CEO Chris Buttenham and CTO Alex Sopinka will be heading back to San Francisco for the event, which takes place on October 9th-11th. Chris will be pitching to a judging panel to be considered as an award winner. There will also be an exhibition where investors and other startups will be in attendance, and a rooftop party to cap it all off, where Obie will be busting out his dancing shoes.
