TeamPages wins over coaches, parents, and the media

Posted by Rob Lewis

Techvibes yaletown neighbour TeamPages got an early Christmas present this week after sitting down to chat with the Georgia Straight's Blaine Kyllo about their startup

TeamPages founders Mike Tan and Adam Palmblad sat down with the Straight at an eatery in Yaletown, where their office is located. The two were being followed by a CBC camera crew for an episode of Fortune Hunters that’s expected to air early in 2009.

According to Tan, CEO of TeamPages, the site was inspired by two things: university professors and Facebook. While studying at the University of Victoria, he found it difficult to manage the soccer team he was captaining. His professors used software that helped them send group e-mails to students, and he and his friends had Facebook accounts. Combining the features of the two, he reasoned, would make his job easier.

TeamPages operates under the “freemium” business model. The free version of the site offers basic functions. Teams can pay $54 per year for premium features, more customization options, and the ability to upload more files, or $66 per year for all that and no advertising on their profile.

This Straight coverage wraps up a great year for TemaPages and their soon to be aired profile on CBC's Fortune Hunters will ring in the New Year nicely as well. Check out the
