Viggo is a slight anomaly on this list because it makes products for the physical world. The Herzliya based - with offices in Amsterdam - startup has developed a Smart TV solution for hotels that source the crowd for reliable real-time information about the local community to create a better experience for the busy business traveler.

Viggo wants hotels to replace heavy TV hardware with a technology that is managed through a cloud-based CMS, giving hotels the ability to customize the TV based on guest preferences.

"Hotels have long had a reputation of being adverse to change. We believe that hotels must emulate the habits of the guest and this means being able to adapt to new technologies. What's more, by embracing disruptive technologies, hotels can find new revenue streams," said Shiri Sivan, Viggo's VP Marketing.

Funding: Viggo is privately funded, but Sivan suggests that expanded operations might require the company to seek external investment during 2015.
