ricealliancelogoAustin Technology Incubator member company Ihiji shined at the Dec. 9 Rice Alliance IT & Web 2.0 Venture Forum in Houston, ranking among the top 10 of the 55 different companies to give a 90-second elevator pitch.

Three ATI-member companies gave a 90-second pitch and one graduate company, RF Micron, presented a full 10-minute pitch to the forum audience.

  • Ihiji – Inaugural product, invision, provides an intuitive monitoring tool to the Residential Electronics Systems Contractor (RESC) industry
  • Inxero – Offers a B2B social media marketing, sales and collaboration SaaS for every stage of the customer lifecycle.
  • Eonsil – Creating the next generation of solid state drives (SSD) for the enterprise market.
  • RF Micron – Developer of next generation RFID Micro Chips and platforms for itemized tracking applications.

Aside from the startup presentations, the Forum hosted three keynotes — Tomasz Tunguz of Redpoint Ventures, Nicholas Seet of Auditude and Doug Erwin of The Planet — who provided as many different perspectives on IT & web entrepreneurship. The wealth of insight from the keynotes stood as a testament to the Rice Alliance’s dedication to Houston’s emerging technology startup scene.
