TechCrunch Gets Down with the Midwest

without comments

TechCrunchMike Arrington of TechCrunch was nice enough to run an article Frank wrote about the start-ups that were present at TECH cocktail 2. Many of you know one part of the two part TECH cocktail mission that Frank and I laid out and that is simply fun. The other part of the mission though is the part that Mike helped us with today and that is to tell the midwest/Chicago technology story better.

Frank and I felt we could amplify the signal of the midwest tech scene and have fun doing it and it looks like it’s working out. With a lot of new companies from the Chicagoland area getting some great press on TechCrunch it is only a matter of time (and a few more parties) before the midwest is back on the map in a big way. Congrats to all of the companies that made it out to TC2 and who are now part of a TechCrunch post! We couldn’t have done it without you all.

Side note: Make sure to digg the article if you like it!
