Touch Technologies visits the Alchemist Accelerator featuring 10 new startups

"At our demo days, we typically have 10 investors for every company that’s up there," Belani boasted in a recent interview, and that ratio seemed true of the crowd gathered at Citrix's Santa Clara conference. "That is a ratio that I don’t think anybody else has, especially with the caliber of the investors."

Two of the most interesting pitches came from Perfect Price, which is a San Francisco company that applied machine learning to finding the right price to charge, and from MindOps, a Santa Clara startup that brings text recognition to mobile devices, Google Glass and more.
