Nibletz, the voice of startups everywhere else wants to know who you think the startup community leader of the year is. Who is driving entrepreneurship, innovation, and change in your community? Who is serving as a catalyst among the people in your community?
Now we love Tony Hsieh and Brad Feld, but they are very well known community leaders who actually speak about community leaders all the time. We want to know the names of the people in your area that we may not know. Is there a person who takes startups under his or her wing and helps them get to the next level?
Is there a startup founder that has taken his or her good fortune and spread it around the startup community?
We are taking nominees from now until November 15th. Just email your pick’s name and up to three paragraphs about why they would be the Startup Community Leader of the Year. On November 15th we will put the top 10 nominees up for a nationwide vote.
The Startup Community Leader of the Year will get a chance to speak at Everywhere Else Tennessee, February 17-19th 2014, free room during the conference at the Sheraton Downtown Memphis thanks to our friends at the Marston Group, and three extra VIP attendee tickets, one for whoever nominated that person and two for the winners friends, relatives or other startup partners.
Start sending your stories and nominees to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get the top 10 posted for voting by November 15th. Remember we’re looking for strong community leaders in your local community and that’s about the only rule. Oh and you can’t nominate yourself.
The address for nominations again is email@example.com. Don’t forget to add up to three paragraphs about why this person is your nominee for Startup Community Leader Of The Year.
Make sure you’ve got your ticket or Startup Avenue booth!
