What’s most amazing about TechCrunch Disrupt Beijing is that our Startup Battlefield format has proved applicable internationally; There’s something universal about giving your all in a pitch to people with money I guess. After watching the seventeen companies take the stage yesterday (and blogging all day), TechCrunch’s John Biggs, Greg Kumparak and I went backstage, exhausted and inspired, to discuss our favorites and who we thought had the best chance of winning.
Because startups are serious business, the three of us tried our best to be professional. Unfortunately (or fortunately) a maintenance woman accidentally walking through our set about one minute in put the kibosh on that plan. The resulting hilarity was so good we couldn’t help but post it exactly how it happened.
This is how the sausage is made folks.
