Wieden+Kennedy picks its next raft of tech winners

Wieden+Kennedy’s Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE), which tries to get new tech ventures off the ground, has chosen its next seven lucky winners.

And they are:

1. AppThwack: A service for testing applications and Web sites on real Android phones and tablets

2. KS12: A creative studio that tells stories which blur the line between documentary and fiction, artwork and essay

3. An API that makes analytics available and accessible to any developer

4. Plexus Engine: A tool suite for influencer and expert discovery and engagement

5. Stublisher: A service for capturing and curating event experiences

6. Vadio: A service that turns any terrestrial radio station Web site into live video channels

7. ‘Portland Women’s Software Academy’ project: A nonprofit focused on educating and encouraging would-be software developers

The projects spend three months working at W+K with mentors, W+K clients and other start-up entrepreneurs to prepare pitches to venture capitalists from Portland’s so-called ‘Silicon Forest.’ Previous PIE graduates include VendScreen which raised $12m and Cloudability which raised $8.7m.

Here’s Cloudability’s pitch.
