Tech startups are invited to nominate themselves for coverage by completing an online application that involves basic information about their offerings, founders, and funding. Entrepreneurs can find a link to the form on InformationWeek's related Startup City weblog or by clicking here.
InformationWeek editors will evaluate the submissions received each week and choose a newbie to write about in the magazine. Startups that complete our online application will also be considered for other types of editorial coverage, including blog postings, news stories, and features.
The ground rules: We're mainly interested in tech startups geared toward business environments, less so in consumer-oriented gadgets and Web sites. They should have a business model, funding, and a year or two of experience, including, preferably, early adopter customers.
Some of the companies we've written about on InformationWeek's two-month-old Startup City weblog serve as examples. Take a look. They include Aggregate Knowledge, AlarmPoint, Baynote, Jaxtr, Kosmix, , and Workday.
So, the gates to InformationWeek's Startup City are officially thrown open. You'll be hearing more about those that come through in the weeks ahead.
