Inaugural Startup Class Collaborates on Enterprise Growth and Cloud Innovation at Oracle's First U.S. Startup Hub
Thursday, October 11, 2018

Austin, Texas hub welcomes six startups to the global program and Capital Factory co-working space

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle today announced the first class of startups joining the Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem hub in Austin, Texas. Announced earlier this year, Austin is the program's first U.S. hub location. The six startups in the hub's inaugural class will work closely with Oracle's research and development and enterprise sales teams to enable scalable growth and drive cloud-based innovation.

Oracle's global startup program offers personalized experiences for startups, mentoring from technical and business experts, state-of-the-art technology, free Oracle Cloud credits, and access to Oracle's more than 430,000 global customers, as well partners and investors. Unlike traditional accelerator programs, Oracle's is driven by the R&D team and does not take equity.

"In the global marketplace, one size does not fit all, and that's especially true for today's startup ecosystem," said Reggie Bradford, senior vice president, Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem. "That's why we've taken a different approach - reimagining the startup-enterprise relationship and offering personalized experiences for the startups to achieve true collaboration, co-development and co-innovation."

Selected from a competitive and diverse pool of applicants, the six startups joining the Austin-based hub include:

    -- is a platform for modern data teamwork. Its smart data
        catalog can wake up the hidden data workforce within every enterprise,
        unify silos, and create data-driven cultures faster.
    --  Eventador is a fully managed, enterprise-grade stream processing as a
        service platform that addresses a critical business problem: to
        alleviate the complexities and enable the building of applications that
        use real-time data at their core. Eventador enables developers to
        quickly create and painlessly manage real-time data pipelines to gain
        time-to-market, actionable insights and technology advantages.
    --  Pilosa enables real-time retrieval of massive, fragmented datasets.
        Pilosa introduces the concept of splitting the index from the database
        by making the index a first-class citizen in the modern technology
        stack. Pilosa's software can store a knowledge representation of
        underlying data in memory, making it orders of magnitude smaller and
        unimaginably fast.
    --  ROIKOI built one of the first talent recommendation graphs. Companies
        use ROIKOI software and services to hire a more diverse set of
        candidates more efficiently than they could through sourcing platforms
        or job boards, and can find referral-quality candidates at a scale
        greater than traditional referral platforms.
    --  Senseye is building a direct link between humans and computers.
        Senseye's technology can read the brain wirelessly, providing a vast
        array of use cases and solutions for many key industries. They are
        working to enable you to use the human brain tomorrow the way a mouse
        and keyboard are used today.
    --  Transmute is a decentralized app engine for enterprise development teams
        that can configure decentralized applications to work seamlessly with
        public and private clouds. The inevitable rise of Distributed Ledger
        Technology (DLT) and the resulting shift to decentralized applications
        will be as disruptive to enterprise IT as the transition to cloud
        computing. Transmute's mission is to help customers use decentralization
        when and where it delivers real value, using code they've already

"The six startups entering our inaugural Austin program are ready to scale innovative enterprise technologies, and we are looking forward to being a catalyst for their next phase of growth," said JD Weinstein, head of the Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem in Austin. "We will work closely with each startup to create a personalized journey that enables them to tap into Oracle's rich enterprise ecosystem, cloud solutions, global customers, and market expertise."

The startups will work out of Oracle's hub at Capital Factory and also benefit from Capital Factory's network of local entrepreneurs, prominent CEOs, venture capitalists, corporate partners, and government officials.

The Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem enables startups to tailor their program experience based on their unique journey. The global program offers an immersive co-working environment, a virtual-style experience, and an approach that is a hybrid of the two. The Oracle Global Startup Ecosystem has co-working spaces in Austin, Bangalore, Bristol, Delhi, Mumbai, Paris, Sao Paolo, Singapore and Tel Aviv, and works with startups virtually in many other locations around the world.
