Massive congratulations to ImportIO for winning yet another trophy!
Last night, the TechHub based startup won not one, but two awards at the Structure: Europe 2013 Launchpad event. They took home both the judges award (with an impressive score of 27 points out of 30), as well as the People�s choice award (generated via a poll of the audience).
David White, Import.IO's CEO, told us:
The event has been spectacular. We couldn't have asked for a better result than winning both audience and judges' choice. It's really great to see that people are showing support for Import.io's vision. I am tremendously excited about the future of import and I couldn't be prouder of everything our team has accomplished in the last few months.
Andrew Fogg, Import.IO's CTO, added:
Being recognised at a place like structure is such an honour, especially when you consider how strong the other startups were. But I think, more importantly, this win goes to show that people are excited, not just about our product, but what it represents: the democratisation of web data. Import.io has always been about making data from the web available to everyone, and it is exciting to see people responding to that message.
The judges included Kevin Brown, General Partner, Reed Elsevier Ventures (who said that the presentation by co-founder and Chief Data Officer Andrew Fogg, was the best presentation of the competition), Joe Weinman, SVP, Cloud Services and Strategy at Telxand and Paul Papadimitriou founder of Digital Intelligence.
Import.IO create software that converts web page information into structured data, and by winning the competition they joined the ranks of previous winners such as as Keen.io,, DotCloud and SaltStack.
