Dudepins Hits Beta List

The Dude —  May 18, 2012

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.

Oooo baby its beta time! Its official Dudepins is now live. To join the party request an invite on our

want awesome dude stuff but we also want to have awesome dude stuff you can look at anywhere. The rule of thumb we are working with is if you wouldn’t be comfortable showing it to your boss, husband or wife don’t put it up because we are just going to take it down and call you lame. If you are found to be lame we will publicly broadcast over twitter, facebook and google+ your crime and make fun of you.

Just as a heads up, we are in beta which means we are still cleaning up the site and figuring things out. You might encounter some minor bugs or experience some site changes as we make Dudepins better. If you come across anything that is broken or have ideas on how to make Dudepins better then help a dude out and let us know.
