Launch@Grow Highlights from #Summify

Team Summify - Launch@Grow 2011

Team Summify (minus Mircea)

We have lift off. Last week’s Launch@Grow launch party to the 2011 Grow Conference celebrated the blast-off of 15 of Canada’s top early stage startups, as chosen by Canadian and Silicon valley judges.

With a fashionably late arrival, Team Summify setup shop quickly and got ready for an evening of mingling. Thanks to Bootup, beer, bunnies, and a little foosball, a great time was had by all. Here’s the highlight reel:

Foosball: Summify vs A Thinking Ape
Nim represents for Summify in @athinkingape‘s foosball tournament, and Urbandig brings a party bunny.

Our favorite part was mixing with everyone and getting to talk with current and potential new Summifyers. It’s always interesting to see how people react to our value proposition, and it’s even nicer to talk to loads of people who already use and love the service.

Summify was among the four winning startups chosen to pitch to Silicon Valley Angels and VCs at Under The Radar on Day 2 of the Grow Conference. Cristian Strat stepped up to pitch Summify to the high-caliber tech judges; some of which are already active Summify users. He had a great experience and we would like to thank you for your valuable insights and tough questions:

Wesley Chan, Investment Partner Google Ventures

Jeff Clavier, Founder and Managing Partner SoftTech VC

Rob Hayes, Managing Partner First Round Capital

Lars Leckie, Partner Hummer Winblad

Eghosa Omoigui, Founder EchoVC Partners

Aydin Senkut, Founder and President Felicis Ventures

A congratulations is also in order to the promising companies who joined us to pitch on Day 2: Unbounce (pitch winner), Tiipz and Rocketr. Great work!

Mircea with Dave from Hootsuite
Dave from Hoosuite is so cool that someone made a cardboard cut-out of him. We’re big fans of Hootsuite and @daveohoots so we got in on the action. Be sure to check out his Vancouver, BC craft beer tour on Urbandig.

From the launch party to the after party – as if @dannyrobinson hasn’t got enough of us, he made Mircea swallow some helium and attempt to pitch Summify again. Romanian helium accents are fantastic.

    no assurance that these drops will help that unwanted weight stay off.
