New Media BC announces top Venture Pitches

In light of our Venture Forum week, I thought I would post this interesting story for you all:

New Media BC is pleased to announce the top 20 companies selected from 37 digital media companies that attended the Fusion ’09 Entrepreneur Boot Camp held at the BC 2010 Showcase Centre.

Notably, A Vancouver company, has made the top 20 list for educational gaming sites.

See this story in the North Shore News:

EcoBuddies encouraging kids to take action

“EcoBuddies has also been recognized by their peers, having been awarded best in show at New Media B.C.’s Fusion Venture Forum for Digital Media, held two weeks ago in Vancouver. They were among the entrepreneurs who pitched their companies to investors.
“It’s a really great networking tool, for both investors and for entrepreneurs,” says Ferma.
The title came with $1,000 and a three-month placement at the Plug and Play Tech Centre accelerator in Sunnyvale, Calif.”

I asked my son to try out ecobuddies but when i put in my email address as the parent, i did not get the email so we are unable to take a look at it.

Barbara I was able to use the website right away (after registering), without waiting for the email confirmation. My 5 year old just started trying out the website yesterday and really likes it. It seems much like a webkinz (without having to buy the stuffies) or My Sims type game. She is really excited about it, so it seems to offer her more enthusiastic activities than either of those other two websites. I will look at it more when my workload declines…
