StartX held their fall Demo Day tonight to present eight companies from their 11th class. Though Demo Day has been held at the AOL building in previous years, this time it was hosted at Box in a much larger, more comfortable space. This could be due in part to StartX’s upcoming move to a new location several blocks from Stanford University in mid-March. CEO Cameron Teitelman said he looks forward to hosting several, new events that will be open to the Stanford community.
“Big Data” could become much more personal in the near future, as Chatous – a startup founded by Stanford alumni and backed by Stanford-affiliated incubator StartX – aims to leverage big data algorithms in pairing people with similar interests in an online chat environment.
