Startups on .NET

I’m not alone is wondering about where are all the .NET startups, Sasha Sydoruk wrote ASP.NET startups. I asked about startups building on .NET (though, from a survey design perspective the link was lost in a long, deep post). My friend Aaron is building on .NET and Mono, check out Mindtouch‘s DekiWiki. Geoff is building Moonlight with Miquel and the team at Novell. Don Dodge, Lynda Ting, Dan’l Lewin and the Emerging Business Team write an excellent blog for early-stage companies in the Microsoft technology sphere at Microsoft Startup Zone. There is a growing list of Canadian companies, now that former Toronto VC Lynda Ting has joined the EBT in Silicon Valley.

Lots of these companies aren’t sexy but they solve real problems for real customers and generate real revenue. And that is sometimes a much harder problem.

Are you building something on .NET? Drop me a note.
