    Ingram’s VitalSource wants to acquire Verba to give students affordable access to textbooks

    The college textbook industry has no shortage of startups, from ebook company RedShelf to big players like rental service Chegg all the way to Amazon itself.

VitalSource, the ed-tech arm of book distribution company Ingram is today announcing their… Read More

    Radar launches out of Expa Labs to power location services for app developers

    Developers have Stripe for payments, Mixpanel for analytics, and Twilio for communications, but what about location. That’s where Radar comes in. Radar was founded by Nick Patrick, former Foursquare and Handy employee, along with his fellow Foursquarer Coby Berman, after realizing that lots of apps need location services, but it’s tedious and difficult to build out on the back… Read More

    Apple’s next iPhone might cost more than $1000 thanks to OLED displays

    iPhone rumor season is upon us — as if it ever ends — and the latest claims that the next iPhone will cost upwards of $1000 (at least, for the most expensive model). To be clear, that isn’t a huge deal considering that the top-of-the-line iPhone currently costs more than $900. Still, Fast Company reports that Apple may be switching from LCD displays to an OLED display… Read More

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren gets 6M+ Facebook Live views after being silenced by Republicans

    Facebook gave Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren a voice late last night when her Senate colleagues attempted to silence her on the floor.

    These are the companies fighting for Best Startup at the 10th Annual Crunchies

    The 10th Annual Crunchies Awards show is less than a week away, and it’s finally time to formally introduce you to the companies vying for Best Startup in 2016. Obviously, with these companies attacking a variety of verticals and sectors, it’s quite difficult to determine which one of them is “best.” But that’s why we have our lovely Crunchies Board, comprised of… Read More

  • Applications to the D.C. and Miami Pitch-offs close in less than a week!

    Applications to the D.C. and Miami Pitch-offs close in less than a week!

    You have approximately four days to apply to the pitch-offs in D.C. and Miami. I tell you this because inevitably, at every single meetup, some founder walks up and asks if they can pitch because they missed the application window. Please don’t be that person. Be the one that gets up on that stage and turns skeptics into customers in a matter of 60 seconds. The pitch-off will showcase… Read More

Here are the… Read More

    You could be the WILDCARD at the D.C. and Miami Pitch-offs!

    We’re headed to D.C. and Miami for the TC Meetup + Pitch-off, and this time we’re doing things a bit differently. As part of the rapid-fire pitch-off, we’re choosing a WILDCARD startup from our audience of attendees. That means that entrepreneurs attending the event can still wind up pitching their product on stage, even if they aren’t selected (or never applied) for… Read More

  • Postmates takes on Drizly with alcohol delivery in 25 minutes or less

    Postmates takes on Drizly with alcohol delivery in 25 minutes or less

    Alcohol is one of the more perfect on-demand delivery items. However, the industry has been so fragmented for so long that it’s nearly impossible for each local liquor store to operate an efficient online purchasing program (plus delivery). Startups like Drizly and Minibar have gotten in on the game, but now Postmates is throwing its hat into the ring officially. Postmates is now… Read More

  • Vertigo lets friends listen to the same music in real time

    Vertigo lets friends listen to the same music in real time

    Developers have long tried (and mostly failed) to give users a social media platform that centers around music. Apps like DubSmash and Musical.ly have risen above the rest, but a brand new app called Vertigo is looking to mix it up. What’s interesting about Vertigo is that the app lets you share music with a plus one, your core group of friends, or to the public on a beat-for-beat level. Read More
