Our first Washington, D.C. MOBILE TECH cocktail mixer event is scheduled for tonight, on Cinco de Mayo and we just wanted to share a quick preview. 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. The event looks to better connect, educate and amplify the local mobile technology community and will have six local mobile focused startups on hand demping 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 gone artistic
Ringio – cloud-based rich calling service
The Eats Network – multiple restaurant listing focused iPhone application
Tweetion – Twitter iPhone application
viaPlace – location based registry services
WhereMark Connect – social location-based services

Windows Phone 7 Series

The event is presented by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series and we are thankful for Microsoft’s sponsorship and support of the D.C. mobile technology and entrepreneurial community. The new Windows Phone 7 Series device first previewed just a few months ago and is yet to hit the market but you can find out more about it at: windowsphone7.com also if you are developer and would like to start exploring the totally new development platform please visit MSDN’s Developer Channel for WP7.

Watch the video below for a preview of the Windows Phone 7 series features.


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

Join us this evening of fun mingling with other mobile technology enthusiasts, VCs, bloggers and entrepreneurs as we host our first MOBILE TECH cocktail event in DC.
