I wanted to follow up after last night's 3rd #OnStage and, at least for me, by far the most successful by far!
We had six (6) real estate technology companies demo their offerings, and frankly I was floored by how vibrant and promising
the real estate technology startups are here in the Atlanta region. They included:
The Crowd Favorite
and the Most Viable
for last night were CreativeRoof
and the runner up was GuildQuality
. Congrats guys!
One of the most rewarding aspects
of last night for me as the organizer was when people started asking, during the Q&A, if the presenter would like to partner in specific ways with the questioner which happened several times! There was also a lot of "Have you considered partnering with company X?
" This discussion of partnering out in the open was possible because we focused on one emerging innovation cluster last night and that's exactly the types of result we look for in our #OnStage demo events. I look hopefully forward to some quality business combinations and resulting startup success as a result of last nights event!
May 2010 #Onstage
Looking forward to the next two months, we have a very special #OnStage on May 5th
. We'll not be demoing startups in May but instead a soon-to-be-announced guest speaker that we will run during the day rather than in the evening. This person is not from Atlanta but is at the the center of the startup world
and hosts a blog that gets literally hundreds of comments on his daily posts. I can honestly say that if you are involved with startups in any way, especially related to the web in any way, you will NOT want to miss this #OnStage.
June 2010 #Onstage
we'll be hosting #OnStage for startups in another emerging innovation cluster in Atlanta to demo their offerings; Cloud Computing
. This should be very exciting for the entire tech and startup community so we will likely sell out: RSVP now to reserve your space:
If you have a cloud computing startup, or know of one please (have them) fill out the following form:
Thanks and congrats again to last night's #OnStage attendees, participants and winners, and I look forward to seeing most(?) of you #OnStage next month and the month after.
