Cloudonix hit the road, or more accurately, the skies, this past month. October found the team travelling 3 different countries in just 3 weeks in one of the company’s most hectic months to date.
The month started off with the Ascent conference in New York, NY. The Ascent Conference is a 2 day conference that is focused on bringing together leaders in the East Coast Tech community to collaborate, learn, and shape relationships in order to further innovation. It was held at the Pier 36 event space. Cloudonix’s COO, Eric Klein, presented a 3-minute pitch as part of the enterprise software start-up track followed by a day exhibiting and holding meetings.
Directly following Ascent – Nir, Cloudonix’s CEO, and Eric jetted off to the surprisingly colder (and wetter, thanks Hurricane Michael) climate of Orlando, Florida for AstriCon 2018. First they took part in the AstriDevCon to connect with the development community about needs and future plans. In the evening, they hosted their annual, not so (but should be) secret, wine tasting (shh, don’t tell).
While at Astricon Nir presented a talk titled “Geek to CEO- My Personal Asterisk Story.”
Also, Eric did a joint presentation with Or Polaczek about the “Practical Impact of Telecom Fraud.”
During the Astricon conference Cloudonix was given the wonderful opportunity to pitch for the Wayra UK Accelerator program. Wayra is a UK-based accelerator program that invests and supports 180 companies to “help scale the global startup ecosystem”. Wayra operates in over 10 countries and its goal is to promote innovation by connecting innovators with Telefonica. Cloudonix passed the first round of pitching and was invited back to London to pitch again. Eric pitched Cloudonix in Soho at the 02/Telefonica offices.
Not even a week later Cloudonix was invited back again (that being the second trip to London in the time span of a week and a half) to participate in the Wayra UK 2018 Cohort Demo Day at Westminster, the UK Parliament in the House of Commons. Now having passed into the last and final round all that remains is to wait to make sure all loose ends are tied, and Cloudonix will be in the next Wayra UK cohort!
