SnowShoe

CEO: Claus Moberg

Wisconsin may not be the first place that jumps into your mind when you think about technology startups, but Madison, Wis.-based SnowShoe has developed a small device used for authenticating cloud-based mobile transactions. The company has opened its APIs to the developer community, which has already begun experimenting with the device to execute a variety of functions, using Java and PHP. One application, which was demonstrated at a conference in San Francisco earlier this year, involved use of the device to authenticate authorization to pass through electronically locked doors.
