Vote For Your Favorite Startup

Weigh in and tell us which startups you think have the most compelling technologies.

What's your favorite tech startup? InformationWeek will be holding a startup contest at the upcoming InformationWeek 500 conference, and we're inviting readers to participate in the process. By casting a ballot, you can help determine which startups get to make their pitch in front of InformationWeek's CIO audience.

Six startups will get five minutes each to present their business case before more than 200 CIOs and other senior IT executives and a panel of CIO judges. Participating startups will be required to address a common set of criteria of relevance to IT professionals -- cost, security, and management tools, for example -- and they'll be judged on the answers they provide.

The InformationWeek 500 conference will be held Sept. 14 to 16 at the St. Regis Resort in Monarch Beach, Calif. The startups invited to participate will be chosen by InformationWeek editors, taking into account the results of this reader survey.

Following is a list of business-oriented startups, all of which have been profiled in InformationWeek's Startup City blog or interviewed on Startup City TV. We're also providing a write-in ballot for other startups. Vote for the startup whose technology offers the highest potential for use in your company.
