I’m opening the books tonight on my company, SocialToo. I’ll be presenting tonight at Launchup, an event compared to be a “community barn raising for entrepreneurs”. The event happens every couple months and has featured such Utah companies as TodaysMama (whom I am an Advisor) and Entice Labs. The idea is to allow each company a short time to present (I have 7 minutes), expose themselves in as transparent a manner as possible, then let the community ask questions and provide advice and help in helping that business grow.
Tonight I’ll be sharing all the details most businesses won’t share about themselves with SocialToo – yes, it’s a risk, but I am a big believer in transparency. You’ll hear about how many users we have, how much revenue we’re bringing in per month, where I see our weaknesses and strengths to be, etc. I’ll show you a demo about how you can get set up with a SocialToo account and DM spam filters for Twitter in under 2 minutes with just the click of a button.
This week Launchup will also start bringing these entrepreneur features to the world with Ustream. You can watch anywhere in the world on Ustream at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/launchup or on the main website at http://www.launchup.org/live. The event starts at 6pm, and will also feature presentations by MuseBuzz and PageMass (which I got a demo of yesterday – I think bloggers are going to like this one). Launchup is organized by Jeremy Hanks, CEO and founder of Doba.com, another Guy Kawasaki Advisorship company (as is SocialToo). Come join and say hi!
You can read a brief Q&A I did for them at http://www.launchup.org/2009/11/09/socialtoo-qa/.
