First of all, we would like to thank everybody for participating in #StartupLove hashtag and spreading the love to deserving startups.
First, some data:
There were close to 1089 tweets and we did a quick word cloud visualization and here it is!
Did you notice something? The word cloud isn’t about NextBigWhat or UnPluggd – it’s about the community and we take pride in being the curator of this, the initiator who gets all this started, ‘activates’ a few souls to spread some serious #startuplove!
And for us, this is the most amazing thing!
In terms of Twitter client, Tweetdeck obviously ruled, followed by web client and Android client.
– The only VC fund (and this is just for data sake) that was mentioned was Blume Ventures (though a few other VCs also participated).
And now, time to announce the winners
Selected randomly by Microsoft Excel rand function, here goes the list (twitter @handles) :
@vasanth_, @NamanSr, @LOSTST4R, @_sdrth_ @robin_a_p
The NextBigWhat team will get in touch with you early next week for further updates.
And A Bit More #StartupLove
Truly speaking, we were blown away with the response. The love was showered not just on the known startup names (the regular ones like RedBus, Flipkart, InMobi etc etc), but a whole lot of startups who are trying their bit to change the world.
