners, CloudPress, Effective Computing and Pivotdesk, will receive complimentary passes to the Business of Software Conference USA taking place in Boston September 15-17, as well as the opportunity to attend an Avangate networking dinner with software industry leaders.

“As the new services economy continues to grow, it’s more important than ever for software and online services companies to continue innovating their products and services and their delivery model,” said Michael Ni, CMO/ SVP of Marketing and Products at Avangate. “For several years, we’ve supported promising new software and online services companies with this scholarship, connecting them with the people and resources to help them succeed. We’re excited about the winning companies this year, and we look forward to tracking their success as they grow.”

Reflecting Avangate’s commitment to the new services economy, this year’s scholarship winners focus on providing innovative services.

  • CloudPress, a SaaS product of Extend Studio, offers a set of tools and services designed to eliminate coding and server tasks for WordPress sites.
  • Effective Computing developed VoiceShortCuts, a voice command system that reduces the stress and limitations of computer use, enhancing productivity.
  • Pivotdesk is an online service that is changing the way people find office space: an office sharing marketplace that helps companies offset costs by sharing their excess office space with smaller companies and entrepreneurs looking for a place to grow their business.

It’s always a delight to have Business of Software scholarship winners at our conference. These companies are selected by Avangate in a competitive process and winners have come from all parts of the world over the years. We are excited to have them at Business of Software Conference in Boston as we are always interested in learning and bring fresh ideas to our sessions. Congratulations to the winners.

In addition to connecting these companies with new insights at the conference itself, Avangate is coordinating a networking dinner in Boston on the evening of September 16th where participants will have the opportunity to share ideas with other emerging software, SaaS, and online services industry peers and make valuable connections. To join the Avangate Boston networking dinner, please RSVP on the event’s registration page.

See you in Boston!
