The word is spreading! Recently, Beta List featured Dudepins on their homepage. Beta List is a curated and up-to-date listing of internet startups that are currently in private beta or will be in beta soon. In case you didn’t know, Dudepins falls into this category. Dudepins hails from Vancouver British Columbia Canada which is also the birthplace of other notable tech companies such as Hootsuite, Mobify and Plenty of Fish.
The startup ecosystem is an interesting one right now. There are major acquisitions like Facebook’s billion+ dollar acquisition of Instagram even though Instagram had no consistent revenue. The number of venture capital firms has been declining since the Dot-com bubble. It seems like we are entering an entrepreneurial age. The USA recognized this and amended the JOBS act to include the CROWFUND act which allows entrepreneurs to take on hundreds of shareholders with micro-investments. This act basically copies crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Crowdtilt.
