In a bid for funds to expand their online service, WikiSummarizer has entered this year's Mass Challenge competition.
"MassChallenge is the largest-ever startup accelerator and competition, and the first to support high-impact, early-stage entrepreneurs with no strings attached. Benefits for startups include:
- 3 month accelerator program. World-class mentorship and training, free office space, access to funding, media and more.
- $1M in Cash Awards. $4M+ in-kind support.
- Open to all. Any startup can enter, from anywhere, in any industry.
- No equity taken. No restrictions applied."
"President Obama honored MassChallenge in January of 2011 as one of the nation's best organizations for supporting high-growth entrepreneurs, and MassChallenge is an affiliate of the Startup America Partnership.
The 111 startups supported in the 2010 accelerator raised over ~$100M in outside funding and created ~500 new jobs in under 12 months."
The WikiSummarizer elevator pitch is:
"WebSummarizer provides tools to summarize web pages and documents to make the KEY FACTS instantly VISIBLE. Organizations and users can integrate WebSummarizer engine with search engines, social media, blogs, news and any textual information streams to filter and extract summaries and automatically build knowledge bases. The keywords and summaries form corporate and personal knowledge libraries. WebSummarizer works with any 3-rd party content applications on computers, tablets and smart phones."
