Join Us As We Focus on Mobile in DC on May 5th

We recently announced our first MOBILE TECH cocktail mixer event in Washington, D.C. will take place on Wednesday, May 5th. In case you are new to our MOBILE TECH cocktail event series, we hosted our first event in January in Chicago, then went on to host another in Barcelona at the World Mobile Congress. With all the mobile application developers, startups and entrepreneurs in the D.C. metro area we are excited at the opportunity to showcase some of them to the DC community. Be sure to RSVP here as space is limited.

We are thankful to have Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series as a sponsor as the device first previewed just a few months ago and is yet to hit the market.

Check out the video demo below.

DC MOBILE App Developers & Startups!!!
MOBILE TECH cocktail offers a handful of mobile app developers and startups an opportunity to show off in an expo-style to the rest of the DC entrepreneurial community for free.  The following will be showcased startups at the event:

QR Arts – QR code development
Ringio – cloud-based rich calling service
The Eats Networks – multiple restaurant listing focused iPhone application
Tweetion – Twitter iPhone application
viaPlace – location based registry services
WhereMark Connect – social location-based services

Connecting Startups and Investors – To continue to add value and stay true to our “cocktail mixer of mobile tech people” theme, we are calling all DC metro area entrepreneurs looking for seed funding or angel investors to fill out this application as we will be trying to help match local startups with local seed or angel investors. If you are an angel investor interested in finding additional deal flow please fill out this form. We know that this type of connection has happened naturally at our events in the past, but we want to help water the seeds a bit and ensure that the fruit of our labor is a better connected entrepreneurial community. Once again, for clarity’s sake:

Startups  – Find Active Investors
Investors – Join the Active Investor List

Connecting the technology community – This exclusive 200+ attendee mobile focused DC mixer event is bound to help you connect with potential new employees, developers, designers, investors and more. MOBILE TECH cocktail could be the place where you meet your next employee, co-founder or even get a date. If you are a company looking to hire, you can also leverage the TECH cocktail job board to get the message out early – or you could sponsor the event and use it as your own personal job fair.
