On the presenting companies:
"Xobni is a San Francisco-based startup, created in 2006. We offer a unique and intelligent way to manage and search your contacts and email through Outlook and on the BlackBerry - because we believe that people spend too much time searching unsuccessfully for conversations, attachments, and other important information in their inboxes."
"Your professional network of trusted contacts gives you an advantage in your career, and is one of your most valuable assets. LinkedIn exists to help you make better use of your professional network and help the people you trust in return. Our mission is to connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful."
"Lookout is a mobile security company dedicated to making the mobile experience safe for everyone. Today, with users across 400 mobile networks in 170 countries, Lookout is a world leader in smartphone protection. Every month, Lookout blocks thousands of malicious applications, finds countless lost phones and restores important information that our users thought they'd never see again."
"Expensify does "expense reports that don't suck!" If you're sick of the painful expense reporting process, Expensify is the fastest and easiest way to manage it. Expensify imports expenses and receipts from 82% of U.S. smartphones and 94% of U.S. credit cards and lets you submit everything through email and get reimbursed entirely online."
