It's almost here: Celebrate 2015 is the time of year when we celebrate all things startup, which includes mentor sessions, inspiring keynotes, workshops for founders and tech employees, and the Startup of the Year Competition. All year long, we have been making stops in places like Tampa, FL; San Francisco, CA; and Boston, MA; meeting with the community members, investors, and innovators who keep the wheels turning in each startup ecosystem. The list of Celebrate 2015 semifinalists continues to grow until we bring them all together in Las Vegas October 4-6.
Semifinalists who compete in Las Vegas will be exposed to dozens of investors and hundreds of startup enthusiasts who will mix and mingle with these startup founders, listen to their pitch, give them pointers, and potentially become their next customers or partners. And besides being a part of such a thrilling and interactive atmosphere, these startups will be eligible for prizes and awards from Tech Wildcatters, 500Startups, CEA, Crowdfunder, Techstars, American Airlines, and more!
The Fargo startup community is just about one of the most supportive and innovative you will find. Their 1 Million Cups program is a model chapter, with gatherings that often number in the hundreds.
In order to discover the world's best early-stage businesses, we invite our online readers to vote for their favorite by selecting among the startups in our regional online polls. So, tell us: which of these products would you buy, invest in, or most like to succeed?
