Nevolution Selected as Twiistup 8 Showoff

Creator of New "App" Store Platform for Windows PC Software Among 10 Most Promising Startups; Nevolution CEO Matt Smith to Present at Twiistup Conference February 10th

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2011) - Nevolution -- the company that insists Mac, mobile phone and tablet users shouldn't have all the fun when it comes to acquiring great software -- has been selected as one of 10 "Showoff" companies to present at Twiistup 8, which will be held February 9-10 at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles.

Woodland Hills, Calif.-based Nevolution is preparing to launch a software distribution platform to make the marketplace for Windows-based PC software as simple and easy to use as the marketplace for mobile applications or "apps." The success of Apple's recently launched Mac App Store affirms that consumers want an easier way to find, acquire and maintain software, while software publishers want an easier way to distribute their products. Nevolution is bringing familiar App store-style ease and efficiency to the global Windows PC community.

"We can't think of a better, more appropriate or more timely venue than Twiistup to preview our technology and business model," said Nevolution CEO Matt Smith. "We're honored to be selected as a Twiistup Showoff, and we can't wait to share our vision with thought leaders from across the U.S. and around the world."

Since it was launched in 2007, Twiistup has grown to become the L.A. region's signature tech industry conference and emerging company showcase. The two-day event attracts a global audience of entrepreneurs, investors, analysts and other tech industry experts.

More than 100 startups applied to become one of the 10 Twiistup 8 Showoffs. A panel of judges made up of tech industry CEOs, VCs and other senior decision makers selected finalists based on technology, business model, management team, competitive environment and other key criteria for success. Twiistup has become known for spotting great talent early. Previous Showoff companies include, The Rubicon Project,,, eHow, Meebo, Yammer and Magento.
