We’re very excited to announce our first tech sponsor, Bundlr.com! Founded by 2 young Portuguese innovators, their idea was motivated by a need to gather and share photos, videos and feedback that was being published online for a specific conference; unfortunately, no tool existed. Or should I say “fortunately”, because today, with the help of SeedCapital, you can select the relevant content about a given topic, be it photos, videos, tweets, presentations or articles and place them in 1 specific location.
Additionally, with the recent partnering with Embedly – Twitters version to embed media, Bundlr now supports over 200 sources of content, including Storify, Pinterest and Amazon, for users to add to their bundles.
If you attended last year’s EWBC, you might have remembered Ryan’s talk on storytelling tools (list of tools here) such as Storify, which can be used to create stories from curated links and content, Bundlr creates a top-level resource for curated content around a specific story or topic.
Bundlr’s co-founder, Sérgio Santos, chose to support the EWBC based on its community. “We didn’t know much about the digital wine community until Ryan started using Bundlr one year ago. We were impressed by how tight and engaging the wine community was, especially in Europe. And as we want to attract more bloggers to Bundlr the EWBC felt like a great place to start.”
From our perspective, the benefit of Bundlr is that you don’t have to think about what you are trying to grab, Bundlr will just support it. If you’re researching a particular wine topic, you can search within Bundlr for what people are already curating and so other users become your collaborators, rather than you having to start from scratch.

Sergio sees a few additional benefits. “The types of content around wine are increasingly diversified (articles, images, videos, presentations…) and Bundlr is a useful tool to save and present online content, from two perspectives: 1. you can quickly clip content and embed it on a blog or 2. build an audience interested in the best content about a wine subject that can include video, tweets, photos, articles, etc.”
Fantastic idea and great tool! The EWBC organizers have been playing with Bundlr over the past few weeks and have found it incredibly useful, and hopefully you will as well!
