The EZ-EV Open Source Electric Kit Car This will be a very simple-to-assemble three-wheel all-electric kit car that anybody could build and maintain.

Small-business funding platform Kabbage wins CloudBeat’s Innovation Showdown Seven companies presented on stage today, but only one won CloudBeat 2012′s Innovation Showdown. That was Kabbage, a small-business funding platform that uses cloud power to connect companies with cash. “The average business has grown by 266 percent since they’ve started using us,” Rob Frohwein, CEO and co-founder of Kabbage, said on stage during his presentation.
