Meet the Founder Labs 003 Graduates

founderlabs-410x235.jpg

Founder Labs is a pre-incubator for people with ideas or those looking to meet co-founders. During the 5-week program participants validated their ideas, created rapid-prototypes, and evaluated potential co-founders. 5 groups worked in parallel on different early-startup mobile startup ideas. Some will continue together, others will choose to regroup. Meet the founders that came out of the Founder Labs Mobile Edition (Winter 2011):

Mpiphany

The world of mobile advertising is the new Wild Wild West! There are more phones than PCs and TVs combined. Mobile advertisers are increasing exponentially. Yet the tools for advertisers to analyze and optimize their campaigns do not even exist. Currently, high-value staff spend their time poring over Excel spreadsheets, running custom reports, and filtering out unproductive channels. This is laborious, does NOT scale, and does NOT provide optimal audience targeting. Check out Mpiphany at www.mpiphany.com. You can follow Mpiphany on Twitter at @mpiphany.
