Like March Madness, Venture Madness also has a bracket challenge that anyone can fill out and submit for a chance to win prizes! The first place winner (entrant with the highest points) will receive a MacBook Air ($999 value), and second place (entrant with second-highest points) will receive a 64 GB iPad Air 2 WiFi ($599 value)- both to be awarded by Invest Southwest. Click here to view complete contest rules.
Right now, we are asking all of our users and social media friends to get involved. You have until 5 PM (MST) on January 18, 2015, to complete and submit your bracket. The startup with the most amount of brackets labeling it (ahem, Outski) as the champions wins the People's Choice Award, and $5,000 cash. This competition is independent of the official judging, so YOU have all the power to choose the winner of this award!
Our social media guru, Rachel, recently went through and created an account and took screenshots of the process, so that you can see what it looks like.
