As you may have noticed, things have been rather quiet here at Archability. The past several weeks have been devoted to rolling out our new look and some new features, but most importantly, we’ve been gearing up for our public launch, which we’re please to announce was last week.
Archability was invited to join a pool of 70 companies – with the passion, fortitude and insanity of launching a startup – to launch at the DEMO Sping 2012 Conference, in Santa Clara, California. This bi-annual event, held at the Hyatt Regency – Silicon Valley, gives startups the opportunity to launch their products in front of an audience of innovators, influencers, investors, and journalists. For us, this is a not only great launchpad but a way to meet other smart, striving entrepreneurs who’ve taken similar journeys. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to have received the golden ticket to DEMO Spring 2012.
The atmosphere exuded at the three day event was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. The crowd was overwhelming in more ways than one. We certainly felt the love during our presentation, and at our demonstration station. Thanks to all who popped by to speak to us and let’s all keep in touch!
Sadly, we didn’t get to do much sightseeing in Silicon Valley, but we did have a lot of fun putting the finishing touches on the new product and practicing the demo that was unveiled to a very receptive audience.
Once on stage we had six minutes to wow the crowd of venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, journalists and tech enthusiasts. We weren’t too sure if a guy with a big cane would walk out and yank us off if we went over our allotted time, so the choice was made to frame Archability within the context of a short personal story.
Here’s how it went:
Let us know your thoughts. We are excited to share what we have. We believe we’ve created a product that widens the accessibility of architectural services. And in doing so, provides where those with these skills can access a steady flow of projects.
We’ve gathered loads of feedback from all of you amazing folk about what you’d like to see, and what you’d like improved. Your opinions are important. We will continue listening and working hard behind the scenes to make Archability more relevant and useful.
“DEMO remains the premier launch pad for new information technology products, presenting carefully vetted, market-changing products to an audience of media, investors, early adopters, market thought leaders, corporate acquirers doing M&A work and senior IT buyers from the enterprise,” says DEMO Executive Producer and VentureBeat Editor-in-Chief Matt Marshall in his Archability invitation to Demo at DEMO.
