Over 400 people gathered at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus as ten local startups competed for prizes in a pitch-style competition Thursday.
Glip, a modern business messaging and productivity platform, took first place in Refresh Miami’s "demo night”. Glip allows users to plan, share and organize their work in a convenient and easy-to-use mobile/tablet platform or web browser. CEO and founder Peter Pezaris said the company has had success since its 2012 inception, already serving thousands of companies.
“We built Glip because we know that 36 percent of the average information worker’s time is wasted everyday,” Pezaris said, citing an MIT study showing that 50 percent of the difference between low-performing and high-performing teams is the quality of communication.
So, Glip takes all of the communication and management tools a business needs, and integrates them into one service on one screen including: shared calendars, instant messaging, distributed task and project management, file sharing and video conferencing.
