MEMBERS TO WATCH!
Gebni – Gebni is Workville’s youngest company. It is a new app for restaurants; their dynamic pricing algorithm optimizes off-peak delivery times. Customers save money because pricing drops during non-peak hours, while restaurants increase sales rather than throwing away food. Added bonus: this also cuts down on waste, which makes Gebni an environmentally friendly resource. Launched only four months ago, Gebni already has +200 restaurants onboard!
Lampix – Winner of SXSW BEST 2017 AR/VR startups, Lampix transforms any surface into a smarter surface. It all starts with a lamp, which masquerades as an ordinary lamp, but the functionality is way beyond the norm – users can scan to cloud storage, copy text from hard copies of documents and paste into text editor, live-stream changes made in collaborative mode by another user, and even integrate with other devices. The future has arrived.
