Last night’s “GROW 2012 Startup Smackdown” party was a fun, rowdy, and interesting night.  RocketSpace was packed and the spread put out by Bloomberg was great.

Eight startups pitched in front of six high profile judges and the banter back and forth was pretty hilarious.  We’re looking forward to the next Smackdown’s happening at this year’s GROW Conference on August 23rd, 2012.
