Brisbane start-up Nubis wins investment award

One of 140 applicants to receive by Microsoft and Nokia-funded investment award

Brisbane-based start-up, Nubis, has qualified for an investment award by AppCampus, a mobile application accelerator program managed by Aalto University in Finland, and funded by Microsoft and Nokia.

Nubis is a boutique engineering company which specialises in developing custom technical solutions based on radical innovations. It was established in February 2013 by a team who spent three years together in the research and development department of Indigo Telecom.

In addition to developing its own technologies, the team offers clients skills in converged network infrastructure, corporate IT, telecommunications, database, storage, voice and video, RF, DSP, media and content, and security.

Nubis is one of 140 initial recipients selected by AppCampus from a pool of more than 2500 applicants from across the globe.

It collaborated with the Queensland Microsoft Innovation Centre, which supported the former through the process with AppCampus after several attempts at pitching to Australian investors.

It received the award for its newly-developed Cloud service, Alphega, is an attempt to push augmented reality to the mainstream by turning smartphones into “socioscopes” which visually project the social networking activities taking place around a user.

“We are super excited to help Nubis get its ambitious app to the next level,” AppCampus operations manager, Chris Bouret, said. “Social network is about to be revolutionised and Windows Phone 8 will be the place to look from.”

While Alphega claims to elevate social networking to a new plane, Nubis claims it is only the first radical technology development it describes as “on the scale from highly-disruptive to a complete paradigm shift.”
