Vancouver’s DimeRocker is down in Sunnyvale, California this week for part two of Bootup Demo Days and ReadWriteWeb’s Dana Oshiro singled them out from the lineup of eight startups from Vancity.

This morning Canadian startup accelerator Bootup Labs showcased some of its program graduates at Plug and Play Center’s Sunnyvale location. While a number of the companies show promise, it was a gaming product that caught our attention. DimeRocker is offering developers a chance to elevate the level of gaming experiences and monetization on sites like Facebook, Myspace and Bebo.

Oshiro realizes that Vancouver is an anchor city in the gaming industry and believes that DimeRocker CEO J. Joly is set to bridge the gap between traditional games and the social space – “Joly explains that while game developers know how to build fantastic gaming experiences, it’s rare that they understand how to market and deploy their games across more casual high-traffic sites”.

dimeRocker is a product of Bootup Labs portfolio company OverInteractive Media Inc.
