I tend to think entrepreneurs are crazy if they’re trying to build a new social network. So Ami Ben-David and co. must be really crazy – they’re trying to beat Google at search.
Everything.me, or “The Everything Project,” is a mobile search engine that delivers easy-to-view, highly visual results. It evolved out of Do@, which called up results from within apps.
But are they really crazy? Investors don’t think so – they’ve put in $9 million. Everything.me is also backed by Ben-David’s experience investing and starting companies in mobile, and a darn beautiful interface (it’s a web app for now).
Ben-David shared his aspirations at our SXSW #StartupLife Celebration last weekend. In the video below, he explains the power of smartphones, why he’s a startup addict, and the value of patience.
