studiVZ CEO departs "with immediate effect"

I ran an informal “TechCrunch Pitch!” event at Web 2.0 Expo Europe, Berlin 2008 this week. Each startup gets a minute to pitch their idea and then the crowd decides who won. I recorded it as a 25 minute podcast, below. My apologies for the sound quality. I will get this right one day… The winner of the pitch was… You’ll have to listen to find out. Ah, ok, it was Babbel and Cellity came second (as voted by the assembled crowd).

Featuring pitches from:

And now here’s the video from Christian Payne (aka @Documentally):

  • Phil v. Sassen

    Mike, thanks once again for the opportunity to pitch!

  • lukas

    I think that “PassPack” should be “Passpack”

  • Giorgio Montersino

    It really was lots of fun :D

  • Donato

    Mike, I have been rehearsing my 1 minute pitch in the mirror since we last met. I think I have now mastered how to sum up Passpack in just 60 sweaty seconds! Looking forward to giving it another go. :)
    Thanks again!

    Yes, it’s Passpack with a little p. Thnx for noticing lukas.
