Best Tech Startup (NYC) | Neverware is the New York-based company behind the CloudReady operating system, which enables schools and businesses alike to enjoy the Chromebook experience they want on the PCs and Macs they already have. Driven by the question, “How can students, teachers and consumers get the experience of using a new, powerful computer without buying one?” - Neverware’s products turn thousands of old computers across New York City schools into powerful, usable machines. At Neverware, shoes are optional. Community and commitment are core values, but so is passion. Fun fact: CloudReady’s development is powered in large part by coffee, Diet Coke, seltzer, beer, and the cheese cubes and hummus that are critical elements of their weekly Fresh Direct order.
