Judging the G-Startup Competition at the Global Mobile Internet Conference

I was honored to be a lead judge at the G-Startup competition of the Silicon Valley Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) held at the San Jose Convention Center. Other speakers and judges included Yuri Milner, Tim Draper, Vaughan Smith (VP, Facebook), Phil Libin (CEO, Evernote) and Chinese billionaire Lei Jun. GMIC is the largest mobile Internet conference in Silicon Valley drawing 5,200+ mobile leaders from 45 countries.  My top pick from the slate of companies I evaluated, Disherence, also happened to win the overall G-Startup award. Congratulations to the Disherance team who came to Silicon Valley all the way from Moscow and did a great job presenting their solution.  I look forward to using your product. Watch out, Yelp and Urban Spoon!
