Wired Wednesday TO - #WiredWednesdayTO

Posted by Chris Fyvie

Twitter - #WiredWednesdayTOThere were some great companies, thoughts and insights presented at #WiredWedTO yesterday.

Thanks to RedWire.com (@erin_bury and @sarahprevette) for organizing such a great event!

www.redwirenation.comRed Wire Nation - Through our comprehensive web application, we facilitate networking between entrepreneurs and members of the global business community. We provide users with a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing.

spreedinc.comDavid Coleman got the show off with what I thought was a great presentation... he wasn't so sure at the end of the night but we are always to critical of ourselves.

Spreed Inc - Spreed delivers your existing content to mobile phones and develops unique tools to increase revenue and improve engagement. Awesome App to push content to your I-phone or Blackberry.

Homestars.comBrian Sharwood came next. HomeStars philosophy of providing reviews by the people, for the people is great. This is going to be huge in every industry, particularly for construction. They're on it!

HomeStars.com - HomeStars.com is a growing online community of homeowners and home improvement companies throughout Canada and the U.S. HomeStars offers a free service for homeowners to find reputable renovators, repairmen and retailers by searching its database of almost 2 million companies. Homeowners write reviews based on their home improvement experiences – both good and bad. This builds a collective knowledge base that is invaluable in helping homeowners make better decisions on whom to hire.

www.zoocasa.comSaul Colt has a title that fits well. The Head of Magic and Zoocasa. These guys are going places. If you are a residential agent that hasn't seen this site you are behind the itmes. Watch out MLS.

Zoocasa.com - Our goal in creating Zoocasa is to give all people searching for a home in Canada the ability to easily find homes for sale based on the things they value the most. We think we are on our way to doing that!

www.tripharbour.caStuart MacDonald was the final speaker. I was wondering how the headliner would stack up against the competition. He was fantastic. If he had a title like Saul I would call him the Chief Passion and Ambition Officer (CPAO). Here's his BIO for the Meetup.com site:

Stuart is the CEO and Founder of Tripharbour Limited, operator of Tripharbor.com and Tripharbour.ca, two new, online cruise vacation ecommerce and community sites. Stuart brought Expedia to Canada and started Expedia.ca in his spare room. He ended up moving to Seattle as SVP/chief marketing officer for Expedia.com, as well as running the US packages business. Now back in Toronto, he is a blogger, passionate about what Web 2.0 means for business and society,and a co-founder of the popular mesh technology conference.

TripHarbor.com - was created for cruise vacation fans by cruise vacation fans. Really. Cruise vacation planning used to be somewhat of a trial and error process – that is to say, you went on a cruise, and sometimes you liked it, and sometimes you didn’t. We thought – there has to be a better way. But there wasn’t. So we’ve created one.

Thanks for the great event everyone. Already looking forward to the next one.
