Startup Edmonton is holding its' second Launch Party at the Enterprise Square Art Gallery (10230 Jasper Avenue) next Wednesday, November 17. We had the opportunity to get a sneak peak at the companies that will be launching next week at the event. We asked each company to give their "elevator pitch". Here is what they had to say.
Photography and visual art are amazing mediums. They immediately communicate stories, share emotions and inspire ideas. But sometimes it's hard to get your work out to an audience, especially online. The internet is a big place, and building a website can be a daunting task.
That's where Parade comes in. We wanted to help spread the great stories and inspiring ideas, so we created an affordable product with great designs that allows you to instantly get your work online and easily manage your website, anytime anywhere... so your can spend your time doing what you do best: creating more for us to see.

Robot Rhythm targets restaurants/bars/shops with the aim of providing them a better selection of music and allows the customer to interact with their music. It could be thought of as a Jukebox 2.0 allowing customers to vote on music they would like to hear. We provide this information to the locations so they can better tailor their musical brand to fit the demands of their customers and staff. Music also has a heavy influence on the way a brand is perceived. With experience in both music and the hospitality industry we can help clients realize this potential.
