Tech Cocktail Phoenix Social has ended and if you missed it, you missed not only learning about a lot of fun companies that are starting up here in AZ, but also about our growing tech community.  The event provided some of these entrepreneurs an opportunity to pitch in front of a crowd for the first time.  It also allowed many to see, first hand, the incredibly supportive group that came out to encourage those pitching.

Two companies were selected by the team at Tech Cocktail to represent Arizona at the national Tech Cocktail Celebrate event held October 23-25 in Las Vegas.  Those companies are: DucoTrax, a "Cloud based inventory management platform that enables businesses to have the "Right inventory at the Right time" and TheraSpecs, "precision tinted, thoughtfully designed eyewear that filter out the harmful light that causes eyestrain, headaches, and migraines."  Each team receives a Visa gift card to help defray the cost of travel to Las Vegas, a Traklight ID Your IP and IP Vault gift certificate and more.

My Counterpane was selected as the crowd favorite and received a 'startup gift bag' which included a $50 Uber ride credit.


Stay tuned....we're looking at brining Tech Cocktail back in the spring of 2014!
