Redlands, California —June 2, 2014—Start-ups will talk about all things hyperlocal at Street Fight Summit West on June 3, and Esri will be there to showcase some of the people using Esri's ArcGIS platform.
"The next chapter in local marketing is all about contextual awareness. Location and maps have a huge role to play here," said Jim Young, Esri business development lead. "We will be at Street Fight Summit West to promote three start-ups that have partnered with Esri, before they become household names. We also want to show how easy it is to add location and geofencing to apps using Esri Geotrigger Service, and our other developer tools."
The following companies will be included in the Esri Start-up Showcase at Street Fight Summit West:
