LAS VEGAS, Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The local initiative celebrating Las Vegas-based startup companies has officially launched its 2016 contest, which is now open for public voting. Launching Las Vegas was created to honor the hard work local startups and entrepreneurs devote to helping Vegas shine as a hub for business.
"I'm thrilled to see Launching Las Vegas grow in its second year," says Dr. Samir Pancholi, creator of the award. "We look forward to shining a spotlight on another dynamic group of Las Vegas-based entrepreneurs and getting the word out about their innovative ideas."
This year, the Launching Las Vegas team was excited to collaborate with other local innovators for the nomination process—including collaborative workspace Innevation and last year's winner, FindVeggies.
"Launching Las Vegas is all about our community and celebrating those who work hard to improve it," explains Dr. Pancholi. "It's an honor to work with others who have the same goals and see our shared vision benefitting the city."
The winner of the 2016 Launching Las Vegas award will be chosen by the community via an online voting system, open October 10, 2016 through October 26, 2016. Users will be able to vote for their favorite startup company once per day through the duration of the contest. The winner of the 2016 Launching Las Vegas Award will receive a $1,000 cash prize, and the runner-up will be awarded $250.
Four stand-out nominees were chosen for 2016: KeyIn, MentalHappy, Mint Locker, and Tealet. All of these companies offer a unique service, but they share a commitment to invigorating the Las Vegas entrepreneurial scene and bringing innovation to the community.
"We have another wonderful group of nominees this year," Dr. Pancholi states. "I encourage the community to spread the word about Launching Las Vegas, vote daily, and engage with these businesses—and I wish all of our nominees the best of luck!"
