I wrote again about Woobius a couple of weeks ago, noting that its real-time mobile collaboration solution, Woobius Eye, had reached the final of the Vodafone Mobile Click 2009 competition. Last Friday, in a Dragons Den-style appearance before judges and a 200-strong audience at the PICNIC social media event in Amsterdam, Woobius finished third, beating both the other UK finalists in the process, to win €25,000 (around £23,000). One of the co-founders, architect James Goodfellow tells me they were the first business-oriented application to win a prize in a competition hitherto dominated by social media startups.
James and CTO Daniel Tenner will be presenting Woobius Eye during the afternoon of 7 October at the Be2camp@WorkingBuildings2009 event at London Olympia (I am one of the event organisers).
Woobius is also short-listed for the 2009 Construction Computing Awards in the ‘one to watch’ company and product categories.
