Still Full From Thanksgiving? Our Fastest Rising Startup Is Already On Its Next Course

Sit back, take a big deep breath and make some more room for us because the 9th Annual Crunchies Awards is coming up quick, and nominations are in full swing. The deadline is coming up next week on Friday, December 4th, 2015 at 5PM, and we want your input on which company you think has been the Fastest Rising Startup of 2015.

The Fastest Rising Startup award goes to a company that has demonstrated the strongest growth this year, or may just be on the cusp of really blowing up. The past three winners in this category were Yik Yak (2014), Upworthy (2013) and Snapchat (2012) — big names that are still getting bigger.

We have 11 other categories and will be singling some of them out in the coming days. Hop over and get your nominations in for who you think should win: your initial nominations will help TechCrunch editors shape the group of finalists, with the winners chosen by the Crunchies Board.
