Six Minutes, Do Or Die
A host of startups along with a handful of old hands demonstrated a variety of mobile and cloud applications at this week's Demo Spring 2010, a semi-annual gathering of startups pitching their technology to potential venture and strategic investors.
At Demo, potential presenters went through a long application and vetting process by the show's organizer, VentureBeat. The lucky companies then got a grand total of six minutes on-stage to present their company and products.
It was fast. It was fun. And it was a chance to look at some of what might either be the hot applications of the coming year or the last hurrah of yet another entrepreneur who missed the market.
