Expo features Texas Venture Labs | The Daily Texan

René Pinnell, founder of Hurricane Party, presents a social-networking iPhone app during the the Texas Venture Labs Venture Expo at the AT&T Conference Center on Friday afternoon.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs and investors listened intently Friday as Dan Street, founder of a company that attempts to connect people with their neighborhood, showed off his new spin on social connections and technology in the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center’s amphitheater.

Street’s company, Borrowed Sugar, could serve Austin’s 1,200 neighborhoods by posting on a website local events, news articles, restaurant information, deals with area businesses and a forum for communication. Borrowed Sugar can find anything happening online that is relevant to a particular neighborhood, Street said.

“When you move into a new house, you can feel connected to your neighbors and connected to your community,” he said.
