1. Netvibes: Netvibes is a custom made web 2.0 home page solution. This free service lets users create a personalized page with the content they like, put together data feeds and services from web 2.0 with a very simple interface and gives you access to your page anytime and from any computer .
2. Zooomr: Zooomr is a photo sharing application focused on helping you explore photos from the inside out no matter what language you speak. With Zooomr, photos are no longer just photos — they are emotions, ideas, and stories meant to be shared and explored.
3. Like.com: Like.com is the first true visual search engine, where the contents of photos are used to search and retrieve similar items. Like.com was created to solve the challenge of finding “the perfect you” for a broad range of aesthetic and soft goods.
4. Prosper:Prosper is a person-to-person lending marketplace, where individual borrowers can request loans from individual lenders, providing rates better than those offered by banks to both parties. Learn about the site where over $23 million in loans have traded hands already.
Each company will begin with a short one to two minute pitch and then you’ll have the opportunity to view a short demo at the company’s table. Demos will start every ten minutes to enable you to switch between companies and get a taste of each.
We’ll have the entire place for our event and each company will have a table all to themselves. There will be a cash bar available throughout the night. Feel free to invite your colleagues in the tech community! We look forward to seeing you there.
If you’d like to demo or if you have any questions, contact us.

Previously we had said that Tech Connection would become an invitation-only event to help make sure we had a great event just for the tech community. Unfortunately people misunderstood our intentions – a free event open to everyone in the tech community (entrepreneurs, developers, journalists, investors) and its service providers (PR, marketing, lawyers, etc.) – so we will continue with our open registration format. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
