Best Tech Startup

Rolltech Bowling



It’s a little known and probably untrue fact that bowling accounts for 97 percent of our local economy. When the wheels of Las Vegas get to turning, they do so to return your ball so you can get the spare. Perhaps that’s why VegasTech member Rich Belsky created Rolltech Bowling, a cool iPhone/iPad app that tracks and shares your bowling scores and stats in real time. Just go to a Rolltech-equipped alley (there’s one at the Red Rock Resort) and you can compete with friends in other cities, even other countries—basically exporting Las Vegas’ natural bowling mojo to the rest of the world. More so than any other local tech startup, Rolltech builds on old-school Vegas to deliver something different and new.
