WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Image production technology company Live Furnish has received the top award of $25,000 from the Center for Creative Economy’s Velocity Creative Accelerator.
The Live Furnish technology enables the photography process to be reduced, while also reducing the cost by 70% to around $20 per image in an effort to reinvent how home furnishings and textile companies bring their products to life in photographs.
“Our technology has been in development for two years, so Velocity came along at just the right time to help us refine our presentations, allow us to work with mentors in our core industries and kick-start our discussions with investors,” said Preet Singh, Live Furnish CEO.
The company, which started two years ago in New Delhi, India, recently opened an office in Winston-Salem, N.C.
The co-founder of Sightsource, a cutting-edge custom software development and consulting company in Winston-Salem, Balint Gaspar also presented the company with a $5,000 technology services award.
In the Center for Creative Economy’s fourth annual education and seed funding program, 10 creative entrepreneurs completed a nine-week entrepreneur education program that refined their business plans and pitches to investors to be one of only three startups to split a pool of $50,000 in seed-stage investment.
