TechCrunch 50

If you were following techcrunch 50 you already know that redbeacon won the grand prize of $50,000. But what they took home is much more than the money. They got the kind of exposure that will catapult their startup to the next level. Not to mention the opportunity to get funded that will follow.

If you watch the presentations at the conference you will realize that none of the ideas are what you would call “world changing”. Almost of all of them are simple ideas with great execution. And these are the top 50 of the many ideas submitted. The point I’m getting at is, don’t wait for that world changing idea to start on your project. Pick a problem to solve and go after it with all you got.

Update: Here is a post by Sarah Lacy where she says that we didn't see any world changing idea at TC50.
