After highlighting startups I liked from the first two days of TechCrunch50 conference I wanted to follow-up with the startups that I liked on the final day of the event. The following startups are companies I was impressed by and would like to give a try:
fotonauts - images for humanity
videosurf - innovate video search product that can "see" inside videos and index them
bojam - unites musicians across the globe to make music.
atmosphir - free gaming platform which is like legos for game creation
playce - amazing looking 3D Web games
birdpost - very niche social network for bird watchers
closet couture - solid fashion social network - looks like a lot of work though which could be an issue with adoption
footnote - though a little gloomy this is a bit of a social network for the deceased - it will be interesting to see how social the dead really are
causecast - create a set of tools for raising money for non-profit causes
goplanit - auto suggesting travel planner online toolset
goodguide - an impressive presentation of the world's largest and reliable source of information for products you found in your home
iamnews.com - creates collaboration newsroom which open sources or crowdsourcing news reporting through syndication (won the demo pit opportunity to present)
TechCrunch50 was an exhausting three days. We saw a lot of new startups and saw some bad ones too. I got a chance to meet some great people and learned a few things along the way from the various panels at the event. Congrats to every company that particapted in TechCrunch50 from the main stage to the demo pit.
