SoundGuard Selected as Semi-Finalist for Startup of the Year
SoundGuard was recently selected as a Top 100 Global Semifinalist for the 2018 Startup of the Year Award. This year’s class of Semifinalists come from 43 states and 46 countries. As a Semifinalist the SoundGuard team was invited to attend Innovate Celebrate in Boston, MA on October 15th-17th to compete for $500,000 in prizes. Innovate Celebrate, co-hosted by Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and Established (formerly TechCo Media), is the premier global conference bridging the gap between the very best emerging startups and the world’s leading technology brands.
During the Innovate Celebrate Conference, our Founder and CEO, Jonah Lupton, was able to meet entrepreneurs and investors from around the world as well as showcase the company to a room full of community members, business executives and startup enthusiasts. There was also a phenomenal group of speakers, judges and mentors which can be found on the Innovate website at InnovateCelebrate.com
Although SoundGuard was not named one of the 5 Finalists, we were still very honored to be included with so many amazing early-stage companies. Considering that Uber and Grubhub were also Semifinalists and went on to build massively successful companies with billions in revenue — we have a lot to be excited about. SoundGuard was chosen as one of the top 100 startups from around the world out of thousands of applicants and for that we are grateful and proud.
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to Innovate, Established, the CTA, as well as all of the other competing startups and founders for including us — we look forward to watching your success over the coming years.
