Launch Party Vancouver 6: Rilli and MobifyMe

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last week the Vancouver startup and tech scene met for the 6th Launch Party over at the Uber Lounge at The Landing and Steamworks. Kudos to the organizers for using this great space, there was room to move, check out the demos, grab tasty canapes as they passed by, and chat with many interesting attendees.

The good folk at Strutta brought Launch Party to Vancouver and through events like these we are introduced to the latest and greatest innovations on the web that are happening right here in town. The winners at LPV6 were (People’s Choice) and (Judge’s Choice).

“Rilli is a map-based online and mobile event creation tool for social people, doing real things, in the real world.” Along with an interactive Google Map, Rilli allows you to add and manage events which can even be synced with sites like Facebook or Upcoming. You can comment on events, get feedback, and interact with other attendees.

“We’re launching a new tool called MobifyMe to let webmasters extend their current websites to mobile without developing separate mobile sites.” I’ve been pretty pleased with my WordPress plugin that pretty much runs seamlessly on my site without effort while optimizing it for mobile readers. However, with Mobify you can go beyond WordPress, beyond the iPhone, and tailor your website for a specifically mobile audience – however this customization is best suited for developers and webmasters, not the average user. With Mobify you can strip down the design of your site while adding elements such as a map to your business or special mobile information that will be available for Blackberry, iPhone or any other hand-held.

The next Launch Party will take place at the end of May, check out the website for information on the next batch of presenters.

    Thanks Rebecca for coming out and for all your support. We love doing this event b/c it gives us a chance to discover and promote early stage companies and the entreprenuers, who are working hard to build something great right here in Vancouver.
