Here is a quick rundown of recent awards, funding rounds, exits, and other newsworthy accolades for AWS-powered startups over the past two weeks:
Mobile app search company Quixey, who recently presented at the AWS Mobile Developer Loft Talks event, has confirmed $60 million in new funding. Great work, Quixey team!
Last week Docker acquired Kitematic, an open source interface that gets Docker running on your Mac and lets you control your app containers from a graphical user interface (GUI). Congratulations to both.
Ride-sharing company Lyft has closed a Series E round of funding, which it will use to expand its operation in the US. Nice work, Lyft team!
A big shout out to the SnowShoe team, who won the McDonald’s Pitch Session “Reinventing the Restaurant Experience” at SXSW in Austin last Friday. If you’re in San Francisco, you can see them pitch at the AWS Pop-up Loft on March 24th.
Last week Zuora, a company that provides software that lets customers set up subscriptions for their products, announced an additional $115 million in funding.
