Followprice, Xhockware, AddVolt, Streambolico and Veniam – three inRes 2014 teams and two startups, all linked with the CMU Portugal Program, are nominated for the first edition of the UP Awards, promoted by Portugal Startups. According to the organization, these awards are meant to promote Portuguese innovation and raise awareness to the new businesses among the public and the industry.

In the category “B2B Startup of the Year”, two of the nominees are Followprice and Xhockware. Followprice developed a digital "button" for users to follow the price changes while doing online shopping, and Xhockware developed the Youbeep, a system that alows users a fast and seamless checkout retail experience.

The “Most Promissing Technology Innovation” category has six nominees, and among them are AddVolt, with their energy-saving solutions for the transportation market; Streambolico, and their solutions for improving wireless communication in mobile devices; and Veniam, which builds and operates wireless networks of vehicles and of other moving things.

Followprice, AddVolt and Xhockware participated in the 2014 edition of inRes, a very early stage acceleration program for Portuguese entrepreneurial teams working in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Portugal, offered by the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program.

Streambolico and Veniam are two of the 10 startups created as a result of the activities carried out in the auspicies of the CMU Portugal Program.

Voting is now open at the UP Awards website. The finalists will be communicated on October 27th, and the winners will be announced on November 27, at the UP Awards Gala.
