Tech Cocktail Boulder mixer and startup showcase took place last night as the perfect ending to the 2008 TechStars Investor and Demo day. We thank Lijit, TechStars and Me.dium for sponsoring the event as we couldn’t do it without your support!
The following 2008 TechStars startups demoed:
App-X – Aimed squarely as VC’s and investors, App-X offers software as a service for venture capital and private equity fund managers and to pensions, endowments and other parties that invest in venture capital and private equity.
BuyPlayWin – BuyPlayWin looks to offer the first tournament marketplace where
users can win items that they plan on buying.
Devver -Devver looks to turn a developer’s desktop tools into cloud-based services. By putting developers tools in a cloud it enables them to execute more quickly, reduce setup and configuration time and enable easy scheduling, reports and make sharing easier.
Gyminee – Gyminee offers a fitness social network for detailed tracking, online accountability and motivation. Users can find workout programs and track progress as well as find other workout buddies online to help them stay motivated.
Ignighter – Offering a group dating site where you and your friends and go out with others and their friends. This could take some of the awkwardness out of a blind date and might be a
fun little group adventure.
Peoples Software – Making plans with your friends might have just gotten a little easier as WhozAround?, a set of tools for planning and scheduling events with you friends. Founded by Susan Mernit, formerly of Yahoo, and Lisa Williams the tools plug into Facebook and your
mobile phone directory making possible to setup events with one click. This startup reminds me a little bit of Plany.pus who has demoed at TECH cocktail in the past.
Occipital – Occipital uses artificial intelligence to help organize your photo stream with a visual interface. This could be very interesting startup that reminds me of Photosynth, a Microsoft product, which presented at the TED Conference.
The Highway Girl – The Highway Girl, is a traveling music show hosted by the founder, singer
songwriter, Samantha Murray. The show aims to sync up with artists and give their behind the scenes story (sort of reminds me of VH1 Behind the Music). The Highway Girl also will distribute exclusive music content on its website.
Travelfli – Frequent Flyer numbers, car rental account rewards, hotel rewards programs all offer travelers ways to cash in for using its service while traveling. Unfortunately, with all these accounts it is sometimes unclear as to what you can do with all your points. Travelfli looks to become a central repository for all these travel related rewards programs as it looks to educate and help travels take advantage of all their travel rewards programs.
