Feature Friday – Canvas + SVG support

| categories: Blog, FeatureFriday, quality, tips, usecase

Last week we introduced support for web sharing PDF files. This can be very useful when you want to share a document with someone remotely.

To improve Surfly even more, we’ve now also added full support for Canvas and Scalable Vector Graphs (SVG)!

This will allow you to share interactive graphs with your remote colleagues or clients, draw something in online drawing application or even play online web based games.

The video below shows how great this works!

Only a few more days and the South by Southwest Festival will start. As one of the finalists of the Accelerator competition, we’re very excited that we will be pitching Surfly on March 8.

Out of more than 500 applications, only 48 startups were selected as finalists for the competition. We were wondering who these other finalists were and where they came from.

Although most of the finalists are from the USA, Europe also has its share: the Netherlands even has two startups in the competition.

Take a look at our infographic to find out about the finalists of the 2014 SXSW Accelerator.

We’ve also created an infographic of the finalists in the previous years of the SXSW Accelerator (2009–2013).

As one of the finalists of the South by Southwest Accelerator, we are excited that we will be presenting Surfly this coming March in Austin. Not every year is a startup from the Netherlands nominated for this event… or perhaps it is?

There seemed to be no clear list of all the previous finalists, so we decided to collect the data ourselves. While gathering the data, we came across some interesting information about previous finalists. Did you know that most of the winners of the Accelerator come from the USA? The only two winners that where not USA based came from the UK and Finland.

The fact that only three European startups have won the competition thus far and that until 2013 there have been only two Dutch nominations, made us even more enthusiastic. We are looking forward to presenting Surfly in a 2-minute pitch at the Hilton Austin downtown on Saturday, March 8.

To share the collected data and interesting facts with you, we put everything into a great infographic.

We’ve also created an infographic of the finalists of the 2014 SXSW Accelerator.
