It’s almost here: Celebrate 2015 is the time of year when we celebrate all things startup, which includes mentor sessions, inspiring keynotes, and workshops. Though, perhaps everybody’s favorite part of the conference is our Startup of the Year Competition.
Over the course of the entire year we’ve been hosting events in awesome tech ecosystems across Tampa, San Francisco, and Boston. We’ve been honored and excited to meet with the local community members, investors, and innovators who keep the wheels turning in each of their own cities. With all of these events comes a list of Celebrate 2015 semifinalists that won’t stop growing until they all journey to the Las Vegas desert from October 4-6.
All of the semifinalists who compete in our Startup of the Year Competition will be exposed to dozens of investors and hundreds of other startup enthusiasts and founders. Not to mention, all of the startups will be eligible for prizes and awards from some of the best in the biz: Tech Wildcatters, 500Startups, CEA, Crowdfunder, Techstars, and American Airlines, to name a few.
Austin, Texas is widely considered to have one of the best live music scenes in America, and their BBQ is always on the top of everybody’s ‘favorites’ list (I’m looking at you, Salt Lick). These days however, Austin, Texas is also synonymous with entrepreneurship and robust tech ecosystems.
So, check out the best we met in Austin and let us know which ones are your favorite.
Please note: Only your last vote will count, and results will not be displayed immediately as the voting period will remain open through August 31 at 12 Midnight EST and we will announce all of the winners on Tuesday, September 1!
