Techcrunch Disrupt NYC - 2011

I ended up watching quite a few of these this year; there were some truly inspiring entrants into the main event with the eventual winner being: Get Around

Getaround is a car rental market place where you can rent a car by the day, hour or week through a smartphone app. Getaround’s all inclusive package, which includes insurance, 24 hour roadside assistance, a Getaround car-kit, iPhone app and a web app makes it easy for people to conveniently car share anywhere.

I must say, for me (and the audience as well!) the choice winner was CodeGuard, a protect and monitoring system against attacks and theft for websites. They have just been offered $500,000 funding in a first round investment bid. So, it looks like this company will at least get rolling!

Here's their pitch:

I also liked DO@
