Australia’s StartMate, a new seed fund for early stage companies has just graduated its first class of 5 startups.
StartMate is a three-month program that offers mentorship and investment to selected startups.
StartMate’s first graduating class includes:
Chorus: a service that lets you prioritize your response to customer service emails based on level of anger and PR fallout.
Noosbox: a Gmail add-on that lets you share and search emails with work colleagues, so that important conversations are visible to others.
IRL: a location-based zombie survival game for iPhone game. That’s zombie survival IRL – in real life.
Grabble: a mobile app for recording receipts, to help you avoid keeping and tracking paper copies.
BugHerd: a simple bug tracker that overlays a webpage, aimed at developers and designers alike.
The five companies are now in the Silicon Valley, and they will be participating in a panel on Monday, March 28 at Pier 38 in San Francisco.
