Canadian Venture Forum Wrapup - Part 2

In this post, I wanted to share some photos and a video clip of the companies I saw who had the most interesting offerings for the IP commmunications market. There were a few others doing IP things as well, but these are the ones that stood out the most for me - in addition to the ones I posted on Thursday.

Before getting to those, though, a couple of photos first about others worth noting from the event...


Sean Wise of Wise Mentor Capital, the uber-force behind the event - and the keeper of the Cups.

And now, for those who I liked the most. I'd be happy to tell you more about what they do - just drop me a line.


Patricia Tessier of Voxlib, Bill Tam of EQO Communications

Ross Jeffery and Ian Hochberg of Zonez Wireless, Right - their magic box

Arnold Augustin of Hakai Networks ("Dristan for the cable guys"), Right - Barry Fogarty of Diginiche - see video clip below for more

Finally, here's a video clip I took with my Nokia N90 of a demo that Barry gave me of Diginiche, which is a full scale collaboration platform. Of all the things I saw at the show, I thought this was the most compelling. Have a look for yourself - the video tells the story really well.

Quick aside - I hope you watch the whole clip (it's about 3 minutes). Just as I'm signing off, Barry comments about having "phone envy" over the N90. Gotta love that! I get that A LOT when people see this thing.

Jon,

Wow, I've never been called an UBERforce...but I kinda like the sound of that.

Glad you attended and enjoyed CVF 2006. Here's something I'd love your opinion on:
