Startup Labs Syracuse Announces Teams

Startup Labs Syracuse Logo

Some of us in the local startup world have been holding our breath since last week’s Startup Labs Syracuse  pitch day, where eighteen of the eighty teams that applied pitched their startups and were interviewed by a panel of judges. Of these eighteen teams, three would be accepted into the twenty-two day Startup Labs Syracuse program, which offers $20,000 in initial funding, a five day boot camp, mentors, and the chance to compete for a final prize of a $150,000 convertible debt note and a $50,000 marketing package from Eric Mower & Associates.

The three finalists were announced. Two are teams that came out of Syracuse University.

They are:

Regattable. If you don’t know who Regattable is by now, you aren’t getting out of your house enough. These stars of the Syracuse entrepreneurship scene began their project while attending SU and won this summer’s Student Sandbox demo day. They are in the process of manufacturing a compact, portable, assemble-on-demand sailboat. This summer they created an impressive prototype. This team may still have some room for front end developers, so if you are interested in joining an established team with momentum, you should contact them.

Centscere. This startup was also created by SU students. Centscere focuses on the social aspect of charitable giving, allowing users to give micro-payments to their favorite charitable organizations through social media, engaging other donors in the process. Last year Centscere was a semi-finalist for Startup Labs Syracuse and in the past year have built their website, beta tested it, made some beneficial partnerships, and even turned a small profit.

Crowsnest. This team began while members were attending the University of Rochester and working at another startup, Sudo, Inc. Crowsnest is a service that connects Wifi cameras to online services by automatically sharing and saving photos captured when the cameras detect motion. Cameras will connect automatically with social media, blogging and cloud storage in real time, letting users see and share anything at any time, whether they are present to take the image or are using the camera remotely.

Looks like January should be an exciting time for these teams as Startup Labs Syracuse brings them to the next level. Make sure you check out the January 6 Launch Party if you want more information on the teams or on Startup Labs Syracuse.
