Vancouver's Utherverse was up some strong competitors including Cleankeys and Tagga Media but CEO Brian Shuster tweeted the results during the post-dinner awards ceremony.
Since the launch of its Virtual World Web in September 2009, Utherverse has provided the means for over 37,000 virtual worlds to be created online. Together, the independently developed, interconnected virtual environments form the “Internet in 3D” — a vast network of worlds that embraces social communities, entertainment, commerce, news and events.
Utherverse went to Banff with big plans - to raise $20 Million. The largest amount ever by a virtual 3D technology company. It plans to use the investment funds to execute a wide range of marketing activities including advertising, viral marketing campaigns and event sponsorships.
