CIX: HomeZilla & Octopz

Posted by Rob Lewis

HomeZilla is a one-stop shop for home buyers to research neighborhoods and homes before they make a purchase. HomeZilla helps home buyers drill down into their target neighborhood and get the information they need to make an educated decision. Where are the elementary and secondary schools? Where can they pick up milk & bread late night?

Octopz Inc. develops online collaboration tools for creative professionals. Octopz's fully integrated support for text messaging, VoIP and webcams allow users to work together securely in real-time or individually at their own convenience. Collaborators can archive their work for subsequent retrieval, review and feedback. The result is accelerated decision making and speed-to-market.

The company has built a secure and extensible collaboration platform with an initial primary focus on the Marketing/Advertising, Media/Entertainment, and Product Design verticals. CEO & Presenter Ron McKenzie's pitch was slick and impressive. Not a surprise that Octopz has received some interest to date - Webware 100 Finalist, Deloitte Fast 50, Branham Top 25 Up and Comers, etc.
