Although our current focus is on investing in the projects that we selected out of our last Kickstart 2H10 event (two out of the 5 that were present, plus another one in Lithuania), these last couple of weeks, and yesterday in particular, were quite significant to our current investments since a few meaningful milestones were achieved. So here they are:
- Sysactum, had their first paying customer for their veterinary clinic management SaaS offer Actumvet.
- Tarpipe, who provides a webbased tool for the management of social media workflows, processed over 100.000 workflow events during July and is well on track to achieve the 1 million processed events mark by September. Yesterday, Friday 13th, was also a milestone for Tarpipe, since RTP (Portuguese state owned TV channel) has become a customer and has started to use tarpipe to feed their news items to several social networks. They join Jornal Oje (business newspaper) as users of Tarpipe.
- Quirkafleeg, a games company focused on creating ZX Spectrum remakes, finished yesterday (Friday 13th) the recordings of the vocal parts for the Deus Ex Machina 2 game soundtrack. We’re extremely proud to say that the final session was the recording of Sir Christopher Lee‘s voice as the narrator/storyteller/programmer (you might know him as Dracula, Scaramanga, Count Dooku or Saruman, among several others).
For the record, he’s the one with the beanie. The other mustachioed gentleman is Mel Croucher, the game’s author. Two legends in one picture and in one game.
