TechCrunch50 winner Redbeacon

September 26, 2009 | Robert Scoble

Redbeacon won the recent TechCrunch50 2009 conference top award — Best in Show and $50,000 — in San Francisco, Calif.

We visited their San Mateo, Calif., offices to find out more about this interesting new startup.

In this video, the three founders, Yaron Binur, Aaron Lee and Ethan Anderson, who are former Google product managers and engineers, talk about their experiences at TC50.

They also describe how Redbeacon, a startup in the San Francisco, Calif., area, helps consumers find local businesses offering a needed service, obtain price quotes and schedule jobs.

sadly this already exists for ages in germany. There are actually several like myhammer.de or blauarbeit.de (with lots of other verticals) and yes they do got local merchants but they have a problem getting enough users in. Let’s see how they fare, but it is so amazingly similar that I have my doubts. Sorry guys. Local is hard.

The chicken and egg problem is enormous and they don’t even know it….  They are going to get crushed!
