ParkMyCloud, the company that built the first programmable on/off switch for idle AWS instances, today announced that it has been selected to present at TechBUZZ Spring. Since TechBuzz was launched in 2011, presenting companies have received more than $357M in aggregate disclosed funding, with many more investments and acquisitions made under undisclosed terms.
ParkMyCloud is one of 16 handpicked companies that will share their company demo and fund-raising pitch on April 6th at PNC Place, the largest LEED Platinum building in Washington, DC.
“One of the most significant milestones for innovative new companies is the validation that comes when they secure genuine customers willing to pay for their product or service,” said Julia Spicer, Executive Director, MAVA and founder of nationally recognized TechBUZZ, “and ParkMyCloud is doing just that, having secured a number of globally recognized customers. We look forward to welcoming them to the TechBUZZ stage this spring as one of the companies competitively selected to present.”
“Presenting at TechBuzz is truly a milestone in our development,” said ParkMyCloud CEO and Co-Founder Jay Chapel. “The program has gained a top notch reputation as a venue for high-traction companies like ours to plug into the investment and tech landscape.”
