Startup Boston's Community Awards

It's time to recognize the movers and shakers of the New England startup ecosystem.  

You can vote on the winner August 3rd! 

Last year, we launched Startup Boston's first ever Community Awards. And were taken by storm with the number of submissions made and how much the community celebrated one another during the voting process.


There were no strings, no submission fee attached, just a pure grassroots movement to celebrate our startup community and one another.

For our second annual Startup Boston Community Awards, we're going to stick with that spirit. All nominations and voting will be made by the startup community.

The judges are choosing the top 3 nominees in each category. Voting will open up on August 3rd.

Circle back on August 3rd to vote!
