Congratulations Green Platform for winning Technology Category at Launch Silicon Valley

Original post made by Angela Hey on Jun 10, 2010

Congratulations to [Web Link Green Platform] who won the prize for Company Most Likely To Succeed in the Technology Category at SVASE's Launch Silicon Valley event held at Microsoft last Tuesday.

The picture shows CEO, Gus Malek-Madani, and VP of marketing, Larry Gordon. Read more about Green Platform in last Friday's [Web Link article].

The company beat out three other companies. OpticLanes described technology for controlling traffic. Their demo showed a speed limit sign that could change depending on traffic conditions. [Web Link] RiverMuse has software for managing cloud computing environments. It differentiated its product from earlier systems and network management products like CA-Unicenter, IBM's Tivoli and HP's OpenView by automating more tasks. For example, if there's a system problem it can combine messages about the trouble into a single message and it may even fix the problem. The third company, [Web Link Zikon], had electronic ink based on nanotechnology for making active signs, labels and screens. It's ink can work on flexible surfaces and mugs to create animated displays.

The judges for the session were Ken Gullicksen, Morgenthaler Ventures, Saad Khan, CMEA Capital, and Ron Weissman, Apax Partners. Angel investor Marc Burch chaired the session.
