What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

WOW, what a ride. We have founded Ocean9 only one year ago, on the special date of February 29th, 2016; and now we are already a winner at the very first startup competition we were participating in: The 2017 TiE50 awards.

This is great validation for the team at Ocean9. The event confirmed that the Ocean9 Intelligent Platform for SAP workloads on AWS and Azure is an unique offering with high market relevance for driving enterprise digital transformation. Both our pitch at the startup competition and our conference booth received ample interest. And it feels good to be recognized as being one of the most innovative tech startups worldwide.

What are TiEcon and TiE50?

TiEcon is an annual tech entrepreneurship conference put on by TiE Silicon Valley, a not-for-profit organization in its 25th year. The conference attracts loyal participation from top technology companies, leading venture capital firms, and global service providers. TiEcon 2017 attracted 6,000+ attendees from across the world – including CEOs of established companies to first-time entrepreneurs creating new companies, to leading investment professionals and corporate executives.

TiE50 is integral part of the TiEcon event and Silicon Valley’s premier annual awards program keenly contested by thousands of early-stage technology startups worldwide. TiE50 track record since inception in May 2009 shows that 84% of the winners and Top Startups have been funded, attracting Billions in investments! Many of these companies have been acquired, merged or went public.

TiEcon was listed by Worth Magazine as one of the 10 best conferences for ideas and entrepreneurship along with TED and the World Economic Forum.


The Screening Process

“TiE50 has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide. We screened more than 1,303 companies this year and selected the most innovative 50 companies as TiE50 Winners. TiE50 company presentations were well received at the conference. As a not-for-profit, our vigorous screening and judging adopts multiple regression techniques to ensure process integrity,” said program co-chair Daniel Zimmer.


Personal Summary

Nothing is more important for building a company than networking with fellow entrepreneurs and technologists, potential customers, business leaders, investors and venture capitalists. TiEcon provides all this.

On top, the TiE50 competition provided us the opportunity to benchmark where we stand as a company. And that is priceless …
