The Crunchies are just around the corner (January 31, to be exact). Nominations for Silicon Valley’s annual technology awards co-hosted by GigaOm, VentureBeat and TechCrunch end tomorrow at midnight PT. So this is your last chance to tell us who is worthy of a Crunchie for Best Startup, Best Mobile App, Best Design, Best Technology Achievement, or any of the other categories. There are 20 categories in all.
More than 280,000 nominations are already in, but the more votes the better. And if you think a startup or product really deserves recognition, you can campaign on its behalf by sharing your nominations on Twitter or Facebook. Vote more than once.. Nominate your own startup (everyone else does). We’ll tally all the votes, put it through our patented anti-gaming filters, and announce the finalists in early January when you can vote again for the final winners. (Yup, it’s a two-stage process, folks. Stay with me). Nominate now.
I am particularly interested to see who gets nominated for best Angel investor this year. It seems like all the usual suspects are now full-fledged VCs (just don’t cal them that to their face). Who do you think is the best angel of 2011? Okay, then who is the best VC? And are those two the same person?
