Shall I Buy
Didier Vermeiren, CEO
Shall I Buy is a mobile application that allows shoppers on the go to log and share their purchase intentions and share that with friends to get instant feedback. While online shopping offers a lot of efficiencies to research a product on specifications, price, reviews, this is not the case for offline shopping, but it still represents 97% of the overall retail industry. Today we see that consumers are slowly altering the retail landscape by using technology. At the moment almost 50% of the consumers that use smartphones in stores already take pictures of products. Become one of the early users and register your spot at http://shallibuy.it // @shallibuy

Research shows that people are highly influenced by other reviews online. Text reviews are subjective though and often experienced as unreliable.Video reviews are rich, more transparent and have proven to increase conversions. Bubobox brings high-quality video testimonials to every device and will reward contributors through social and gaming mechanisms. We do this by providing a freemium widget, which can be embedded onto every device and will make it very easy to automatically gather and show customer video testimonials. BuboBox is a Founder Institute graduate and we strongly believe customer video reviews to be the next evolution of online word-of-mouth, and we would like to play a major role in this. http://bubobox.com // @bubobox

Alma In Silico
Pierre-Yves Gilson, Lead Developer
Laboratory activities in biotechnology and biomedical fields have a lot of manual operations that do not take advantage of modern IT technologies. This may also affect the management of orders, complete with experiments or storage and processing of data. Our solution? Alma In Silico developed a web application that exposes the services provided by the laboratories, storage and processing of data. This portal is based on a layer of web services allowing us to interconnect the various IT resources that our customers need. The storage is based on technologies of cloud and is enriched by the ability to attach data processing actions, again on the cloud, such as systems external grids. Alma In Silico thus provides the missing links between multiple laboratories, their clients and the resources of the cloud. http://www.alma-in-silico.com
