YourVersion Wins TechCrunch50's Coveted People's Choice Award!

Posted by YourVersion on September 14th, 2009.

We’re excited to announce that YourVersion won the TechCrunch50 People’s Choice Award. YourVersion was selected by conference attendees from the 50 start-ups exhibiting in the DemoPit on Monday, September 14th, 2009. Each of the 1,500 attendees were given one TC50 poker chip to vote for their favorite DemoPit company and YourVersion, a real-time discovery engine that launched at the conference, took the top honor.

Our CEO & Founder, Dan Olsen, delivered the last presentation of the day on stage to a packed auditorium and TechCrunch50’s Panel of Experts: Marissa Mayer, Marc Andreessen, Roelof Botha, Paul Graham, and Tony Hsieh. See video below of Olsen giving a demo of the YourVersion product to positive feedback from Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Search Products & User Experience at Google, who commended the product saying, “I thought the attention to detail in the usability testing was really obvious.”
