Moonfruit at Geek n Rolla
It’s been a pretty busy week here at Moonfruit HQ. I went to the popular Geek n Rolla event run by TechCrunch Europe on Tuesday, which went ahead despite the chaos caused by the volcano, Eyjafjallajokull. It was held in the glamorous Park Plaza hotel in Waterloo and despite the air disruption, had a fantastic turnout.
The day consisted of presentations, startup pitches and a demo pit. Talks on the day included Morten Lund (Skype), Andrew J Scott (Rummble) and Ewan Mc Leod ( Mobile Industry Review) who were my personal favourites as well as various Venture Capitalists and other successful entrepreneurs sharing their tips on how to be successful. The pitching event was won by Cortexica who are provide a platform for "Visual Search products that deliver exciting new experiences and value for consumers and businesses." Other startup’s pitching included Decibel, iGlue and SongHi who were very well received. Overall the day a great success. The food during the breaks was delicious and there were lots of people walking around with our lovely Moonfruit button stickers which is always nice to see :)
The rest of my week has been spent researching new and fun ways to interact with the community. Don’t forget, if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them. Please email me with your thoughts, ideas and general feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org – We also have some great new features coming up in the following months, so stay tuned to the Moonfruit Lounge for the latest info!
Next week I will be at Internet World at Earls Court. Leave me a message if you'll be there :)
Have a great weekend!
