TC Disrupt San Francisco 2011 Competing Companies

The 2011 TechCrunch Disrupt conference was held in San Francisco, California, from September 12th through the 14th. The conference, presented by the technology and startup-focused blog TechCrunch, featured pitches from 31 promising recent startups live on stage, along with panel discussions and guest speakers. (29 startups were admitted in advance, 2 were chosen from the demo pit by the audience.) From these selections, a variety of awards were presented, including a grand prize winner, the Israeli startup Shaker. (Shaker is a Facebook app that functions as a virtual bar, allowing users to meet new people online while chatting, sharing photos and tweets and listening to music.) The runner-up company was Prism Skylabs, with Bitcasa, Cake Health, Farmigo, TalkTo, and Trello rounding out the finalists.

Below is a list of all 29 competing TC Disrupt 2011 companies. Vote for your favorites and let's see if the Ranker community disagrees with the TechCrunch judges. [DISCLOSURE: None of us have invested anything in any of these companies. This is just for fun.]
