One of the startups in the competition of the Vator Splash San Francisco 2013 is a startup dedicated to one of our most mundane dreams: reduce gas costs. Take note: http://www.supergas.me/ - this is going to be big!
Vator Splash is a high profile tech event-competition in San Francisco, where startups present their products to venture capitalists, angel investors, and media. Vator (short for innovator) is a professional network for entrepreneurs. See more at http://vator.tv/competition/vator-splash-sf-february-2013 . As stated in the event’s website: “Splash is a single-track evening event and startup competition. Splash gathers leading entrepreneurs, innovators, venture capitalists and angel investors across technology to inspire and energize the audience about entrepreneurship and innovation. Splash brings together high-caliber speakers who talk about how to build and scale great successful companies, how their industries are changing and the opportunities those changes are creating. Splash also allows the audience to mingle with top venture capitalists and angels who are funding tomorrow's next Google and Facebook. These influencers will give you insights into how they think when it comes to investments and they'll also talk about their changing investment strategies in light of the emergence of super angels, angels, micro-VCs and incubators.”
Supergas.me was created by our very own Brazilian Yonathan Yuri Faber, owner and CEO, resident of the Silicon Valley. By preloading the gas into the lease contract, one can avoid the soaring gas prices for a long time. Isn’t it a great idea? Not just that: this app will provide also total information on your gas consumption, which may lead to even more savings. The App tracks your position and consumption behavior to give you the quickest route to the closest and cheapest gas. Dream app of all drivers! The app also gives discounts for purchases at the gas station’s stores. So, quench two thirsts while saving money. Love it! The advantage to the gas stations is the avoidance of endless credit card transactions and its associated fees.
The Vator Splash San Francisco will happen on February 13, 2012, starting at 3:30 pm, at the Cafe du Nord - 2170 Market St - San Francisco, 94114.
