Banking 2.0 – FinovateStartup: Focus on Expensr

FinovatestartuplogoI covered the first Finovate event organized by Jim Bruene back in October 2007 (in New York City). The event was such a success (it sold out in only 6 weeks) that Jim decided to organize two more Finovate events in 2008: FinovateStartup & Finovate 08.

I was delighted when Jim invited me to be the official live blogger on NetBanker at FinovateStartup in San Francisco.  Before the event, I plan to blog about most of the 40 startups which will demo their products. My goal is to give you a brief overview of those innovative startups.

Expensr, another online community focused on personal finance
ExpensrI contacted Reman Childexpensr‘s co-Founder, via Linkedin.

ExpensrEven though the online personal finance management space is crowded, with clear leaders like Mint or Wesabe, expensr managed to be listed as one of the 15 companies that will change the world.
