I hope I am one of the first to blog about Tech Crunch’s Boston party at the Estate off of Boylston. At the party there were a number of companies demoing their products and giving their elevator pitches (video coming soon) while socializing and networking. Mike Arrington went on stage when saying his thanks for the night and asked everyone in the audience to raise their hands if they are an entrepreneur. Every other person in the crowd raised their hand. Then he asked all the investors to raise their hands. Three hands went up. I feel sorry for the suckers who raised their hands as VC’s because they were flooded after that with elevator pitches and more. Wow. Is is just me or are the number of investors interested in web 2.0 fading?
Of the companies there I enjoyed talking to:
Jeremy Allaire of Bright Cove
Gary Vaynerchuk Wine Library TV
