Office hours with Rogers Ventures

I’m still recovering from a very long but very satisfying day yesterday – from the BC Demo Days event that started first thing in the morning, to the dinner with Rogers Ventures that didn’t end until midnight.

The message we sent out to our Startup Notification List had our offices filled with companies giving 10 minute pitches / talks to Mike Lee. Here are the companies that made it through the door:

It was a fun afternoon talking with everyone in the waiting area, and I think the companies all made a good impression (even though Mike was pretty tired after his long day). Some videos from DemoCamp Vancouver 09 will be up early next week. Have a great weekend!
