Two more Canadians among fbFund Grant winners

Posted by Rob Lewis

David Crow just pointed out on his blog (thanks to Albert Lai) something that I missed earlier - three of the five Facebook fbFund grant winners announced yesterday are Canadian. I had incorrectly reported that only one, Kontagent, had a Canadian connection. The turns out HitGrab and WedSnap also made the cut and collected US$250,000 as well

  • HitGrab - MouseHunt, a HitGrab creation, is a game of epic proportions. Players are hunters, hired by the king to trap mice that infest his kingdom. For each mouse caught, users will find a reward, bringing them closer to being the best MouseHunter in the land.
  • WedSnap - WedSnap created Weddingbook, a social network on Facebook for those preparing for a wedding. Brides and grooms meet on Weddingbook to get advice, support, and inspiration during their engagement and wedding planning process.

HitGrab is based in Burlington and call themselves a premier social game company - this fbFund win certainly will help them justify the 'premier' tag. Toronto-based WedSnap provides web applications to the wedding industry. Congrats to all the Canadian winners.
