“It would be hard to overstate the value hookflash received as a result of being selected, and presenting at StartupCamp3 at ITEXPO Miami, this past February. The hookflash pitch, to an audience of over 500, created tremendous industry exposure and awareness, accelerated the close of our oversubscribed seed round financing and resulted in the addition of a senior Google executive to the hookflash Advisory Board. To top it all off; it was in incredibly fun event to be a part of.Trent Johnsen, co-founder of hookflash
