For the third year in a row, Tech Cocktail was a featured event at Bloomington, IN’s Combine Conference. This three-day conference, which took place September 27-29, brought together creative thinkers from across the country to learn, network and be inspired in college town, Bloomington, an up-and-coming tech hot spot.

Some of the conference’s notable speakers included Ben Huh, CEO of Cheeseburger, Inc., Ari Weinzweig, Co-Founder of Zingerman’s, and Storenvy’s Founder, John Crwaford.

Bloomington’s Tech Cocktail happened on Friday night and featured 11 startups from across the Midwest, including locations in Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Michigan. Featured startups included Adproval, Cause.it, DraftOnce, FoundOPS, ink’d, Ornicept, Phototwine, Snappening, TeamMash, trensy and Vaultworthy.

Attendees were asked to vote for Bloomington’s Hottest Showcasing Startup and Bloomington’s own Ink’d won by a slim 2.84% margin. Currently in development, Ink’d is a platform for web comics that promises to make publishing and viewing easy and convenient for both cartoonists and fans.

Thanks to everyone who joined us. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Combine Conference!
