Food.ee is one step closer to world domination. First, we broke the news that we made the top 25 finalists for the Launch @ GROW (#LPGROW) contest with the help of all our amazing friends, fans, and followers. Then, we found out that the judges had selected Food.ee to be one of the 15 semi-finalists to attend and demo at the GROW conference in Vancouver at the opening night party. Check out the announcement on techvibes here.
What does this mean? Out of nearly 60 entries, Food.ee was chosen by the fans, and by the judges to demo and pitch our product to likeminded professionals, investors, entrepreneurs, and influencers at the Launch @ GROW opening night party on Aug. 17. The invite-only program brings together promising entrepreneurs with leading Silicon Valley and Canadian founders, connectors and investors to meet, discuss, debate, and glean information to understand how to innovate in a web-fuelled world. The day will consist of a variety of small (10 person), 30 minute, interactive group conversations. These are off the record, round-table discussions. There will be no panels, no press, no tweeting.
The GROW 2011 Conference takes place Aug. 17-19 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, BC. It is a technology conference that brings together leading entrepreneurs, thinkers, learners, and investors from Silicon Valley and Canada to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship.
Food.ee is a new web application from Invoke that allows you to order takeout or delivery food from the comfort of your couch. We’re launching soon and have begun to roll out beta-tester invites to our early-adopters. Food.ee is designed to make ordering food online easy, intuitive and social. The website gets to know you and helps you decide what to eat by offering up recommendations based on a personal profile of tastes and preferences.
