NYU Stern School of Business concluded Startup 2010 Silicon Alley Insider, with an auspicious welcome from Professor Jeffrey Carr, Director of Stern’s Berkley Center for Entrepreneurship, energized moderating from the ebullient  Henry Blodget , and passionate investment pitches from the top ten finalists. None of the expected flair epitomized by the mobile revolution was missing at this forum except, of course, the “red carpet”. But Stern’s violet stage paraded the ten finalists as good as any silicon alley could. While the global economy stuttered and Wall Street licked its wounds, some of the world’s brightest minds engaged in combative investment deliberations.
The game was in play….Startup 2010. There were no second chances. Competitive juices flowed, feelings were hurt, egos were diminished and surprises emerged. Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?
But even combatants must yield to a much deserved lunch break, and that’s where the chatter starts, then the Twitter, “Biz cards” and all else……social networking. Facial expressions betrayed true feelings. Is this the time to flaunt an MBA? Why not?
Then the verdict!  Voting! No, not show-of-hands voting! The year is 2010.  Electronic devices buzzed as the bar chart flashed and seemed to come alive. Will it be Red Beacon, Udemy, Profitably, Secure IQ, Go Try It On, SalesCrunch, TuitionCast, Mobility Apps, eVOTZ or hypios?
And the winner of Startup 2010 is……Red Beacon.
Thanks for the enthusiastic effort of each and every participant involved. Remember, you are all winners in this renaissance. Continue to pursue your concept and ideals with vigor and persistence. We are still awaiting your success story.
