This Week’s Best In Beta: Relcy and Foundcy

This Week’s Best In Beta

Which startup is going to be the next big thing? Investors, bloggers, job seekers, and inspiring entrepreneurs everywhere are dying to know. Hundreds of startups enter private beta each month, and that’s far too many for any one person to keep up with. Fret not! Each week, I share some of the hottest new startups in this column, Best In Beta. Let’s discover the next big thing together!

 

 

1. Relcy

OK, if we’re honest, we can admit that we already have amazing tools at our disposal on our mobile devices – of incredible variety and number. What can we say, though: you’ve impressed us, app makers, and now we have crazy expectations…

 

Most of us can’t function outside of our houses without mobile search. And, if we’re honest again, search still has room for improvement. It pulls in way too much unnecessary information that’s a hassle to sift through. On the go, we want just what we need, and even faster than usual.

 

Relcy promises a better mobile search. It doesn’t just throw out a huge net and drag back everything it scoops up. Instead, it works with tools you’ve already loaded on your mobile device to deliver the most relevant information.

“Powered by a knowledge graph of millions of real-world entities, we deliver an intelligent and highly personalized search experience. By being contextually aware of where you are and what you want to do, Relcy helps you find what you need faster.”

 

Based on where we are, as it serves us best – do we even know what that looks like? Maybe Relcy. Visit relcy.com to request early access and learn more about the company.

 

2. Foundcy

Curious as to what founders are reading these days? Sure you are. We all learn by modeling ourselves after those we admire, and what our guiding examples read throws light onto what is both useful and inspiring to them.

 

Foundcy delivers a daily fix of the fave posts read by founders. Quick clicks take you to either online articles or the Twitter pages of founders who’ve picked reading. (So you can stalk founders whose choices you enjoy and further graft their awesomeness onto yourself).

There are plenty of ways to go about gathering information – reading to learn or for pleasure. Content curated through the lens of what founders find valuable is an interesting approach to absorbing the best startup-related reading. Sharing reading material is one way to feel like you know someone, to recognize yourself in others and to flame belief that you’re on the right path.
