Early-Stage Communications Startups Invited to Sign Up for StartupCamp

TMCnet News
StartupCamp Comms Edition, a unique forum for early-stage entrepreneurs to pitch their communications products or services to a discriminating audience of potential investors, media, bloggers and industry cognoscenti, has issued an open call for entrepreneurs seeking exposure.

This third installment of StartupCamp Comms Edition, sponsored by TokBox, Inc., creators of OpenTok, to be held Feb. 3 at the Miami Convention Center, is colocated with ITEXPO and is produced by TMC (News - Alert) and Embrase Business Consulting.

The fast-paced, "ready, set, pitch" format of StartupCamp enables five pre-selected early-stage companies to validate their pitches in real time, and network with potential investors and partners. Companies developing products or services that enable or are enabled by communications technologies such as voice, SMS and video will be considered for a "pitch slot."
  • Qualifying companies include those that are:
  • Developing products, services or applications that leverage communications technologies such as voice, SMS and video;
  • Less than 3 years old;
  • Privately or angel funded.
Startups seeking exposure and opportunity are invited to apply online, no later than Jan. 17, 2011. Selected companies will receive, at no cost:

  • Speaking slot at StartupCamp;
  • A video shoot produced and distributed by TMC;
  • Participation in pre- and post show marketing and promotional campaigns, as well as onsite press opportunities;
  • Space in the StartupCamp Pavilion on the ITEXPO exhibition floor.
At StartupCamp in Los Angeles this past October, Cloud Telecomputers (News - Alert) was selected as the overall winner. Cloud Telecomputers Chairman Jim Willenborg noted that "StartupCamp was an amazing opportunity for us to pitch our story. The response to our Android (News - Alert)-based IP telephony solution was overwhelmingly positive, with dozens of potential channel partners and customers resulting from our participation."
StartupCamp 3: Comms Edition is colocated with ITEXPO (News - Alert). Other events taking place at ITEXPO in Miami include: 4GWE Conference; Smart Grid Summit; M2M Evolution Conference; Cloud Communications Summit; Social CRM Expo; SIP Tutorial; VIPeering; Business Video Expo; Digium|Asterisk World; ChannelVision Expo (CVx); and Super WiFi (News - Alert) Summit. 
Companies interested in sponsoring StartupCamp should contact TMC's Joe Fabiano (203-852-6800, ext. 132) or Maureen Gambino (203-852-6800, ext. 109).
