MAW kicks off in London on Monday with another awesome group of startups joining the event. Once again, the diversity of the participants is outstanding. The companies range from an archiving service to a home cooking app to a video surveillance company. This is a small but mighty group of participants who are looking forward to a week packed full of development, consulting, and presentations. Make sure to check out this week’s participants:
archify is a ground-breaking new service created to tackle the information overload crisis. archify archives everything you see on the web or in your social stream (Facebook, Twitter etc) – then lets you search it quickly. The tool is seamlessly integrated into most browsers and runs automatically, so there’s no need to bookmark or manually save information.
Whisk revolutionizes home cooking. Whisk makes it simple for a user to take any recipe they find on the Internet, tailor it to their tastes and needs and then purchase the ingredients they need, either in store or via online supermarkets. The mobile application will allow a user to manage their home cooking experience from their mobile devices. This includes finding and bookmarking recipes, creating shopping lists, viewing previously created shopping lists as well as checking out their shopping list via online supermarkets.
