Highlights from the last 30 days…
We were invited to present at the BCTIA Demo Day with 11 other companies on March 12, 2013. It was a great chance to meet local entrepreneurs and share the stage with some of the best emerging tech companies in BC.
Check out the presentation that won us the Investor’s Choice Award below, and feel free to read about our experience behind the scenes in this guest post on BCTIA’s blog.
On March 15 we hit another milestone – our first time being on TV! ShawTV did an interview with us and one of our customers, Collin Stewart (founder of VoltageCRM), who shared what his experience has been like as a Spokal customer.
Curious what Collin said? Check out the 2 min interview below.
We’re enjoying our new home so far, especially meeting our neighbors: Optigo Networks, Dragonfly Instruments, Inception Sciences, Emberlight Technologies, MedVoxel, PHEMI Health, BeanEvo and a few others.
The water cooler conversations are interesting – last week I met entrepreneurs trying to solve cancer, use a protein to cure arthritis, make sustainable fish food, measure water quality using laser beams, and make products using data from online poker games, and that was all in one afternoon!
