We’re off to FOWA thanks to SSE!

Written by admin on Tuesday, September 30th, 2008 at 7:51 am.

Is that too many acronyms for a Tuesday morning? If so, allow me to translate – ‘We’re off to Future of Web Apps thanks to Sun Startup Essentials‘.

We’re part of the excellent Startup Essentials program from Sun designed specifically to help startups get off the ground rapidly and at lower cost. We’ve taken advantage of some of the excellent discounts on hardware, and are going to be looking into to their expertise when it comes to some nifty hardware/software configuration/optimisation too.

We’ve won a stand to exhibit Tactile CRM at FOWA London next week and are now busy planning what to do on the stand. Our neighbouring stand, Fav.or.it have an awesome Lego Death Star to build, and I am hearing rumours of some beach and hawian shirt action from Stewart at Sun. So what do we have?

We’re still planning at the moment, but needless to say Denver the Tactile CRM dragon will be making a reappearance, we’ll have some beer, a demo of Tactile CRM, and more. So watch this space!

    I am still tempted to get some remote control cars, but would this count as a health risk?

    @nick – I think the women will be a given as it’s a ‘tech’ conference, and I may even wear my Star Wars tie too!

    We’re still thinking up ideas but remote controlled cars would be cool, or maybe a scalectrix?

    How about building a Lego dragon? Lego races!!!

  5. James Blizzard says:

    Lego Scalectrix!

  6. Lets build some sand castles as well please, and still awaiting the scantily clad women aspect, could be me in a hawain skirt

  7. [...] of all a big thanks to Stewart at Sun Startup Essentials for our stand at FOWA – it meant we increased our presence from myself, to a total of four of us each day. Not only that [...]
