Mint.com wins Techcrunch40 Conference!

Minttransparentglossy Congratulations to Aaron Patzer and the entire Mint.com team for their selection as the "best presenting company" at the Techcrunch40 conference.  Given the 40 amazing companies that presented there, this honor is quite an endorsement.  It's been just about one year since we made our initial investment in Mint, and this is quite a way to launch a product!  (If you're interested in a free web-based tool that helps you manage and make money, check out mint.com today)...

I'm also excited that two additional First Round Capital portfolio companies launched at Techcrunch40 to great reviews -- Xobni and Powerset.  Xobni is well on their way towards making Outlook suck less -- check it out here.  And Powerset is working hard towards improving your ability to search the web intelligently.

I can't tell you how bummed I was that I was unable to make the conference due to a prior commitment - but First Round Capital was well represented by Chris and Rob.  I continue to be amazed at the power and scale of the Techcrunch platform that Michael Arrington is building.  Congratulations to Michael, Jason and Heather as well on what sounds like an amazing maiden conference!

Mint.com and Covestor.com are startup companies providing two very unique online personal finance and investment tracking services but they do have one thing in common… and that’s spectacular customer service for all us beta testers.

Really nice and informative post.It helps users like us to choose our money management tool since the essence of money management has really increased.

I don’t know much about mint as I use manageME7 for managing my finances. It helps:

-to manage my day-to-day finances more conveniently
-my husband can use this web based application anywhere, anytime while traveling.
-I also get a chance to earn through its affiliate program

May be you too found it interesting and end up writing a review so that others can also use it.
