Look At All These Startup Founders Acting Like ZOMBIES

The 500 Startups accelerator run by Dave McClure and Christine Tsai just announced its third round of startups.

This time, 34 companies are taking part. Some of the most interesting sounding include:

  • eSpark Learning, a “Pandora for elementary school students” that creates custom play lists of educational apps on elementary school students’ iPads.
  • LoveWithFood, which aims to make it easier to find culinary deals and free samples.
  • MelonCard, which promises to remove your personal information from companies selling it ove the web.
  • SwitchCam, which aggregates fan-recorded concert videos.

The full list is here.

Eight of the companies feature female founders, and 15 of them have international founders.

But all of them pretended to be zombies for this recreation of Michael Jackson’s Thriller video for Halloween. Jacko is played by Tim Chae of Redeemr.
