Yesterday, we had our first Israeli Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure Demo Day, and it went off quite well. The Next Web's Alex Wilhelm wrote a spot on what he thought were the three coolest companies pitching their products.
The Israel program accepted 11 companies in its first class, out of more than 100 applications. Teams of 2-4 people were preferred, and while no cash was provided, each company was given office space, access to advisors, and other perks, not to mention a short line to Microsoft and its Azure product. In the next class, a $20,000 convertible note will also be offered.
Of the eleven, Alex picked out MediSafe, RotaryView, and Stevie for special mention. We covered them here yesterday. Those links take you to personal interviews with each of the founders for those companies.
