Demoing your startup’s new product without PowerPoint is tough. Competing for an award judged by two very experienced CEOs and a highly respected VC is even tougher.Hosted by former TechCrunch co-editor (now current DEMO Conference Exec Producer) Erick Schoenfeld, the inaugural DEMO Mobile in San Francisco had UberConference CEO Craig Walker sitting with Garrett Camp, Founder & Chairman of Uber and StumbleUpon andChi-Hua Chien, General Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. (Yes, the UberConference team are Über users – we get asked that one a lot.)

This year’s mobile-and-productivity class included FieldLens, Tylr Mobile, TouchMail, and Altia Systems, who walked away with a DEMOGod award. UberConference CEO Craig Walker actually launched his previous company GrandCentral (today known as Google Voice) at the Demo Conference in 2006.

It was great being at ITEXPO last week. We met a lot of interesting people at the event and had a great time!

ÜberConference was proud to be a sponsor of StartUpCamp7, a great event for early-stage communications companies to showcase cutting-edge technologies and business ideas. Our CEO, Craig Walker, was one of the judges. He was also part of the panel, The Future of Service Providers – Dumb Pipes or Global Leaders. Here are some pics from the event.

If you were at the event you would have also seen that ÜberConference was sponsoring the front and back of the badges at the event. For those who weren’t there, here is how it looked:

UberConference is proud to announce our partnership with Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) for #TechPlantsSF. The goal of this effort is to involve members of the Bay Area tech community in improving San Francisco greenery. SF has only 13.7% tree canopy coverage, ranking 17th among the 20 most populous U.S. cities. Trees are a vital part of what makes the urban ecosystem work, and UberConference is committed to improving the community in which we live and work. We carry this passion into our partnership with FUF.

Friends of the Urban Forest has cared for San Francisco’s trees since 1981. Their mission is to promote a larger, healthier urban forest as part of San Francisco’s green infrastructure through community planting, tree care, education, and advocacy. Since 1981, FUF has planted more than 47,000 trees, totaling 43% of San Francisco’s street tree canopy.

The team at UberConference first became involved with FUF this April at a neighborhood tree planting. Joined by partners at Google, Twitter, Dropbox, YouTube, and Yammer, employees from our team are inspired to help the non-profit raise money and awareness for their mission. If you are interested in participating in this great program, visit the official #TechPlantsSF website to donate and learn more about the initiative.

There will be a welcoming reception on September 3rd hosted by our friends at Twitter. (RSVP by August 26th if you are interested in attending.)
