Seven for LPV7 announced

Posted by Rob Lewis

Launch Party Vancouver has announced the startups selected to demo at their upcoming LPV7 event and this time around there are seven. Another twist in the formula is that two out-of-towners are in the mix with Foodista making the trek North from Seattle and Tynt Multimedia crossing the Rockies from Calgary.

Our locals will be in tough as both Foodista and Tynt have been recently funded, proving that they know how to pitch. Foodista scraped together $500K from Amazon and some Angels and Tynt went big with a $5 Million round led by iNovia Capital.

Here's the complete lineup:

  • Foodista
  • LetsGoForDinner.com
  • Muutu
  • Wantsa
  • Protagonize
  • MakeGood
  • Tynt Multimedia

As always, Strutta will be powering the voting site - look out for it to go live on this Saturday morning.
