Mint Wins TechCrunch $50K Grand Prize
After the grande finale cocktail reception at TechCrunch40, a big chunk of the 1,000 attendees filed back into the Palace Hotel ballroom in San Francisco in anticipation of the TC40 prize winners (the name in a hat thing) and the Best of Show (so to speak) for the conference.
A favorite among many I talked to (although there were some ties for favorites across a variety of categories), was Mint, who ended up winning the $50,000 check. Below, Jason Calacanis and Michael Arrington hand off this handsome check to Mint CEO and founder Aaron Patzer on-stage.
TechCrunch covered the award ceremony and I wrote about Mint earlier after they presented on stage this morning. A summary from the TC blog: “Mint is a personal finance application that lets users track and monitor their financials in one place without the need of routine maintenance or accounting knowledge. Their application tracks bank, credit union and credit card transactions and alerts users to upcoming bills, low balances or unusual spending."
