Portland Seed Fund III: This time, it's digital

Portland Seed Fund, the local startup accelerator funded by a combination of private and public funds, has announced their next class of startups, a group of eight companies seeking to take their startups to the next level.

It’s a great crop of interesting companies. But what was most interesting to me was that PSF has broken from its previous two classes—each of which featured a company with a physical product, Homeschool and Indow Windows—to choose a class that was entirely tech based.

So who made the cut?

Brandlive is visually engaging product communication for social commerce and remote collaboration. @yourbrandlive

bubL is a location-based social platform introducing mobile users to relevant people, advertising, commerce, and information nearby within their personal “bubble.” @whosinyourbubl

CoCollage is a platform for social engagement combining social media and digital signage. @cocollage

InGrid Solutions streamlines the day-to-day business processes of construction trade contractors, allowing them to digitize records, report on business performance, and improve customer service through cloud software. @ingridsolutions

Mobilitus brings content and commerce to mobile devices through its innovative mHANCED products. @mobilitus

Tellagence identifies a brand’s optimum network for creating relationships and sharing content through predictive analytics. @tellagence

Vadio evolves audio into an engaging, real-time video experience distributed via radio stations. @wearevadio

Wikisway is a platform for exploring and articulating connections between people, places and things in new ways @wikisway

That’s where they are today. There’s no telling where they will be three months from now, when they emerge from the program.

For more information on the class, read the write-ups from The Oregonian or the Portland Business Journal. For more on the program, visit Portland Seed Fund or follow @pdxseedfund on Twitter.

  1. Interesting to see an all digital class, but not too surprising given the amount of capital put in by PSF initally?

    Good luck to all of the companies.
