Nominations For The 9th Annual Crunchies End Soon — Get Yours In Today

The 9th Annual Crunchies are right around the corner, and if we’re going to give out any awards to the great startups out there, we need your help.

We need to know who to give the coveted Crunchies out to this year, so be sure to nominate your favorite startups to help us narrow down the field to the best and brightest startups around. You can nominate one startup per day, per category, and nominations are open now through the end of day on December 4. So be sure to vote early and often to make sure your startup makes it to the big stage on Crunchies day.

You can nominate companies and people for the following awards:

Best New Startup of 2015

Best Overall Startup

Fastest Rising Startup

Best Technology Achievement

Best Mobile Application

Hardware of the Year

The Include Diversity Award

Social Impact

Founder of the Year

Angel Investor of the Year

VC of the Year

CEO of the Year

The nominees will be revealed in January, and the winners will be announced the night of the Crunchies — on February 8, 2016, at San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House.

You can witness the spectacle that some call the Oscars of Startups and Technology in person by grabbing a ticket on our ticketing page. For $115 (Dress Circle) or $150 (Orchestra), that ticket gets you into the show, as well as the festive after-party that includes a hosted bar, hors d’oeuvres, networking and other fun surprises we have in store for you.

We can’t wait to see you all there, but in the meantime, be sure to get your nominations in today. And tomorrow. And every day until December 4.
