Auxbus Named a Top Ten Startup to Watch

Auxbus has been named a Top Ten Startup to Watch by the NC Tech Awards. The NC Tech Awards is North Carolina’s only statewide technology awards program that recognizes innovation, growth, and leadership in the tech sector. This award is presented by North Carolina Technology Association (NC TECH).

Last month, Auxbus introduced its podcast creation software. The web app enables novice creators to quickly and easily create high-quality audio content through a suite of proprietary guidance and automation technologies.

Auxbus eliminates the pain of dealing with multiple piecemeal tools, encompassing all the steps of planing, recording, one-button voice adjustment, adding music, episode assembly and automatic distribution to Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and more. More than 1,000 users have created accounts, and they have given Auxbus 4.81 out of 5 review in its first 45 days.

“For over 20 years, NC TECH has celebrated companies, organizations and individuals for outstanding achievement at the NC TECH Awards. As a finalist this year, Auxbus has distinguished itself as one of the state’s innovative and emergent leaders,” stated Brooks Raiford, NC TECH’s President and CEO.

The awards process culminates with the NC TECH Awards Gala on November 21, 2019, at the Raleigh Convention Center where 800+ businesses, technology and public leaders from across the state will gather to celebrate the tech sector and honor the winners and finalists in each category.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Top Ten Startup to Watch by NC TECH,” said Auxbus founder and CEO, Dan Radin. “It’s incredibly rewarding to be selected among all of the amazing tech startups in North Carolina.”
