DALLAS, June 27, 2005 The International Business Development Network (IBDNetwork), has published the winners of the Under the Radar | Consumer Technologies Innovation awards and Audience Choice awards. The winners were announced at the close of the one-day Under the Radar event, which was held in Mountain View on May 31, 2005. The event showcased over 32 innovative companies in four consumer technology sectors: search, mobile applications, social software & tools, and home & entertainment. Each company presented to a panel of VC judges, audience members, and industry experts for the opportunity to be named one of the companies most likely to succeed.
“The Under the Radar Innovation Award winners represent some of consumer technology’s most exciting and promising companies,” said Alison Murdock, co-founder and president of IBDNetwork. “The winners, most of whom have received less than two rounds of funding, had five minutes to show their potential for success based on their breakthrough technology solutions, market opportunities, and ability to articulate clear and compelling value propositions. The winners were selected by the audience and a panel of VC judges. We wish the winners the best of luck and look forward to tracking their progress in the future.”
Under the Radar was sponsored by Acteva, Comerica Bank, Intel Capital, LEWIS PR, Perkins Coie, and UK Trade & Investment. The event was hosted by Microsoft.
