After three days of startup demos at TechCrunch Disrupt NY, Vurb walked away with the Disrupt cup.
Vurb’s mission is to make mobile web browsing a whole lot easier by connecting and compiling relevant information for you.
The runner-up was IMI Technologies.
Past TechCrunch Disrupt NY winners include Soluto, Getaround, UberConference, and Enigma. All four of those startups have fared pretty well, but none is a runaway success, at least not yet.
Soluto, the winner of Disrupt’s inaugural event in New York in 2010, has raised $US18 million in funding to continue offering support tools to small businesses for managing and fixing their PCs. Just last month, it introduced a new service to support small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
Getaround, a peer-to-peer car rental startup, has raised $US19 million to date from investors including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Collaborative Fund, Menlo Ventures, and CrunchFund. It’s still a relatively young company but is definitely a rising star in the “sharing economy.” Just last month, Getaround partnered with the city of San Francisco to get access to 450 on-street parking spots.
UberConference, the winner of TechCrunch Disrupt 2012, has done pretty well. Earlier this year, it partnered with billion-dollar startup Evernote to share notes in conference calls.
Enigma, the winner of TechCrunch Disrupt 2013, aims to make sorting through public data a breeze. Earlier this year, Enigma raised a $US4.5 million Series A round.
