SpeakerGram

SpeakerGram is a tool that PR firms and companies use to screen and manage speaking engagements for their executives. It really has two types of users: In-demand speakers (CEOs, authors, celebrities, etc.) who are overwhelmed by requests to speak at various engagements; and Conference/Event organizers who are looking for keynote speakers and panelists for their events. Clients currently include Foursquare, Eventbrite, Hipmunk, and Rapleaf. SpeakerGram is currently funded by Dave McClure and enrolled in the 500 Startups Accelerator program.

OnCompare

We’ve all been there, “There are 20 online services that do ______. Which one is best for me?!”

You could spend hours researching the difference between all of the email marketing systems (e.g. Constant Contact, MailChimp, iContact, etc). You could read article after article comparing Google Docs to Dropbox to Box.net to find the best file sharing for your team. Or, you could use OnCompare and find the right answer, right now.

Before you vote, give us a shot! We’re gonna change the web.

What is SaaS?

Posted By Karla,

"Software as a service". Anything from file collaboration tools like Dropbox to email marketing services like MailChimp. The growth of online services is incredible, but how do you find the best one to implement into your business?

oncompare ftw!

Posted By neutrinoboy,

SpeakerGram is imminently useful in a market that is totally baffling and ineffective for anyone other than big name celebrities. The only people that benefit from this are the speaker bureaus.

OnCompare is a noble concept, but has proven to be a failure in the numerous past attempts to build such a business ratings directory.

@Soqueo I hope others in the startup community don't share your mindset. The timid see failures as barriers to entry, the bold see them as learning opportunities.

Also, let's not forget that Yelp has done a pretty good job building a "business ratings directory." That said, it's a tough space but we've got the right team to nail it.
