Our Past Program

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM (PST)
Startup-Eazy Connect
Bernhard Höller, CEO
Startup-Eazy Connect™ has developed and patented a personal security concept for trusted biometric registration with liveness detection technology. ID (passport, driver's license) combines facial recognition and finger scanning with camera, guaranteeing a nearly accurate and trusted reliable authentication, which can be installed on any smartphone and laptop. Once this process is completed, Eazy Connect™ can provide a clear, 100% association of biometric data with the individual. In cooperation with Vienna University of Technology, Eazy Connect™ has created PoC ready for Prototype. In collaboration with WU-Vienna, we have developed a business plan for this company and found that the biometric authentication market is growing and growing tremendously. In further research, we found that the online gambling sector, blockchain, health sector, government, banks and many more seem to be perfect markets for Eazy Connect ™ as competition is comparatively weak and the need for secure identification is high.

Chris Carmichael, Founder

VlogEasy is a free app that automatically jump cut edits your videos with ZERO editing work required. All you have to do is hit "Record" and VlogEasy will automatically do the Jump Cut editing for you! Vlogging ACTUALLY made easy: VlogEasy lets you create professional grade videos.

Chris used to be one of the first and highest paid Snapchat content creators back in 2015. After building an audience of 200k + followers and working with brands like Disney, Universal, and Lionsgate, he decided to leave Snapchat and pursue building his own video apps with his co-founders based out of Toronto Canada. After two failed attempts at launching video based social networks, they finally found success with their third app, VlogEasy. VlogEasy is the first app that automatically edits videos for creators and entrepreneurs. All you have to do is hit record, and talk to the camera like any vlogger would, and VlogEasy will automatically remove all the dead space where there's no talking in the video - instantly.
