Hey there Central Europe, looks like we’re having a good month!
The winner of this year’s TC Disrupt in San Francisco was Layer (@LayerSDK), a cross-platform user communication SDK founded by Ron Palmeri (@ronp) and Tomaž Štolfa (@tomazstolfa), who is Slovenian and formerly known to this audience as co-founder of vox.io, which ceased operation earlier this year.
And the winner of the Best Hardware Startup portion of the event is Polish Estimote (@estimote), founded in Krakow by Jakub Krzych (@jimiasty) and Łukasz Kostka (@ljdk). Estimote produces a small device that can be used to broadcast venue-specific or object-specific information to smartphone users within 50 meters, targeting retailers as its main customers.
These are not only exciting wins, but also pretty impressive and innovative technology initiatives. Congrats! We can’t wait to see how TC Disrupt Berlin goes in October!
