Q&A: Yaron Binur of Redbeacon on exchanging local services online

Redbeacon won this year's TechCrunch50 contest, getting $50,000 and bragging rights as on of the most promising startups of the year.  Previous TechCrunch winners have gone on to great success. Mint.com was purchased this year for $170 million by Intuit just two years after winning TechCrunch's best-in-show prize.

The San Mateo-based company streamlines the model of online transactions in the same way that OpenTable did for restaurant reservations. Consumers can search for services like plumbers, bakers and contractors and arrange appointments through the site.

Co-founder Yaron Binur is a former Google product manager who started the company with two other ex-Googlers: Ethan Anderson and Aaron Lee. I asked him about how Redbeacon plans to change local service exchange and we can expect from the company in the coming year.
