With over 425 tickets sold, TECH cocktail Chicago 11 is lining up to be another super event. We cannot believe it is our 11th event in Chicago, it seems like just yesterday we were hosting our first event at State in Lincoln Park. I guess time really does fly when you are having fun.

We are excited to have 10 solid start-ups demoing at the event which include:

BringIt allows gamers from across the world to compete in video games for cash and prizes.

iLime a solution for integrating Apple iPhone push notification service and in app purchases into your iPhone applications.

indieCollision a platform that empowers music fans to discover new music from independent & unsigned artists.

Hot Tweeters – a Twitter application that uses profile photos to compete with other members in a “hot or not” style format, where fame and fortune are the major prize.

ProOnGo a mobile expense reporting tool.

Thinklinkr a real-time, collaborative outlining tool.

TweetVisor is a Web-based Twitter dashboard.

Northwestern University’s InfoLab has also produced a trio of new products which include:

StatsMonkey, a system that automatically generates baseball stories off of numerical data.
Manatee Comics, a system that automatically generates web comics.
News at Seven, a system that automatically generates a broadcast news show.
