Last year MobileCrunch looked at IPSwap, which was focused on connecting consumers with software developers. The shop closed up in December, but now they’re back and in beta as spigit. The site has launched as a platform that provides professional with the ability to showcase new ideas and innovations and in the process build their professional network.
The company hopes to have entrepreneurs and mobile businesses come together, and through a proprietary simulation build and refine ideas. The “spigit simulation” engine captures dynamic feedback feedback, which can be used as a sort of prediction market. This simulation takes the ideas through three stages, with the first two being Incubation and Validation and finally Emergence stage, which includes a virtual stock market. This could be a beneficial service to those small start ups looking for some outside insight. We’ll certainly watch where they go.
