Stop procrastinating and nominate your favorite startup, founder or investor for a Crunchie. Nominations will close on Thursday, November 3, 2016. That’s just two weeks before the nominations close.
We’re looking for the input of the tech community. Who was the hottest new startup? Who launched the best new technology? Which company had the best launch video? There are 11 categories in all.
This is the 10th anniversary of the Crunchies and we’re thrilled to put the show on again. Like last year, the winners will be decided by a large panel of experts. Called the Crunchies Board, this group includes TechCrunch editors, alongside entrepreneurs, investors and other tech notables, including speakers and judges who have appeared on the Disrupt stage. An independent third-party will administer and tally the ballots, as well as keep the results secret until the awards are announced onstage.
General admission tickets will be available when the show is a bit closer. We’ll see you at the Crunchies!
