This Spring, the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Silicon Valley held their 12th annual GROW! Awards at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. The GROW! Awards honor the fastest-growing Silicon Valley companies. This year the exclusive ceremony brought together more than 130 Silicon Valley CEOs and 170 businesses.
For a second year in a row, Whipsaw CEO Dan Harden was invited to host the Coolest Product Showcase as part of the annual ACG celebration. Dan and Nicki Boyd, CEO of Whipsaw client Versame, presented Starling, the first-ever wearable for infants and toddlers. Starling boosts brain development in young children by tracking and encouraging verbal engagement with those around them. Dan then presented and unveiled for the first time the Whipsaw-designed Google OnHub in a limited edition bamboo shroud. OnHub is the stylish cylindrical home hub wireless router introduced by Google last Fall.
Proceeds of the accompanying Cool Products Raffle exceeded $5,000 and benefited the Ravenswood Makerspace Collaborative, an initiative that provides funding for youth technology programs.
