Rock Health is the first tech accelerator for health apps — Skimble is grateful and excited to be a part of it! Last night was the program’s kick-off event and after party! Here are photos of the program founders, sponsors, advisors, mentors & startups:

It’s been about a week since Skimble (literally) rocked SXSW 2010.?? We made the most out of the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator startup pitch competition by promoting healthy lifestyles at a conference that may, at first glance, seem far from.??
Skimble placed Top 3 in the Innovative Web Technology category at SXSW Accelerator 2010 and received valuable feedback from expert judges including Guy Kawasaki, Paul Graham of Y Combinator, Marshall Kirkpatrick of ReadWriteWeb, and Chris Sacca of lowercase capital (stunned!).
Here’s a recap of our SXSW adventure and what people we’re saying about Skimble:
“the most memorable moment of the day goes to Maria Ly, founder of Skimble, who performed a 30-second exercise jam which included backflips, and legs pulled behind her head – while flipping open a phone. Though, we’re sure that’s not the only reason Skimble – a platform to track, plan and share sports and recreation activities with friends – made the cut!”

“The final contestant to take the stage was Skimble and if there’s one thing we can say, it’s that co-founder Maria Ly did it with style…This woman is living what she’s preaching.”
– ReadWriteWeb’s Mike Melanson
Out ‘n about at SXSW, Team Skimble looked their ‘active’ best:
We also made sure to say hi to the nice folks at PayPal’s SXSW booth and demo the Skimble application:
Before SXSW Interactive ended, Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Workweek ‘muscled up’ some Skimble love:
‘S’ is for Skimble:
Here are some of our friends enjoying the Austin sun:
Nothing stopped us from doing some yoga at Lululemon Athletica, urban run/walking downtown and bouldering at Austin Rock Gym South in between SXSW events.
We’re back from SXSW 2010 and have all fortunately survived.?? For all the photos we took at SXSW, check out our Skimble @ SXSW 2010 collection on flickr.
