The judges have chosen and 8 companies have been selected to demo at LPV8, 5 from Vancouver, 2 from Seattle and 1 from Kelowna.

As usual, we’ll feature each of the companies in a 2 min video and give you the chance to vote on which is most likely to succeed. Voting will begin starting Saturday, September 5th.

We advocate an “Open-Source Creative” approach with transparent pricing, processes, and direct links to the people we work with.
