Docklands Innovation Awards 2006

I watched Ripple Software win the €10,000 prize at the Dockland Innovation Awards last night.

Ripple provide a market analysis and strategy selling engine for the top 100 Ebay sellers (interesting fact: 40% of sales on Ebay are generated by the top 1% of sellers). There USP was the ability to analyse trades on Ebay using multi-lingual analysis of the trades on all the localised Ebay sites around Europe.

They beat off strong competition from Paydaq (low cost western union style money transfer targetting Eastern Europe) and Webtalk (VOIP for businesses).

There were also some “commended” awards and I was particularily taken by DataKraft who have a Rapid Application Development Environment for .NET that takes up where Access leaves off.
