Dallas-based Vinli Launches at TechCrunch Disrupt

Vinli is a connected-car platform, and they’re launching TODAY at TechCrunch Disrupt.

“Vinli is a game changer because we have created the  first open-platform for developers that works on over 700 million vehicles around the world. It can make a car manufactured in 1996 smarter than a car manufactured in 2014,” said coFounder and CEO Mark Haidar.

Vinli is based in Dallas, and is currently incubated at Dialexa Labs. Vinli is a device that plugs into your car. It comes with a host of apps that can be downloaded to your smartphone. All of the apps will be available free for download for anyone who purchases Vinli during the pre-sales campaign, which launched today at Disrupt. You can watch their presentation here!

This is the 6th annual TechCrunch Disrupt. The event is comprised of discussions with industry and technology leaders, along with featuring under-the-radar startups who launch at the event. These companies compete in Startup Battlefield, with the winning company bringing home a $50,000 grand prize and the Disrupt Cup at the end of the conference.
