Tech.Co’s Celebrate 2015 is just around the corner – a celebration of all things startup that will include mentor sessions, inspiring keynotes, workshops, and our Startup of the Year Competition. All year long, we’ve hit cities like Las Vegas, NV; Pittsburgh, PA; and New York City; meeting with each startup ecosystem’s members, entrepreneurs, and investors, while adding to our list of Celebrate 2015 semifinalists. And, now, we’re turning to the north to find some of the best startups (and by “north”, we mean the expansive set of land from Washington to Massachusetts).

(Get the GIF? Because…the north? Whatever). In order to discover the world’s best early-stage businesses, we invite our online readers to vote for their favorite by selecting their favorite startups in our regional online polls. Across the country, several tech ecosystems are producing top startups that many people don’t even know about. For many, it may even come as a surprise that cities like Ohio’s Cincinnati or Seattle, WA offer some of the best tech economies outside of Silicon Valley. In this poll, you’ll get a glimpse at some of the great work startups are doing in places like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.

So, tell us: which of these products from these companies would you buy, invest in, or seem most like to succeed? The winning companies in the poll will join us in Las Vegas, NV this October 4-6, where they will be exposed to dozens of investors, potential mentors and customers, and hundreds of startup enthusiasts. Additionally, the semifinalists will be eligible for prizes and awards from Tech Wildcatters, 500Startups, CEA, Crowdfunder, Techstars, American Airlines, and more!
