It’s time to meet our 15 CROWDFUNDx NYC Challenge Finalists! We saw more than 130 companies enter for a chance to win $25k and independent meetings with our capital partners. Today, we want you to meet the top. We present to you our CROWDFUNDx NYC Challenge Finalists:

Social Enterprise
Charity Miles
Borne Digital

Small Business
The Sill
Made in the Lower East Side
I Love Free Concerts


Congratulations to each of them! From providing personalized data on your driving history to reinventing how we look at apartment renting and how children read, these companies are on the right track.

In two weeks on July 17th, they’ll be taking the stage to present for a chance at our $25,000 Grand Prize. Our CROWDFUNDx Challenge Event will close out our full-day conference, where we’ll be highlighting the best knowledge around crowdfunding. We’ve pulled top experts on the topic together, including Sherwood Neiss (original co-author of the crowdfund framework in the JOBS Act), and are offering you a full day of learning and interactive workshops to help put your business ahead.

You need to be there, and you can get your tickets now here.

Want to just catch the competition? We’ll have an open bar and live judging. Get your tickets for it here.

A special thanks to our partners who helped spread the word about our Challenge: BetaBeat, NYC EDC, NY Tech Meetup, Grind, Social Innovators Collective, The Feast and NASDAQ.

We look forward to seeing you at CROWDFUNDx on July 17th.
