By covering these topics, our goal is to encourage a discussion that connects students across campuses.

Capital Entrepreneurs Welcomes New Member Brazen Careerist

Capital Entrepreneurs welcomes it’s newest member Brazen Careerist.  Brazen Careerist becomes the 42nd Capital Entrepreneurs member company!

Brazen Careerist exists to give everyone an opportunity to build and nurture a network of trusted peers. Other professional sites allow you to display a network, but not necessarily build one. Microblogging resources like Twitter can tell you who you should network with, but it’s tough to build a real relationship on 140 character missives. And social networks like Facebook are great for having a conversation, but it’s a conversation that employers don’t want to hear.

Brazen Careerist brings the best of all these worlds into one, cohesive, social media based career management tool. Think of it as a 24-7 virtual networking event, filled with people who can help you get ahead in your career.

Proactive Sleep Featured On Gizmodo’s Top 10 Apps of the Week

Capital Entrepreneur member Proactive Sleep was featured as #3 on Gizmodo’s list of top 10 apps of the week.  Here’s what they said:

Proactive Sleep: Is there a such thing as a sleep coach? Let’s assume there is! In a nutshell, that’s what this app, designed with SCIENCE, aims to be. It’s an alarm clock at its core, which wakes you up with music of your choice then challenges you to a game, or offers you a dream diary. It’ll also track your sleep patterns and warn you when you’ve dipped below average. A little steep at five dollars, but it’s fairly polished and written by a bon-a-fide sleep researcher.

Parallel Kingdom Launches Using Innovative Strategy

Capital Entrepreneur member Per Blue is about to launch its new Age of Emergence version of Parallel Kingdom.  Below is info from their press release regarding the launch:

Beginning Halloween, October 31st, Parallel Kingdom will be having an in-game event called the Scroll Hunt that will involve players gathering randomly placed scrolls and then uniting within the game. When four players that have each found a scroll all meet at one location, they will be able to combine their individual scrolls, creating a blueprint for a one-of-a-kind building called the Great Library.

The first four players that unite and successfully build the Great Library will be documented as the founders of the new version of the game, titled “Parallel Kingdom – The Age of Emergence.” The entire scroll hunt is expected to take about two weeks, but it has the possibility to last indefinitely. The new version of Parallel Kingdom will not become available until four players get together and build the Great Library. After the Great Library begins construction, the game servers will go down to update the game. When they come back up, the new version of the game will be available in Google Market and the iTunes App Store. In the new version, the construction of the Great Library will be complete and it will exist forever in the same location where the four players decided to build it.

Justin Beck of PerBlue, Inc., the company that developed Parallel Kingdom, says “We’re really excited about the Scroll Hunt because to the best of our knowledge, no other video game has ever done anything like this.” This contest will let the players compete with each other to find the scrolls first, and then they will have to cooperate to get four people with scrolls together in the game to build the Great Library. Beck says, “Its like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with 4 golden tickets except instead of a tour, you get to usher in a whole new game title”. The four winners’ names will be permanently inscribed on the Great Library. “For the developers and players the whole event should be tons of fun.”
