Top founders, investors and executives in the retail and local space beat the New York Summer heat Monday trading stories and product demos at LAUNCH Beacon with Signpost’s growth metrics really taking center stage.

Organized by serial entrepreneur, and Signpost investor, Jason Calacanis, the one day event spotlighted the 10 most important technologies in retail, e-commerce, payments and location.

When Signpost CEO Stuart Wall took the stage, Jason was eager to hear about growth to date and he sure wasn’t disappointed.

After walking the audience through some of the ways Signpost helps small local businesses get found, then build lasting customer relationships, Stuart wowed Jason with the impressive company expansion.

Jason’s response left the room and Twitter feed of delegates (see tweets below) feeling pretty electric: “You have 160 employees now and are seeing that kind of revenue growth? Wow. I’m impressed.”
