REDWOOD CITY, CA and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - February 16, 2017) - Startup Grind today announced the induction of 50 Companies to the 2017 Class of Startup Exhibitioners including bug reporting and crash analytics tool for mobile app developers, Bugsee. The Startup Exhibition recognizes the top 50 companies handpicked from thousands of submissions from around the world. Bugsee, which launched on Jan. 24, is the first and only bug reporting solution that continuously captures video of user interactions in live apps so that developers can quickly identify the actions that led to the bug or crash.
"Of the thousands of startups that were considered, 50 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries," said Derek Andersen, Founder and CEO of Startup Grind. "These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets. Our goal is for each startup to go back home with a new and improved game plan that would not have happened without the exposure of the exhibition and the resources gained through the Startup Grind network."
In addition to being one of the 50 companies selected to exhibit at the Startup Grind event, Alex Fishman, CEO and Co-Founder of Bugsee will host a fireside chat with special guest, Jan Koum, Co-Founder and CEO of WhatsApp, the mobile messaging application which was acquired by Facebook in February 2014 for $19 billion. The discussion will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 4:30 p.m. PT.
Companies chosen to participate in the Startup Grind Startup Exhibition are an elite group of organizations with a diverse group of founders ranging from a 16-year-old who secured 20,000 paying customers in only two-months, to a professional basketball player, to a medical director from Yale University. Startup Exhibition companies are given access to the Startup Grind global audience through media, and onsite at the annual Startup Grind Conference, Feb. 21-22 in historic downtown Redwood City. The goal of the global event is to help entrepreneurs and early stage companies accelerate their growth and path to success by having access and visibility to the mentors and investors in the Startup Grind network -- representing 200 cities, 98 countries and one million entrepreneurs globally.
