I think we can all agree 2012 has been a momentous year for the local startup scene.
The Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center (CEC) is honored to be a hub of this city’s expanding entrepreneurial community and is thrilled at the local and national attention generated by our flagship project, 1871.
We believe the growing spotlight on Chicago makes this year’s Momentum Awards—an evening that recognizes the past, present, and future of entrepreneurship in this city—a special night indeed.
It’s a night where leaders from the business, civic, and education sectors come together with successful entrepreneurs and the next generation of breakout startup companies to celebrate the growth of ideas in this city and the recognition that Chicago can compete with either coast and the rest of the world.
We at the CEC would love to see more young companies on the cusp of greatness at this event rubbing shoulders with the people who make Chicago the thriving mecca it is.
And here’s what we’re doing to make that possible…
Starting today, the CEC is collecting nominations for a local startup to win two free tickets to the Momentum Awards.
Nominated companies should be thriving Chicago-based startups with under $250,000 in annual revenue. We’ll accept nominations through 11:59pm, Tuesday, October 9, 2012. Later that week voting will take place to pick a winner and runner up from the top nominated companies.
So, spread the word, and get your nominations in today.
