If I worked for cVidya, I am not sure how I would react to the news that they came tenth whilst competing for their latest award. They made it into the top ten, but would they be keen to have customers think of them as a ‘start-up’? The story was announced in Globes, sponsor of the Journey 2009 conference. Coming tenth is not bad, but cVidya is getting a little old to be described as tenth in a list of promising start-ups. The company was established in September of 2000, meaning they can enjoy a double celebration this month: 10th most promising start-up, and their 9th birthday ;)
