Eagle Speak was one of four companies featured in the first cohort of The eFactory’s Accelerator program. Since completing the program, the team has aggressively worked to expand the Eagle Speak platform and grow their user base. To refresh our memories, Eagle Speak is a desktop communication and collaboration platform unlike anything currently on the market. It allows the user to use a simple voice command to create an instant audio connection to talk verbally with clients, customers, or colleagues, as well as the ability to share files, take screenshots, and initiate live screen sharing sessions, all without ever leaving the application that the user is working in.
Eagle Speak began at Springfield’s Startup Weekend (Powered by Google for Entrepreneurs) where they developed and deployed the first prototype of their voice-activated communication software winning both First Place and the Audience Choice Award. What started out as an inventive proof-of-concept has evolved in to full-fledged communications & collaboration platform for businesses.
Eagle Speak has repeatedly been recognized for their innovation and outstanding work in technology. Last year they were nominated by AITP as one of the region’s Most Innovative Startups. They went on to win the grand prize at SPIN66’s Annual Innovation Summit taking home over $10,000 in prizes before being chosen for The eFactory’s inaugural accelerator cohort.
They have made waves in Springfield with their passion and involvement in growing the local tech & entrepreneurship communities actively contributing to groups such as the Mid-America Technology Alliance, Startup Weekend, SPIN66, The eFactory Accelerator, the Hack4Good Charity Hackathon, the AITP, and many others.
The new year is barely underway but Eagle Speak has already been nominated for three 2017 AITP Biz417 Excellence in Technology Awards including: Most Innovative Startup, Best Software Application, and Engineer of the Year Award.
Eagle Speak has just announced their largest single update to the Eagle Speak platform since the beta program began. The update, code-named “Raptor”, brings huge improvements to Eagle Speak’s voice recognition services, introduces new collaboration features, performance enhancements, as well as a completely new in-app user feedback system.
The company’s founders are currently in their next funding round and gearing up for a full-scale commercial rollout of Eagle Speak later this year.
