Thanks to the help of our friends and customers, we are pleased to announce foodjunky is moving on to the final round of Google’s “Best Startup in Detroit” competition! The semi-final event took place last Wednesday at 1570 Woodward Ave. Hosted by Grand Circus, the event invited the public to come see the top startups in Detroit. Attendees received two votes to give to their favorite startups out of the twenty semi-finalists. The five startups with the most votes have moved on to the final round, which will host a total of seven different startups. We are honored to be listed alongside iRule, Wisely, GreenLancer, backstitch, Are You a Human, and myfab5.
The culminating event will be held this Wednesday at 6pm at Grand Circus once again. Each finalist will give a five minute pitch to the room, followed by three minutes of Q&A. After each team has pitched, a panel of judges will deliberate and then announce which startup will be heading to Silicon Valley to pitch to Google. Though the outcome of this event will not be decided by the public, a limited number of seats are available for those interested. Registration and more details for the event can be found here.
We would love to have all of our friends join us for the final event. Please sign-up to attend. Thank you all for the continued support and we hope to see you there!
UPDATE (2/27): We didn’t make it to Google but we’re cheering on iRule to represent Detroit!
