The Local Lowdown on Skipping Video Ads
Last week our team had the pleasure of presenting at the New Tech Denver Meetup alongside several other local startup tech companies. The New Tech Denver and Boulder meetups always draw a crowd, and this one had more than 100 techies in attendance to hear the “what’s what” from emerging technologies along the Front Range.
The SkipIt team donned our comfy SkipIt t-shirts and mingled, sipped our share of beer and then settled in to listen and learn. When it was our turn, the talented Mr. Kevin Hunt (@showtunes), joined by one of our lead engineers, Andrew Kuttig, had 5 minutes to tell the crowd all about the benefits of skipping video ads to get to their online content, how users can pay to skip or earn lots of free skips, about all the main technologies behind running SkipIt and how we’ve signed up tens of thousands of users since we launched in April 2012.
Couldn’t make it that night? If not, check out the video:
Thanks very much to our MapQuest hosts for the use of their cool office space, and to New Tech for allowing us to present with fellow startups like Flowth, Reflections, and Ibotta and listen to an informative Q&A session with Peter Adams from Rockies Venture Club.
We might love to skip video ads, but we won’t skip New Tech meet ups – see you all there.
