12 New York City-based startups are featured in the “Only in the Alley” 2012 calendar, and our founders Mark, Phil, and Max are gracing the page for the month of April.
We started Livestream because when we founded it in 2007, there weren’t any sites that enabled the average consumer to broadcast their own live videos. Even YouTube, though incredibly popular, had only on-demand, short form content. We filled the void, and now, almost five years later, we’ve got 120 employees and five offices around the world, and we’re the market leader for real-time event coverage online. Using Livestream, anyone anywhere in the world can broadcast events as they happen, plus add photos, text, and video using web browsers and mobile devices. We came to New York not out of spite for Silicon Valley, but because it’s simply where we wanted to live. Where else do world-class art, music, tech,finance, and media scenes overlap? Only In The Alley!
