We were honored to have a judging seat for the Online Communities and Social Networks track in the 2011 Burrill Business Plan Competition. There was a record number of entrants to this year’s competition, as a 4 year competitor I can tell you that it’s gotten to be a significantly more difficult competition recently!
The keynote speech by Brian Raffel, founder of Raven Software (acquired by Activision) was also great:
he went through how he and his brother got into video game development (I’ll give you a clue, they’re not software developers. . .) and how they’ve grown with the industry through today.
Congratulations to the winners and good luck on your ventures!
