)-- Tim Donnelly, SoftVu president and founder, was chosen by the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation (KTEC) to attend the DEMO Conference in San Diego, CA, September 24-26, 2007, along with four other technology entrepreneurs in the Charter Class of the KTEC PIPELINE, Kansas’ cutting edge technology entrepreneurial fellowship program. KTEC is a private/public partnership established by the state of Kansas to promote technology-based economic development.
DEMO is the premier launch venue for new products, technologies and companies. The conference has established a reputation for identifying and presenting to an elite audience the products most likely to have a significant impact on the marketplace and market trends in the coming year. Tim will hear others present and be able to meet with significant media members, venture capitalists, and top trend spotters in the personal technology product industry.
Dozens of demonstrations will be featured never before seen publicly. DEMO seedlings that sprouted beyond the start-up phase include Palm, TiVo, and Skype. The conference is considered the premier launch pad for emerging technologies.
“This is a great opportunity for SoftVu to connect with other entrepreneurs in the technology field,” said Tim. “Corporate shoppers are always in attendance. Past DEMO Conferences have been attended by Google and Yahoo representatives in search of the next great entrepreneurial invention. The event attracts prominent members of the press and venture capitalists from all over the nation who are looking for the next technology trends.”
