New Ventures BC Award Winners

Posted by Rob Lewis

New Ventures BC doled out $135,000 in prize packages at tonight's award ceremony and two of the top three businesses caught my eye.

TeamPages Inc. is a new online social network for amateur sports teams and took a $38,000 prize package back to BC's capital city. League administrators, coaches, parents, an athletes can use TeamPages' online tools to set up free sports team and league websites. They can post game and event schedules, arrange carpools and volunteer schedules, track game scores and records, email team members with just one click and post news and announcements to a message board. Athletes can also use the system to build their resume over time.

Bean Services offers a secure online system for digitizing bills and then managing them online and can now afford to pay a few of their own after winning the 3rd place $17,000 prize package. Using Bean's browser-based technology, businesses simply scan, upload, fax or email their bills to Bean Services, which captures the details and store them. Staff can then search, report, export, allocate, approve or email them. The information can also be exported directly into an existing accounting or payables systems.
