Nationwide 'Startup Tour' to Find the Best Startups in America

on March 10, 2010 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

Robert X. Cringely, author of the technology blog “I, Cringely” (, has launched a plan to restart the economy called “Cringely's (NOT in Silicon Valley) Startup Tour.” People are invited to nominate startup companies in six different categories, discuss them, and vote for favorites on a special website created just for the tour.

After about six weeks of collecting nominations and reviewing candidates, Cringely will announce the top 24 companies. He will then take the show on the road this summer, with a camera crew, to visit all 24 companies to learn about the businesses and the entrepreneurs who started them. Ultimately, the stories he collects will become a 12-hour reality TV series to be broadcast on a major cable network.

PDE readers are encouraged to participate in this initiative. You can click here to nominate and vote.
