Welcome to the Jungle – 2018 Coolest Companies Revealed

0

Skydiving altimeter app Dekunu walked away with the title of Anthill’s “Coolest Company 2018” at the 14th annual Cool Company Awards on Thursday 21 February.

The purpose of Dekunu is to give skydivers x-ray vision, eyes-in-the-back-of-their-heads and other awareness-related superpowers, in a bid to make skydiving safer, more connected and roundhouse-kick flight progression into the 21st century.

It does this by turning 1s and 0s into actionable data on your wrist. A plethora of gyroscopes, magnetometers, barometers, and GPS sensors track every movement, direction and decision.

It provides real-time speed, heading and altitude, post-jump statistics for quick-review, supported by a game-changing Cloud platform with 2D/3D vision.

But what makes a company “cool”? According to Anthill founder James ‘Wild Thang’ Tuckerman, “cool” companies are “remarkable” companies.

In other words, they are worthy of being talked about.

“They can be amazing, innovative, one-of-a-kind,” said Tuckerman. “They can be all those things. But what sets cool companies apart is that they are, by their very nature, worthy of being ‘remarked’ about.”

The “Jungle” themed night, held at Richmond Co-Working Space Launchpad, crowned winners across 12 categories.

And the WINNERS are…
