Minttransparentglossy Congratulations to Aaron Patzer and the entire 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 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!
