The 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2013


HeyWire

CEO: Meredith Flynn-Ripley

Holding firmly to the belief that the bulk of business messaging tools on the market today are straight out of the 1990s, HeyWire this year unveiled an enterprise-focused version of its flagship mobile messaging service.

The cloud-based service lets users text-enable their business landlines, eliminating the need for them to give out their personal phone number for any colleagues or clients who prefer to text, rather than call. The service works by entering the users' business line into the HeyWire cloud, and then redirecting all text messages sent to that business landline to a smartphone, tablet or PC. The user can then use any of those three devices to respond to the sender.

HeyWire in December also unveiled its first formal partner program, which lets solution providers whitelabel and embed their own corporate brand into the HeyWire service.
