The sixth TECH cocktail in Chicago took on the Windy City last Thursday evening to bring together over 500 guests for another installment of the event series. In case you are unfamiliar, TECH cocktail is a series of mixer events, founded by Frank Gruber and Eric Olson, opened to bloggers, technology enthusiasts and entrepreneurs interested in the technology arena in under served tech communities like Chicago, Boston and Washington, DC among others.
The event which looks to “amplify the technology signal and have fun doing it” certainly took a step in the right direction by showcasing the following startups:
42 Friends, LLC – Facebook apps like “Growing Gifts“, “Goals” and many more
Cappex – a safe and effective tool for college students to connect the right college or university
Dawdle – a gaming marketplace where buyers are hooked up with sellers of used video games, systems and accessories
PropertizeMe.com – online property management system
SeatQuest – a soon to launch ticket search engine that virtually shows you your seats
Songza – slick web music search engine and player created by Humanized
ViewPoints.com - personalized online review system
Waves.TV – a video platform for web cam vlogging in a matter of seconds
Aza Raskin demos the new music search and player Songza.
The event was sponsored by Centro, Carepages, Athena Optimus Solutions, SingleHop, ChicagoMicro, myAOL, Interactive Mediums, Saper Law, Fiodan Corp., SitterCity, NUDirection Consulting, MK Capital, Origin Ventures, SeatQuest, Frost, Ruttenberg & Rothblatt, P.C. and Hinshaw & Culbertson.
