Venture Madness, presented by Invest Southwest, in partnership with Arizona Commerce Authority announced the next round of 32 startups, from the original 64, to advance to round two in the head-to-head competition.
Round two is critical as the public vote will directly help their favorite startup advance to the live pitch portion of Venture Madness where they will compete for $50,000 in shared prizes on March 5-7 at Talking Stick Resort.
Public voting will begin at 10 a.m. MST on Monday, February 17 and end at 3 p.m. MST, Friday, February 21. If you don’t think your vote matters, think again. The public vote plays into the overall decision as to which company advance. Jonathan Ariano, chairman of Invest Southwest explains, “We are using a blend of judges’ scores and online voting to determine which companies advance. The majority of each company’s score comes from the judges, but notably, a strong showing of public votes helped several companies advanced to round two.”
