Although its closed to the public, we’d be remiss not to mention that tomorrow is DreamIt Ventures’ Demo Day, when all of the incubated companies present what they’ve been working on. Typically Demo Day is used by the companies to launch products or solicit funding, but some members of this current batch of companies are already well past that. Spling, which was covered (less than favorably) on TechCrunch yesterday, has already announced VC funding. ElectNext launched its first iteration for the elections this year and Cloudmine has been powering hackathons, Startup Weekends and mobile apps for months.

At IMPACT last week, KPMG announced the results of its survey of tech companies and investors. In short, tech companies are growing, hiring and focusing on mobile. Mike Armstrong has the details.

As we reported last week, AboutOne the “Basecamp for families” has raised $1.6 million from Golden Seeds.

Quaker BioVentures has changed its name to Quaker Partners reports the Philadelphia Business Journal. According to the firm’s site, it will still focus on healthcare investments.

Newton Square-based DocVue has raised $890,000. We couldn’t find a web page for the site, but the LinkedIn page of CEO and Founder Vijay Khanna says the company is an “innovative solution that harnesses the power of the provider-patient relationship.” Khanna is also a partner at Radnor-based GIV Venture Partners.
