Akoha is a Montreal-based startup that's been running stealth for some time now. Their site is very vague on what it is, but the words "community" and "play" are used a lot. Whatever it is, they certainly impressed TechCrunch and were selected as a finalist to present on stage at the TechCrunch50 conference, happening now in San Francisco. They'll be presenting tomorrow, September 10, during the Games session sometime between 10:30 - 11:45 PDT. You can tune in and watch; the whole conference is being streamed live via uStream.
Tomorrow before their pitch, they'll be distributing Akoha "starter kits" to the audience. As a special promotion for Techvibes readers, Ahoka has provided us with a link to their store where you can get one of these starter kits shipped to you for free. Like the startup, the nature of the kits are a mystery, but who can turn down a mystery box? I know I can't. A limited quantity are available for a limited time, so be quick on the mouse.
