The standing-room only 2012 Women 2.0 PITCH Conference took place on February 14th and over a thousand people gathered at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View to hear inspiring presentations by entrepreneurs.

Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake and ZipCar co-founder Robin Chase headlined a day full of talent, ideas, networking and world-changing aspirations to innovate with great products.

Four teams walked away with awards from the 2012 PITCH Startup Competition including Montreal's Buyosphere that was named the Most Promising Team.

Buyosphere is a Q&A platform. Ask what you are looking for and the platform will route your question to those who know how to find it. Buyosphere wants to eliminate the confusing experience of searching for products online, and leverages social networking to help you find what is right for you to save you time.

Congratulations to Team Buyosphere that includes Tara Hunt, Jerome Paradis, and Cassandra Girard. And congrats to Canada's own Shaherose Charania and the Women 2.0 team for hosting an amazing event.
