Taipei, Taiwan, October 20, 2015 – During the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Accelerator Network Summit and Global Challenge, Docceo was honored by the judges with the award for Best Teamwork.
"We are very proud of our team and thank the judges for the recognition", says Docceo CEO Todd Gordon.
Thirty-one startups from 16 countries competed in front of an all-star jury made up of top managers and representatives from Intel, Siemens, the Taiwan and US governments as well as prominent people from the start-up community.
The Docceo founding team has known each other since 2001 when they were all involved in the Tablet PC startup PaceBlade. One of PaceBlade's claim to fame is that several Tablets were sold to NASA and are still used in the International Space Station 13 years later.
After PaceBlade was sold to Dutch computer company Tulip, the Docceo team went their different ways, each building their own successful companies, to come back together again in 2012 to found Docceo.
"We have a great team and are looking forward to save hotels a ton of money," says Docceo CMO Elias Ek.
Docceo has also been honored to be part of the OrangeFab Startup Accelerator Program where the company and product pitching has been honed during many months of mentoring, including Demo Days in Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul and Paris.
One indication that that program has something to do with the APEC win is that the US$100,000 first prize went to fellow OrangeFab alumni iStaging.
