BoozeTech: 10 companies fill Techstars Connection Demo Day lineup to the frothy brim

BoozeTech: 10 companies fill Techstars Connection Demo Day lineup to the frothy brim

Techstars partners with the world’s largest beverage company to showcase 10 startups that are bridging the gap between cutting-edge technology and booze.

Business accelerator Techstars partnered with AB InBev to host the Techstars Connection Demo Day on Thursday in Manhattan where 10 tech startups specializing in everything from making it easier to find people to go for a beer with, to fundamentally changing the way the fermentation process works, were on display.

Among these innovative imbibers include the likes of Quantac, whose sensor technology can tell you how many drinks you’ve had in standard drink units and when you will hit sobriety if you stop drinking.

While we humans may have a difficult time gauging how many we’ve downed during a light-hearted session, fortunately for us, this tipsy-telling wearable will never let us down.

Nine other startups have put all their efforts three sheets to the wind to deliver us controlled fermentation, automated flavor optimization, marketing tools, where to find rare spirits, and social platforms, among others.

The full list of companies distilling the latest tech for the partially-parched include:

Afineur – A biotechnology company pioneering the use of controlled natural fermentations to make better, healthier and more sustainable food products.

Analytical Flavor Systems – A B2B platform allowing automation and optimization of personalized food and beverage products.

Drinkeasy – A premium liquor marketplace built for messaging platforms. Part AI, part human agents, Drinkeasy already helps thousands discover and buy hard-to-find sprits – from a $2000 rare scotch to a small batch tequila.

Intelligent Layer – is a Machine Learning company reinventing customer engagement.

NaCa Fermentation – A service that improves and accelerates high quality wash production.

Paranoid Fan – A mobile software company that uses social mapping to mobilize fans at venues and in their own communities.

Party with a Local – A platform that connects people who love to party with a growing global community of local nightlife enthusiasts in over 150 countries.

PlanSnap – A service that eases event planning by allowing everyone to agree on the details of a plan with two taps.

Quantac – A wearable technology platform that uses transdermal sensing technology to monitor blood content.

GoNative – GoNative reimagines the video production process and uses cutting edge technology to innovate, scale, and accelerate the production of video content for brands and publishers.
