TIS Finalists for the Startup Showcase at O'Reilly Web 2.0
AUSTIN, TX, August 15, 2010. WanderID, the first product from Tactical Information Systems has been accepted into the Web 2.0 Expo Startup Showcase. The showcase is designed to highlight the creativity and variety of the startup scene and give the conference attendees a chance to see the newest Web 2.0 companies entering the market.
Twenty five startups were selected and will demo in one big room for an hour. The crowd circulates – changing tables every five minutes following a chime in a format reminiscent of speed dating. At the end of the hour, Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Media Inc. and Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures will each announce their choice for top company and one will be selected by an audience vote. The three startups will be invited to give their pitch on-stage and do a question and answer session in front of the audience with Tim and Fred.
