This summer six carefully chosen startups will be working together as Starter Studio’s Second Class. Starter Studio is a tech business accelerator program in Orlando, Florida that provides startups with free workspace, mentorship, and a range of events designed to help starters further develop their businesses. Events include Monday Night Founder Talks and Brown Bag Lunches, which are open to the community. The intensive program culminates in Starter Studio’s final pitch event, Demo Day.
The six teams selected to participate in Starter Studio’s second class:
ClikClok provides online time tracking and back office management for staffing companies. Focused on improving efficiency and providing meaningful metrics, its goal is to help staffing companies make more profitable decisions.
Flight Fishing catches the best fares on the web for flexible travelers and delivers them via text, email or tweet.
FLBlogCon is on a mission to educate and inspire bloggers, equip them with the tools to move from hobbyist to professional, and then work to connect them with brands. This startup owned by Bess Auer has a special place in my heart because I have been involved on the planning team since the very beginning. FLBlogCon has grown from offering just a yearly sold out conference; to tweet chats, niche events, and BlogTalkTV. I expect to see amazing new things come from FLBlogCon’s participation in Starter Studio this summer.
Joicaster is a live streaming multi-platform manager. The company has developed a unique service for content creators that simplifies the process of managing, scheduling and syndicating live video content to multiple online streaming providers.
Skookoo is launching TROBO, a connected toy and interactive storytelling application to get kids excited about science, technology and engineering. This startup was developed over a weekend at Startup Weekend Orlando and will hopefully be able to encourage kids to get excited about STEM very soon.
Outhouse Games develops games with quality and playability in mind. With each title, the company creates a unique experience that can be played in five minutes while you wait for your taxi, or for five hours during your plane trip across the country.
