Namo Media – San Francisco Fastest Growing Startups Winner

Namo Media is this week’s superstar. Having a monthly growth of 442%, Namo Media impresses by their efforts to help individuals and professionals gain more revenue with the help of their websites or blogs, through the ad method.

Their goal is to create ads that complement the content instead of disrupting it, from any point of view – quality, design or message.

Founded on February 11, 2013, this small company has aroused the attention of important investors that chose to grant $1,875,000 in order to support the efforts of co-founders Gabor Cselle, Tural Badirkhanli, Nassar Stoertz, from which we mention only a few: Kevin Scott, Chung-Man Tam, Keith Coleman, Garrick Toubassi, Tikhon Bernstam, Michael Levit, Benjamin Ling, and Paul Buchheit, but also Google Ventures, Trinity Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz.

Appgyver: HTML5 Hybrid Appsv

At the  2nd prize goes to another great Startup: Appgyver. What do they do? They offer some tools to Build HTML5 Hybrid Apps. The mission:

“AppGyver-built HTML5 apps must be indistinguishable from native apps.”

“Building apps with AppGyver must be rapid, pain-free and fun

Backed by Initial Capital  with 2.5 Mil $  in march 2014, now they can invest money to grow. AppGyver was founded in March 2011, by Finnish graduates of the University of Helsinki and Heltech AV-Academy, Marko Lehtimaki and Henri Vahakainu.

They have been featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Dr.Dobb’s and ArcticStartup, and among their clients we can find famous names, like IBM, Intel, Virgin or Adobe.

Whistle

We have to admit that dogs are a man’s best friend. Sometimes they feel more like family than our parents or siblings. But we have to ask ourselves: Do we give back what we receive?

Whistle Activity Monitor   Stay connected to your dog

Whistle challenges dog owners to take better care of their pets.

How?

By monitoring them with a small and simple device that can be attached to the dog’s collar. It enables the owner to assess the dog’s behavior when it is left home alone and see what it needs upon arrival.

Co-founders Ben Jacobs, Steven Eidelman and Kevin Lloyd describe the company team in the following words:

“We are a passionate group of technologists with collective experience across leading technology and consumer products companies, including: Amazon, AOL, Apple, Bain, BCG, Genentech, Google, HP, Microsoft, Philips, Sierra Wireless, Sony Ericsson, and Texas Instruments.”

Experience does not lack in this amazing group of dog lovers. And the quality of the services they provide has put them on a rising mountain. Whistle is one of the “Rocket Companies” in the pet healthcare area that will keep on growing, just for doing one thing: sharing what our speechless friends cannot!

Priceonomics – Finances Trusted Advisor

Everyone needs and asks, from time to time, the help of a finance adviser. It can be a member of the family or a hired professional. But sometimes you get these service for free. Where? At Priceonomics, the monthly estimated unique visitors runner-up among our San Francisco fastest growing Startups!

Founded in December 2011, by Omar Bohsali and Rohin Dhar, Priceonomics is one of the Startups with the most investors. On May 5th it has received more than $1.5M in seed funding only 5 month from its launch date, from more than 20 investors, among them being: Y Combinator, SV Angel, Open Network Lab, Blazer Ventures, Start Fund, Spark Capital, Crunch Fund and Andreessen Horowitz.

At this point, Priceonomics has become the place to go if you want a fair review and price on any used good. Public listings can turn out to be either overpriced or scams. This doesn’t happen on Priceonomics. Fair reviews and market analysis can offer you a fair price on what you want to buy or sell, making sure you are not ripped of or under-rate your product.

Humble Bundle – The Charity Oriented Startup

Focusing not only on revenue, but also on the greater good is the goal of Humble Bundle co-founders Jeffrey Rosen and Josh Graham.

Humble Bundle, formerly known as Humble Indie Bundles, is a digital distribution platform that enables users and customers to pay what they want and not only that – to choose how the charity part of their payment will be used.

Over the years, co-founder Jeffrey Rosen realized that the power of word-of-mouth and pay-what-you-want strategies can become limitless, especially after the success with “World of Goo“, who raised more than $115,000 after Paypal taxes in only one day.

Believing in the idea aroused in his mind, Rosen gathered around him a group of talented developers that helped him create what is now Humble Bundle, our San Francisco fastest growing Startups winner in the monthly EUV category.

Their monthly growth reaches 67%, but their constantly growing number of monthly estimated unique visitors, which has now reached almost 4,500,000 is a good indicator that their strategy works perfectly, after only 3 years since it has been launched.

Proof that someone else believed in their concept are the 2 seed funds received by Humble Bundle, on April 1st, 2011 – $4.7M from Sequoia Capital and on April 21st, 2011 – $4,5M from SV Angel.

The fact that Humble Bundle continues to release bundles and have a great success proves this startup has appealed to its visitors and clients, making it one of the top 15 “Rocket Companies” in San Francisco this week!
