There is a rise in the business world when it comes to tech startup companies with multi-million dollar funding campaigns. Entrepreneurs, thanks to internet publicity, are able to get more exposure for the projects that they are working on. There are a ton of entrepreneurs like Melonee Wise of Fetch Robotics and Augusto Marietti that are putting their time into creating some apps and robotic concepts that may easily change the world.
Fetch Robotics is a company that is working on warehouse optimization while Augusto Marietti is moving towards microservices with Kong. These are just a few of many companies that are building a new wave of tech companies that are moving up the latter and getting recognized.
While Amazon does appear to be one of the most interesting companies around it is obvious that there is still room for competition on the small business end. There are women in CEO positions like Laura Behrens Wu of Shippo that help companies ship products out. This is a company that currently only has about 60 people in place, but it is growing because it is helping e-commerce businesses with parcel services. This is something that is always a big deal for e-commerce so it is easy to see how this company will be able to maintain a presence as it grows.
Tech guru Jon Gelsey is also getting in on the tech start up business by helping with the management of logins through Autho. This company has received as much as $54 million in funding, and it appears to be growing as one of the top employers in on Seattle’s west coast. This are a lot of innovative measures taking place in tech companies that are making it easier to use the web or protect sensitive information. Autho is a great for password management security, but HackerOne is taking a new and creative approach to security as well. This is the San Francisco based company owned by Marten Mickos that actually pays hackers to find securities holes so that these issues can be fixed. It is a great platform for big companies like Google and Microsoft to test out applications and pay hackers to break these applications before these products are introduced to the mainstream.
