Columbia Business School hosts us tonight as three of NY’s top Israeli web companies take the stage in front of a standing-room only crowd of TechAviv NY members. Here’s a short blurb about each company:
Eyeblaster has been around the rich media advertising block for more than a decade and despite its multiple rounds of financing and 29 offices around the word, is still innovating like a startup. The company creates tools for online ad campaign deployment and management and provides professional services to ensure you get the job done right. VP Products Ran Cohen will demo their latest toys and discuss the current state of online advertising.
Ronen Mizrachi‘s TVersity is a media server that runs on your PC and lets you stream content to your devices including TV-connected game consoles or set-top boxs, Sony PSP, even to your iPhone, regardless of the codec limitations of the device. The software pulls it off by transcoding the media on your PC first. 4 million users are digging it. The company has recently launched their Pro version with marguee content from Hulu, CBS, Comedy Central, Amazon VOD, etc. How does it stack up to the likes of Boxee for web-to-TV viewing? We’ll see tonight.
10bis has been feeding tens of thousands of card-carrying Israeli hi-tech’ers, and normal people too, via their best-of-breed online food ordering and delivery service in Israel. Many hi-tech companies (mine included) use their cards to enable employees to eat out at participating restaurants on the company’s dime. Very convenient service and well oiled site. The service however is Israel-based so what is founder and CEO Tamir Carmel doing in NYC? We’ll find out.
