Introducing: The VentureFizz Spark Award - Celebrating The Hottest Companies in NYC Tech

Every month, there are thousands of companies in NYC that are hustling relentlessly. Whether they're raising a venture round or still grinding out a prototype, the companies making it happen form the spark that lights the New York tech scene's fire.

We think it is important to take a moment to recognize that hustle and reward the companies who are incredibly innovative and are seeing tremendous momentum.

This led us to create the VentureFizz Spark Award.

It is a monthly award for companies that are nominated and then voted on by you... the NYC tech community. The award will recognize early-stage companies that have a spark which is most likely going to ignite into something much greater.

Here's how it works.

Each month, we'll open things up for nominations. We'll narrow the field down to the top 5 companies who are deserving of the honor. Then, we will create a poll for everyone to ultimately vote for the winner. The winner will be profiled in a video interview which will be featured on VentureFizz at the end of the month. 

Our only requirement for nominations is that companies must be a startup that is either Series A funded or earlier.

We are kicking things off today! You can submit your nomination using the form below. The deadline for nominations is Friday (November 9th) at 5 pm. We'll publish the poll next week for voting. Let's get this fire going!
