June 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Noodle Selected to Present at Silicon Valley Forum for Top Emerging Technology Startups

New York, NY  — Noodle today announced that it has been selected to present its groundbreaking education search engine service at SVForum’s Launch: Silicon Valley 2012, a highly acclaimed event for emerging technology companies to springboard into the market.

Noodle has developed a first-of-its-kind education discovery engine that combines aggregated data with socially enabled search to help students and families find everything from tutors to schools (K-12, post secondary and graduate) and study abroad programs to guidance counselors. The site includes 120,000 education providers across nearly a dozen academic verticals.

“Like Kayak, Service Magic, and other vertical search tools, Noodle offers consumers and education providers a much-needed tool that is both engaging and immediately useful.  We solve the problem of education search and discovery by curating information from many sources, personalizing recommendations based on a matching engine, and leveraging each user’s social graph,” said COO & CFO Rob Ryman. “We are very excited about Noodle’s launch and we are honored to have been selected to present as a top emerging technology startup at SVForum’s Launch: Silicon Valley."

The event, to be held June 5 at Microsoft’s Mountain View, CA Campus, is designed to uncover and showcase products and services from 30 of the most exciting, newest startups in information tech, mobility, digital media, next generation internet, life sciences and clean energy.

“We are excited to have innovative startups like Noodle present at this year’s Launch: Silicon Valley product launch,” said Chris Gill, President of SVForum Board of Directors.  “Beyond the competition, Noodle will have the opportunity to network with some of Silicon Valley's most influential executives and deal makers as a way to build critical relationships that supports its path forward.”
