The company estimates it will have $2.4 million revenue this year and is looking to raise $2.5 million in an initial round of venture capital.

Ash Gupte serves as MotoCzysz's interim president.

MotoCzysz beat out the nine other companies that presented at the venture capital conference, Meridian, The Clymb, Pacific Light Technologies, Cloudability, Avado, 4-Tell, OpenSesame, Night & Day Studios and Northwest Analytics.
