Broadcastr Wins ‘Most Attractive for Investment’ Audience Award

The storytelling site Broadcastr won the “Most Attractive for Investment” audience award at the inaugural Next Big Thing event at The Paley Center for Media last week.

Electric Literature c0-founders Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum introduced Broadcastr at the eBook Summit last year,  a storytelling app that will let people record audio versions of location-specific stories around the globe–like Foursquare for storytellers. Above, we’ve embedded a video of the presentation.

Here’s more from Lindenbaum from the release (embedded below): “We were excited to discuss ideas with other start-ups and leaders in the field … The start-up space is competitive, like snowboarding, and you want to be successful. But it’s also about seeing what’s possible, and advancing the community as a whole.”
