SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/02/12 -- Eight Startup America Partnership member companies, each from a different Startup Region across the U.S., will unveil their new services at DEMO Fall 2012, the premier launch conference in the country. Four of the companies will launch on DEMO's main stage, while four others will showcase their startups in the DEMO Pavilion. After winning regional competitions, each startup was hand-selected by DEMO to participate in this prominent event.

"This group of diverse startups heading to DEMO represents what Startup America is all about: supporting and highlighting the amazing young, growing companies located all across the United States," said Scott Case, CEO of the Startup America Partnership. "DEMO is a fantastic place for these companies to launch and demonstrate the power of startup ecosystems -- from Connecticut to Oregon -- that are not typically on the national radar."

DEMO is a potentially game-changing event for these Startup America members, who will have the chance to interact with hundreds of investors and members of the media over the course of the three-day conference. Past DEMO participants include companies like Salesforce, WebEx and TiVo. Participants include:

Showcasing Startup America Members:

Jamplifiy, Startup Tennessee: a promotional platform allowing anyone who has content to leverage their current fan base to get the word out.

CoPatient, Startup Oregon: created to give patients the knowledge and insight desperately needed to understand medical bills.

Charlie Contacts, Startup Illinois: lets you "have them at hello" by arming you with all the need-to-know information about your contacts before any meeting, conference or phone call.

Hallway, Startup DC: makes learning and connecting with friends, classmates, and the world easier than ever. On Hallway, students can ask questions, share notes, collaborate on assignments, and stay organized.

Launching Startup America Members:

EcoLek, LLC, Startup California: aims to reconnect people with nature by helping them identify the birds around them.

RecBob, Startup Iowa: a Facebook app that manages adult sports teams, making them easy and fun.

eBrevia, Startup Connecticut: commercializing natural language processing technology developed at a major research university to assist corporate attorneys, in-house counsel, and business executives in performing a variety of tasks more efficiently, accurately, and cost effectively.
