my1login joins the ranks of the world’s 100 leading technology start-ups after receiving an invitation to join START, a highly-curated, invitation only group of the world’s most exciting start-ups., sister event to the acclaimed F.ounders.
F.ounders’ is known as “The Rolls Royce of tech events”, having established a reputation for attracting the world’s established digital players, including the creators of Skype, Twitter, YouTube, PayPal, SoundCloud, Foursquare, Tumblr and Digg, plus celebrities such as tech investor Bono.
START aims to replicate the F.ounders model for start-ups under three years old that have raised less than $5 million to date. The inaugural START gathering takes place on 17-18 October during the prestigious Dublin Web Summit. More than 1000 companies from more than 36 countries also applied to secure one of the 100 places in START’s ‘Spark of Genius’ start-up competition also being held during the Dublin Web Summit and my1login have made the shortlist.
Mike Newman, CEO of my1login says: “Receiving an invitation to join the world’s most exciting young businesses at START and being shortlisted for the ‘Spark of Genius’ competition are really exciting developments for us. Both are huge endorsements of our core product and a sign of the progress my1login has made since our launch earlier this year. We’re really looking forward to making the most of the massive opportunities available to us in Dublin.”
my1login is a cloud-based password manager that enables users to access all of their password-protected accounts and sites from any device, with only one login. It eliminates the need to memorise multiple usernames and passwords and, at the same time, helps users increase their online security by generating long complex passwords for each individual account.
Mike Newman says: “High-profile password hacking attacks are becoming more and more common and ‘password management’ is moving more into mainstream consciousness as a result. We’re seeing consumer demand for our service increasing on a daily basis and we can’t wait to take things to the next level in Dublin.”
The founders of Twitter, YouTube, Skype and over 100 international entrepreneurs, investors and influencers have spoken over the last two years, with thousands of attendees joining from around the world. In those two short years, the Dublin Web Summit has grown from a small conference to the second largest tech conference in Europe. In 2011, over 1,500 attendees joined us from 45 countries across the world. This year over 3,000 will attend from even more countries than ever before.
