Gryphn’s schedule has been packed and for good reason. The Huffington Post along with Startup America selected 60 + entrepreneurs to participate in a startup showcase at the RNC and DNC in Tampa and Charlotte respectively. (The above picture was featured by the Huffington Post of Gryphn’s setup at the DNC)
Some were invited to attend one while others, like Gryphn, were invited to attend both. There is an increasing awareness of the role of startups in job creation by the political establishment, regardless of party affiliation. There is also a parallel recognition on the part of startup CEO’s that, regardless of who might be in power or which party controls government, entrepreneurs create wealth. Period. Ultimately we all want the same thing, and the collective call is to move forward. Appropriately the hashtag for the event was #whatisworking and Gryphn is, indeed, a fantastic example of what is working in America.
Presenting at the Conventions
Our CEO Navroop, in his usual charming style (and conscientiously chosen attire) attracted, not only potential investors and customers but also other entrepreneurs interested in partnerships.
Our presentation displayed previously exposed text messages that led to public embarrassment, loss of office, jobs, appointment, prosecution, and a whole host of other consequences. Some of these text messages were a bit salacious. Understatement. Some of these text messages could make a grown man blush, and, in many cases, they did. Still others contained mundane text on strategy, the exposure of which seemed equally mundane until the messages were put in context and suddenly political maneuvers, jobs and even lives were on the line (examples).
More importantly, we used these texts to demonstrate to celebrities, journalists, investors, political consultants, Congress Persons and their staff, as well as a host of others over 7 days, the value, importance and, in many cases, necessity of ArmorText.
A young woman, after reading through the stack of text messages that have been used to indict politicians and celebrities in a series of court cases, realized that her recent messaging conversations might be used similarly. “Can my text message history be read, even without a warrant?” she asked. Unfortunately in many cases, not even a subpoena is required, illustrating the necessity of ArmorText, not just in enterprise but also for everyone and everyday use in protecting their privacy.
Next up: Navroop Mitter declines to be on the Daily Show, talks to Scott Case about ArmorText for Microsoft and learns to dance the electric slide.
