Region’s Best Startup Contestants 2015


Voting Rules

Each day for the next three days – April 21, 22 and 23, between 9am and 11pm – you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite entry.

The contestants that receive the most votes will be among the 2015 Finalists.

No robo-voting:
Robo-voting will get a team disqualified. Startup supporters may vote from multiple devices per day, as long as they have distinct IP addresses. Read more about the voting rules

IMPORTANT NOTE – IP addresses:
Please note that if a group of voters are all trying to vote from the same office, home, or public WIFI or LAN internet connection, only one person would be able to vote. Everyone else will be blocked since anyone on the same network would have the same external IP. If you are having this problem, please try voting on a mobile device that is not connected to WIFI.
