The TechCrunch50 has concluded and the winners announced. Best in show went to local search startup RedBeacon. The site has elements of ServiceMagic and OpenTable and more can be found in the TechCrunch writeup and video of the company's demo on Monday.
The startup competition has only been around for a few years, but this is the first time local search companies got so much play. They had their own category during Monday's demo sessions and there were decidedly more of them present than last year.
RedBeacon not only took top prize but CitySourced, profiled here earlier, took third place and local search engine Yext got an audience favorite award. Congrats to RedBeacon, which gets $50K in seed money and a whole lot of recognition. Now the hard part begins.
