Tech Crunch (Jason Calacanis) announced the winner of the TechCrunch40 award and I was naturally a little curious about the winner: MINT. With the award, Mint receives $50K. See Financial Crunchbase Stats. Here is a description of the Mint application (direct from Tech Crunch site):
“Mint is a personal finance application that lets users track and monitor their financials in one place without the need of routine maintenance or accounting knowledge. Their application tracks bank, credit union and credit card transactions and alerts users to upcoming bills, low balances or unusual spending. Mint’s patent-pending technology automatically categorizes transactions, so users know with precision where they are spending money, what their bank and credit balances are, and how much interest they have earned.”
It’s free and it offers the online agglomerator of all my different financials that I have been doing for the longest time manually. A great tool. Sign me up!
