We are in Champaign, Illinois today, home to the University of Illinois, to rally together the local tech community. Champaign is currently home to Wolfram Alpha and it also houses some of the fastest supercomputers the world. Legendary entrepreneur Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Mosaic which turned into Netscape, is a University of Illinois alum along with many others – and we’re surrounded by branches from such notable hi-tech companies as Qualcomm, IBM, Yahoo and more.

The event is being hosted in partnership with the Champaign County Economic Development Corporation and is being supported by Illinois Ventures, Serra Ventures, the Technology Entrepreneur Center at University of Illinois, Singleton Law Firm and University of Illinois Research Park. The event will take place at Houlihan’s within the iHotel in Champaign and will showcase some of the freshest technology startup companies in the area.

The following six startups will be featured at the event as they demo their latest innovations in an expo-style to the tech enthusiast crowd:

ANDalyze – real-time water testing
Caterva (formerly yottaclick) – cataloging the social context of everyone on the web
Eden Park – innovative microplasma lighting
Nuvixa – green screen video conference technology
Merge.fm – platform for bands to engage their fans in the creative process
PrintEco – software that helps reduce printing costs by optimizing your print jobs

If you’re in the Champaign-Urbana area, come join us at tonight’s startup mixer event to enjoy a cocktail, check out the latest startups and let us know what you’re up to! We look forward to seeing everyone there.
