This March, BostInno is bringing the tech community together for some healthy competition… bracket-style.
Tech Madness is our annual bracket challenge designed to generate awareness and excitement for the city's ecosystem and those that are driving it forward.
BostInno assembles a bracket of 64 private, fast-growing, tech-enabled local businesses, seeds them based on funding, and asks the community to vote on each marchup, every round. Companies go head-to-head, with BostInno's readers determing who moves on by answer just one question - who would you invest in? (Last year, the BostInno Tech Madness bracket recorded a whopping 100,000 votes.)
The bracket will be assembled and seeded by BostInno's editorial team. Read about the 2018 Tech Madness finalists here!
Want your company to compete for a chance to cut down the net? Here's what you need to know...
Nominations close on January 29th.
After we close nominations, the Tech Madness selection committee will review the submissions and decide which local companies will compete in the bracket.
We will announce 60 finalists and invite everyone to the Tech Madness Party in March to see seedings, matchups and the final bracket
We will leave 4 slots open in the bracket. If your company was not announced as a finalist, then you will have a chance to pitch to our seleciton committee at the event for a "play-in slot." Onsite, the committee will pick the final 4 companies to be included in the bracket.
At the Tech Madness Party, each attendee will get a Round One bracket to fill out. Round one brackets completed onsite will count for 10 votes each. You'll want to bring the whole team to the event to make sure you rack up those votes.
After the Tech Madness Party and bracket reveal, companies will go head-to-head throughout 6 rounds with you, our readers, voting to determine who moves on from every matchup. Every week, we'll post the updated bracket and voting will begin again. After 6 rounds, we will anounce our 2018 Tech Madness Winner!
This March, don't miss our Tech Madness Party! If you're a part of the tech community or interested in the movers and shakers that are shaping the city's ecosystem, come out and get connected. We'll have lots of food, drinks and games for all.
This event is 21+. Guests must bring eventbrite ticket and valid ID to enter. No ticket refunds.
