Oct 2015 Brilliant Lab Startup Roadshow In Madrid South Summit, Spain.


Kuwaiti startup accelerator Brilliant Lab has just announced the 3 winners of its 5th startup competition.

The winners will be showcased at the South Summit in Madrid (Spain) from October 7 to 10, 2015, and is sponsored by Google for Entrepreneurs.

Meet the Winners

In this edition, Brilliant Lab received over 20 applications from early-stage startups who had just launched their products or were still in their prototype stage. Here are the 3 winners:

1. Boxit 

Boxit is an innovative physical storage space idea based on a pay-per-use model. Instead of paying for a full space – regardless of how much they fill it – customers pay only for the space their items use up. This idea has its roots in the modern IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud model. The Boxit app allows customers to manage their storage with an online photo catalogue, and also request pickup and delivery of items.

2. Bookr

The Bookr app is a handpicked directory of the best wellness providers in Kuwait. It allows both subscribed and new customers to book appointments, purchase memberships, or buy prepaid packages. For wellness businesses, the Bookr cloud-based store management system helps venues manage their workflow and customer relations with built-in analytics and advertising tools. 

3. Bubble Rumble:

This free-to-play action game pits players against each other in a battle to collect the most balloons.Bubble Rumble is available for free on Google Play and also proposes in-game purchases.
