We’re excited about what is to come in 2016, but let’s reflect on the highlights of 2015 at Interapt.
Togglit is a mobile app content management system that allows our developers to click a button, start making a new app, choose features for the app, and plug in content in a shorter amount of time and with less work.
Scribblit is a HIPAA-compliant texting application for mobile phones that allows physicians and staff to share patient information quickly and securely.
PowerMap is a new mobile and web app that gives economic developers instant access to detailed cooperative service territory maps for all 87 counties of Kentucky served by Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. It is also integrated with StateBook International, an online marketplace for economic development and site selection that strategically aggregates, updates, and organizes more than 60,000 data points. Users can either type in a street address or use native GPS tracking on their mobile device to determine if that location falls within the service territory of one of the 16 co-operatives.
Gartner Inc., the world’s leading research and analysis firm, has named Interapt a 2015 Cool Vendor in the Digital Workplace.
Ankur Gopal, founder and CEO of Interapt LLC, was one of the presenters at Dreamforce, a major technology conference held on September 15th through the 18th in San Francisco, presented by national technology firm Salesforce. Gopal led two sessions on the benefits of mobile and wearable devices to improve business, particularly in job training and health care.
Interapt was invited to Google Headquarters in Mountain View as part of our partnership with Google. Being in the Googleplex and working on things that will change the world is exciting enough, but watching our team get inspired, work directly with some of the smartest innovators on the planet, and bond with each other in Silicon Valley made it even more special.
Interapt CEO worked with Junior Achievement to develop its inaugural Pitch Competition & Showcase, a Shark Tank-style event that brings in JA students from local high schools to present their startup ideas to a panel of accomplished entrepreneurs. Winners will receive cash prizes for use in the classroom, and all finalists get an in-school pizza party. This will be an annual event for Junior Achievement
For a week, a group of four University of Chicago MBA students from the Booth School of Business are spent the week embedded with Interapt. So embedded, in fact, that they’re staying at Interapt CEO Ankur Gopal’s parents’ house.
The four students decided to create their own program, which they’re calling Chicago Road Ventures. They visited three cities that are not necessarily known as hot startup cities but have vibrant startup cultures. They embedded themselves with a startup in each city, pro bono. It’s a program they hope to integrate into the Booth School experience in the future
Interapt was selected to take part in the Royal familys recent visit to Louisville, and enjoyed a brief visit with Prince Charles as he strolled through a “Harmony Village” of exhibits at the African American Heritage Center. Organizations from a variety of sectors in Louisville were represented, each involved in some way with promoting local healthcare, environment, food culture, business, government, or education.
Interapt had a great deal of growth in 2015. The amount of work and projects taken on needed more help. Hiring six new faces helped us tackle new challenges and bring more fun into the office.
