Emotely was accepted and called up to talk to Paul Graham and Michael Arrington at Techcrunch Disrupt. The panel was called ‘Office Hours’ which is a simulation of the structured meetings Paul Graham has with all the Startup teams accepted into YCombinator’s Startup School.
Michael Arrington is the founder of Tech Crunch, one of or maybe the biggest Tech News site. Paul Graham is the founder of the above mentioned YCombinator Startup Program which has become the biggest such program in the United States (Perhaps the world?).
Here’s the video clip of Michael Arrington and Paul talking about Emotely. See the full Office Hours video here.
Partial transcript of the Office Hours talk:
“Francois Laberge of Emotely.”
“Oh, I like this one!”
“Is he here?”
“…Not that I didn’t like the other ones, I just remember that Emotely was kind of cool!”
“Is Emotely here? No?”
“That’s too bad, I was hoping to hear you give him advice.”
“Who’s in charge of this event?!”
It was unfortunate we couldn’t make it out to Techcrunch Disrupt in NYC. Talking to Paul and Michael would have been a great experience.
