Last night was Launch Party, an event organized by Startup Edmonton. We had a blast showing off fotojournal and talking with visitors and other local companies. There was great music, food, and even free margaritas sponsored by Yardstick Software.
The turnout was spectacular — roughly 250 people attended, in addition to the investors and media. Here are the other companies that participated last night:
- Empire Avenue
- Mailout Interactive
- Seek Your Own Proof
- Yardstick Software
Rob and Lauren snagged some awesome photos and even managed to create a time-lapse video of the fotojournal table.

A huge thanks to the organizers Mark, Cindy, Cam, and Ken (not pictured below) for putting together such a high-class event. Startup Edmonton is doing a great job of connecting the local entrepreneurial community, and we’re really looking forward to the next event!
