WHAT IS DEMOCAMP HALIFAX?
Where the Startup Community Comes Together.
DemoCamp Halifax, presented by BUILD Ventures, is an event for the regional technology and startup community to come together and share what they’ve built as a live demo (no power point allowed), give each other feedback, learn from speakers and connect with one another.
Everyone interested in locally built technology is welcome to attend. Entrepreneurs, makers, developer, students, non-technical and technical, funders, marketers, salespeople, lawyers, accountants – anyone who is interested in regionally built tech and startups!
Who is Demoing?

Cribcut is a marketplace startup that connects barbers and consumers for in-home or in-office haircuts. Over 2 million men get their haircut in North American barbershops everyday – Cribcut’s mission is to remove the hassle from this monthly grooming ritual. Say goodbye to barbershop cold calls, lengthy wait times, and travel to and from appointments and have a Cribcut barber visit you today.
While $23 Billion worth of Timber is bought and sold every year from small mom and pop woodlots in North America and Europe alone, the network of offline relationships that once made this market work is in the process of disintegrating as land passes down to a new generation of landowners. WoodsCamp.com more than triples the efficiency of wood procurement – moving the process from door knocking and kitchen table conversations to social networks and the web. The unprecedented transparency and efficiency of WoodsCamp’s technology enabled timber brokerage is unlocking trapped value for landowners while delivering the hardest and most complex part of the forest industry’s supply chain at a lower marginal cost.
Currently almost all video is presented using a standard layout – containing a thumbnail image, title and short description. But there’s no previewing capability, so viewers have no idea what they’ll see in the video. The result is lower click-throughs, shorter attention spans and higher abandonment rates.
VidSnippets’ web-based product solves this by enabling easy creation of custom summary clips that link to the source video. These clips can be embedded on websites or shared over social media. We save people time, effort and frustration, while giving content providers a great way to stand out, capture viewer attention and increase engagement.
A games and creative studio focused on creating works that inspire and engage. A unique business model sets us apart from the constraints of typical development. We will be demoing our first and upcoming game that will implement this model.
