SeeqPod was selected from more than 1000 companies, peer-nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts. SeeqPod was developed from the idea that Internet search results should be delivered in their most actionable, true form, particularly in the case of rich media content. SeeqPod’s vertically targeted crawlers crawl the deepest parts of the web to enable Internet-wide search and discovery of anything that can be linked to and then played, or shared with friends. This novel concept, paired with an incredibly complex algorithm, which mimics the human brain, has been the launching pad for SeeqPod’s recent successes.
“We are proud to be recognized by AlwaysOn, and our users, for our work in the realm of search and discovery for digital media,” said Kasian Franks, founder and CEO, SeeqPod Inc. “We look forward meeting with, and exchanging ideas among fellow innovators in terms of what is ahead for the company, industry and the way digital content of all types is discovered and monetized.”
Aside from accepting this year’s award, Kasian Franks has also been asked by AlwaysOn to deliver one of the keynote addresses to this year’s attendees. Franks, an expert in biomimetic search and discovery technologies, will be participating a discussion on the future of Content Delivery Platforms, led by Ezra Roizen, Contributing Editor, AlwaysOn Networks. The CEO Showcase will be held on Tuesday, June 10th in Ballroom II at 9:45 AM. Other participants include Alex Castro, CEO & Founder, Delve Networks (formerly Plugged Inc), Brad Barnes, CEO, True Anthem, and Gary Sohmers, CEO, MeetandGreet.tv.
