Back already!! TechCafe is putting on our second demo event!! Everyone really enjoyed seeing a few young startups last time, the startups really enjoyed the opportunity to pitch, and of course we loved putting the two groups together!!
So please join us for our (I don't want to jinx it) Quarterly TechCafe Presents...
It is a demo event where we have carefully selected two startups from the community that are early enough in their lifecycle that paying to pitch or demo is outrageous - we are talking ramen eating, consulting on the side, (maybe some friends and family money), but really anything to make their passion happen startups!!
Like all of the TechCafe events of the past - this is a sponsored event, thanks to our friends at Fenwick & West LLP for hosting us and sponsoring!! If you want to support young startups by sponsoring a future TechCafe event please let us know.
We will have three demos from young exciting startups from the area that are innovating in unique ways. These include:
Crowdmap - CrowdMap facilitates team collaboration by providing an iPad and iPhone interface for real-time mindmapping. Changes to your mind maps are automatically synced across devices and instantly synced among collaborators whether you're working in the same room or from another time zone. It's a simple and intuitive tool for sharing and organizing ideas from a lecture, a project or a brain-storming session. Check out CrowdMap for more details and screenshots.
Zebigo.com - Zebigo.com is a web-based dynamic ride share community which matches drivers and riders who are commuting the same way for work, going to events and for one-way trips. Zebigo.com is an innovative new approach to ride share aimed to reduce carbon emissions, alleviate traffic congestion, build a stronger sense of community and help people earn or save money during their regular commute.
Along with one more company that will be named soon.
Each company will have 8 minutes to Demo and 2 minutes for Q&A before we move on. Of course there will be food and drinks on Fenwick's great deck before and after the Demos!! This event is a part of the Seattle Geek Week - if you are coming into town for Geek Week or are a Seattle-lite taking advantage of all the geekery - please sign-up with the Geek Week Attendee ticket!!
