TokBox to Sponsor StartupCamp4 Comms Edition

Norwalk, CT – June 27, 2011 – TMC (News - Alert) and EMBRASE Business Consulting announced that TokBox, Inc., creators of OpenTok, the leading global online video communications platform, will sponsor the fourth installment of StartupCamp, Communications Edition, collocated with ITEXPO (News - Alert) West, Wednesday, September 14 at the Austin Convention Center.

StartupCamp Comms is a fast paced evening that combines rich networking, a high-profile keynote speaker and a unique ‘elevator pitch’ contest between some of the best early stage entrepreneurs the communications industry has to offer. The StartupCamp evening is open to all.

StartupCamp4 in Austin comes on the heels of its biggest event ever; an audience of over 500 industry leaders, potential investors, media and industry influencers gathered in Miami last winter to crown and its young CEO Michael Koetting as the evening’s winner.

OpenTok enables the addition of live video-based interaction into any web property. Incorporating scalable, customizable solutions for enterprises, entrepreneurs and developers through the OpenTok API as well as pre-packaged widgets, anyone with a web presence can harness the power of real-time communications to drive user engagement within their site or service.  

StartupCamp co-founder Larry Lisser (News - Alert) said, “The people at TokBox have continued to demonstrate their commitment to supporting entrepreneurs in the communications arena not only with their support of StartupCamp4 but also with an ever evolving platform that has allowed countless bootstrapped business founders to innovate with video communications.”

“StartupCamp is a hotbed of ideas and enthusiasm, creating an environment where next generation services and concepts can be created,” added TokBox (News - Alert) CEO Ian Small. “The OpenTok Platform supports this environment by giving all the building blocks required for creating web video services. We congratulate TMC and Embrase and look forward to being part of another successful StartupCamp.”
