Club Answer held the annual TechCrunch Pitch-off in Seoul and the big winner was AI Korean Startup Konolabs. They were the winners out of 10 companies that pitched in front of a panel of 4 judges that included entrepreneurs and editors at TechCrunch. Each team had 60 seconds to share their ideas in front of the audience, following a short Q&A session afterward to answer questions about their product from the judges. Konolabs was able to impress the judges with their concept and will be heading to London for TechCrunch Disrupt London in December. The service uses AI as well as big data to create a virtual scheduler to keep people organized and help with assistance.  Think of it as your very own virtual secretary. The CEO of Konolabs is YJ Min who left Daum, a Korean internet giant to start his own company.  Konolabs is in beta at the moment but has raised funding and have taken part in U.S. based accelerator programs. Daebaki, a fortune telling online service and Zungle a bone-conduction headphone/sunglasses, who were the audiences favorites, will be joining Konolabs at TechCrunch Disrupt London.
