Israeli Start-Ups ROCK @ TC50

The TechCrunch50 Conference just wrapped up in SF and 3 Israeli (ok, not full Israeli: 1 is semi-Israeli and 1 is third-Israeli) Start-Ups took center stage! I tried following the action as it unfolded, paying special attention to the updates of tweeple friends at SF: Yael Beeri, Yaron Orenstein, Orli Yakuel, Ayelet Noff and Sharel Omer. Also created a ‘TC50 Israel‘ search in my tweetdeck, but there was just too much content to follow…

RedBeacon won Best SU at TC50, receiving 50,000 US$ and most important world recognition. Trollim won Best International SU and AnyClip won Audience Favorite. About the winners (from TC50 site):

RedBeacon is a new service making its public debut today at TechCrunch50 that further streamlines this process by bringing the OpenTable model of online transactions to much broader spectrum of services. During their presentation on stage yesterday at TC50, RedBeacon showed an end-to-end demo, from deciding what you want (cakes) to delivering them, in person, to the audience at TC50 – very cool!!

Trollim lets coders battle for programming superiority, by createing a competition platform and social network for programmers that assesses their coding skills through coding battles. Users are identified as “trolls” on the platform and once a user signs up, he or she fills out a profile that includes their age, location and coding language skills (C++, Ruby, PHP etc.). Trollim then gives the user 3 to 6 pieces of code, or a “test,” to fix to asses their baseline level of skill and based on the results of this test, the user is given a skill level of 1 though 5.

AnyClip is a Search Engine for Movie Clips. People reference scenes all the time in their daily lives, and on the web it’s not uncommon for a blogger to accentuate their post with a particularly relevant clip. But for their popularity, there still isn’t an established site that’s known as the place to find a movie clip. AnyClip wants to be that place.
