Sorry we didn’t update sooner. Sunday at 11pm we found out we had won the East Coast part of the competition. Then we spent the next day preparing to pitch before some of the biggest angel investors in the world in the nationwide finals. We presented although there were technical difficulties. At midnight, the news broke: Boston had indeed beat San Francisco and we were the winners!
What an amazing further validation for us. One of the prizes was tickets on the Startup Bus to go to SXSW, the biggest tech and music stage in the world.
So now after 3 days on a bus with shoddy power and Internet, we are 1 hour away from our dream event.
Kickstarter is going live in the next 24 hours! We had to push it early because of the amazing traction we got. We are super excited about this!!!
Over AngelHack, we built a revolutionary component for our software. It was an extremely difficult technical challenge because no one had done it. So we had to write everything from scratch.
So…what we built: we can now grab any tab file from the Internet, parse it into what the phone can understand, and stream that song in real time to the phone. This means that our library of songs is almost unlimited in its capabilities. So we are working hard to make sure we can present Tabber users with any song they want to learn, not just the classics.
That’s our update, we’ll keep you posted on how SXSW goes!!
