The final chapter of this round of Startup Camp is quickly approaching, and their demos at Expo on March 27th will give them the chance to prove themselves. For the past month the startups have had their heads down, polishing their pitches and making as many connections as possible before the camp comes to a close.

Stretchr, despite the fact they they have been missing the crisp Colorado air, has been thriving during their time at Startup Camp. They’ve been strengthening their market traction and refining their product and business development. They have undergoing proof of concept evaluations with several large companies who are considering signing on as a customer. A few other customers have already begun using Stretchr’s technology.

“We have National Association of Broadcasters trade show coming up and Front Porch Digital, a world leader in digital asset workflow management is going to be demoing their next generation of products, which have integrated Stretchr into the core,” said Christian Wolfe, CEO.

Stretchr has been making sure that that their product development is in line with the vision they have. Through hard work and brainstorming with fellow Startup Camp members, they have managed to hone the aspects of their product to realize that vision.

“The core of what we’re trying to accomplish with Stretchr is to make it as easy as possible to start developing, and all of out features have aligned with that goal. For example we’re launching a new aggregation feature which will allow companies to break down and view different slices of their data in a more condensed and summarized way as opposed to having to access the data raw,” per Ryan Quinn, a core developer for the company.

The benefits of being in the Silicon Valley community are only exaggerated when a selective program like Startup Camp singles out a few outstanding companies. Investors and customers alike begin to notice.

“Just saying that we’re apart of this program, the brand of it, opens doors. It gives us instant credibility with these folks. It’s also the fact that this class of 19 was selected out of almost 1000.  People hear that and say, ‘oh, I should pay attention to this little startup because they beat out 98% of everybody else,” said Christian Wolfe.

Be sure to apply for the next round of Startup Camp, and don’t forget to come to the Plug and Play Spring Expo on March 27th.
