4:30-6:00 Hello Jason Demant, leader of the Seoul meetup!
6:00-7:00 Thank you to Seoul Space for sponsoring this meetup. Go to http://seoulspace.co.kr/ for more information.
7:00-9:00 First up is Victor Ching of DiDiNetworks, an outdoor ad display network that targets customers demographically and geographically.
9:00-9:30 How can you be sure of the demographic you're buying?
9:30-10:00 Jason gives the pitch a 7 and the idea a 7 or 8.
12:30-14:15 Are there competitors in your market in Seoul?
14:15-14:45 Tyler gives DiDiNetwork a 7.5.
14:45-16:30 Josh Kim pitches AdbyMe, an advertising network that allows customers to write ads and get a revenue share per click.
17:30-18:30 Jason gives the pitch an 8.
18:30-19:15 Tyler: I like it, but you could add is a hint of what's next. I give the pitch an 8.5.
20:00-22:00 Next is Richard Choi from Spoqa, a social loyalty card program that lets you earn points for your purchases and for your friends purchases.
23:00-25:30 Jason gives the pitch an 8 and the business a 9; Tyler does as well.
26:00-29:45 Thank you to MailChimp for sponsoring the show!
29:45-32:00 Tae Woo Kim pitches Moglue, an interactive eBook publishing platform that makes your books available for download.
33:45-35:30 Jason gives the pitch a 6 and the idea a 7--and Tyler does too.
36:30-37:30 Next, Oakyoon Cha pitches ShortEnuf, a temporary 5-letter domain shortener.
37:30-40:00 Jason shows the ShortEnuf website.
40:00-41:30 Tyler gives the pitch a 5.5 and the business a 5. Jason gives a 5 for both.
42:15-44:00 What's the best scenario you've used this short code for?
44:30-46:00 Insight from Tyler: It's like chewing your own toenails.
49:00-50:00 The last pitch is from Peter Yoon of PartyMonster, a site for group buying for clubs, concerts and venues in South Korea.
52:00-52:30 I think if you had a very tight, niche mailing list for this, that would be a great addition.
52:30-53:45 What do you give it Tyler?
56:00-57:45 Jason thinks Tyler's number one is Spoqa and his number two is Moglue (but it's really AdbyMe). Tyler thinks AdbyMe was Jason's number one pick. (It's not, it's his number two). Jason's number one is Spoqa.
57:45-59:00 Spoqua is the winner and has won a table at the LAUNCH Conference.
59:00-01:01:00 What is your company, Jason? (Unanchor.com)
01:01:00-01:01:45 Thank you so much for organizing this, Jason. Great work.
01:01:45-01:02:00 Thank you to Carbonite and MailChimp for sponsoring the show.
