#VegasTech Recruiting Event Hosted by ecomom.com

Yesterday I got an email from Quinn Goldstein about an event hosted by ecomom.com. Here’s the description from the Meetup page (where you should RSVP if you want to attend):

ecomom is the latest tech start-up to make the move to Las Vegas and we’re throwing a little event to meet everyone.

We have a yoga instructor in the office twice a week so we thought it would be a good way to end the day and start the fun.

Be here at 4pm sharp to join us for an entry-level yoga class (first timers welcome) or just show up at 6pm for free drinks, food, entertainment, and some surprises.

We look forward to hosting all of you.

Sounds like a really fun event!

For those that don’t know about ecomom, check out this Techcrunch article on their $4 million funding from a lot of big name investors.

Since the above is a recruiting event for ecomom, then it’s worth linking to the ecomom jobs page. They have 6 great jobs listed with all of them in Las Vegas. It’s great to have ecomom bringing more jobs to Las Vegas.

Rumgr Raises $500k from Tony Hsieh, Arun Rajan, Fred Mossler and Andrew Donner and Launches Officially

It’s been a big couple days for the team behind Rumgr: Dylan Bathurst, Ray Morgan and Alex Coleman. They officially launched Rumgr and they announced their first round of funding as well. This is the first Startup Weekend Las Vegas company to get funding. I still remember when I heard Dylan first pitch the idea. It’s come a long way since then.

As part of their official launch they’ve added some great new features like splitting comments and offers into two distinct actions. This might seem like a subtle change, but it’s a really smart move for Rumgr since it also sets the stage for them to build in a number of other features around paying for an item based on the offer that’s accepted.

I also love a number of the website features that have been added to Rumgr.com as they seem to have embraced what Mark Suster has recently called a Web Second, Mobile First strategy. As I think back on my chats with Dylan and Ray I think they’ll continue this thoughtful approach on what to add to the app and what to add to the website that will make Rumgr work better on both platforms.

According to Techcrunch, Rumgr raised $500k from Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, Zappos CTO Arun Rajan, Fred Mossler, and Andrew Donner, CEO and owner of Resort Gaming Group.

Congrats to Dylan, Ray and Alex on their official launch and funding. All of Vegas Tech is looking forward to where they take the app from here.

Paul Carr Based Startup Based in Las Vegas

The exciting news coming out today is about Paul Carr’s new startup company being based in Las Vegas. If you don’t know Paul Carr, then you must not follow tech and should go follow him on Twitter. Paul Carr is probably most famous for being a boisterous columnist for TechCrunch and if you don’t believe me, check out Paul Carr’s TechCrunch resignation letter. Here’s a short section from Paul’s blog post announcing his move to Las Vegas:

I’m starting a new company, with financial backing from Tony Hsieh (Zappos, Delivering Happiness) and Michael Arrington’s CrunchFund. We’re not ready to say too much about the specifics right now but — spoiler alert! — it will directly address an issue I’ve written passionately about for both TechCrunch and the Guardian.

There’s little doubt that Paul Carr will be an interesting addition to Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project. Paul Carr is quite familiar with Las Vegas after he did a month long Las Vegas diary where he visited a new Vegas hotel almost every night.

As a blogger myself, I’m interested to see what type of company Paul plans to start. Welcome to Las Vegas Paul! I look forward to meeting you at a future Las Vegas tech event.
