bend venture conference:
electronic voting for conference attendees
Audience voting is part of the Bend Venture Conference experience. Before the conference 10 early stage companies pitch at a PubTalk and the audience votes to select the five that compete for a cash prize. At the conference the audience votes for the winner. Prior to the voting app the audience voted on paper. Now the audience scanned a unique QR code that took them to a website so they could vote using their mobile device. Determining the winner was done in seconds instead of the time consuming error-prone hand counting.
