WatZatSong wins TechCrunch Pitch! event in London!

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Raphael Arbuz with Mike Butcher from TechCrunch UK

That was a nice surprise. First to be selected to compete at the TechCrunch Pitch! event taking place in London, as a French startup. Second, to win the competition in front of very interesting projects.

9 startups were given 5 minutes each, and 10 others only 30 seconds, to introduce their project over different aspects (business model, competition, distribution…).

We believe that what made WatZatSong win yesterday evening was the simplicity of the concept, as well as the stunning performance of the community what I would like to thank all the members for. WatZatSong, as a community search engine, gives stunning results. And all the testimonials of members having fun helping each other makes us believe that everyone is finding something in WatZatSong!

You can find the video of my presentation thanks to moblog here.

Big thanks definitely go to Mike Butcher from TechCrunch UK for organizing the event, all the people that came yesterday to listen to the pitchs and get in touch with the speakers and the other startups with whom it was very nice to have a chat!
