12 Cloud Startups You Should Know About

Written By:

At this year’s Gluecon, 12 early-stage startups have been chosen to show off their companies as part of the Alcatel-Lucent demopod competition. We were fortunate enough to be voted the best demopod company at last year’s Gluecon, back when we were still Rainmaker, and we’re looking forward to passing the torch to this year’s winner. (If you’re competing in this year’s Gluecon demopod competition, check out our blog post “How to win a conference DemoPod competition” for advice on how we did it.)
