The tech publishing company will host a vote for the best startups in 85 cities in South Asia with over 100k people
DELHI, INDIA, August 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — HackerNoon, the technology publishing company, in partnership with freeCode Camp, the company reimagining financial systems so growing businesses can realize their full potential, has launched a startup of the year vote for all cities in South Asia above 100k people. The voting will last from now until Nov 18.
The HackerNoon editorial team has curated 589 startups in South Asia as part of their larger initiative to name a startup of the year for all 4k cities worldwide with over 100k people. While nominations are still ongoing, to date 30,000 startups in total have been nominated.
“It’s not easy to build a business,” said HackerNoon CEO David Smooke. “More businesses should be celebrated for not only surviving but also thriving through a worldwide pandemic. By bringing together sponsors, awards, and functions to aggregate the will of the people, we hope to accelerate the growth paths for thousands of startups around the world.”
This Startup of the Year experience is powered by HackerNoon’s custom voting software that previously powered Noonies 2019, Noonies 2020, and will be Noonies 2021, which is HackerNoon’s annual awards for rewarding technology leaders worldwide.
The Noonies are an annual tech industry awards event, presented online by Hacker Noon, built to recognize and reward the most innovative people and products in technology today. Conceptualized in early 2019, Hacker Noon’s first annual Noonies celebrated the contributions of over 500 internally and publicly nominated technologists, thinkers, makers, and leaders in tech. Their third edition will run for an extended period of six months, with public nominations open since next month.
In words of Storm Farell, HackerNoon’s full stack developer, “Startups is just a fork off the Noonies with a fresh lick o’ paint and some structural differences. But it’s powered by the same voting system.”
If Indian startup scene only maintained its course through the pandemic, it would be considered a success. The pandemic wasn’t the least bit gentle on the entire South Asia region. However, what they did instead is raised 70% of the amount raised in the entire 2020 in the first four months of the 2021. Who are the startup teams behind $7.8 billion raised and how did they pull it off?
