Voyager Award IconWe are profiling each award for the Twin Cities Startup Week Awards in October and today we are kicking off with the Voyager Award for those who are successfully bootstrapping their technology organization. Don’t miss your chance to submit someone for the Voyager Award! Nominations will close tomorrow, September 24, at Midnight.

This year we are looking for organizations or individuals who have built a company from the ground up without funding. We will be celebrating these resourceful leaders with the Voyager Award. Do you know of a successful bootstrapper? Nominate them now!

The Voyager Award is sponsored by SureSwift Capital. SureSwift Capital buys bootstrapped businesses. Their mission is to cut the frustration out of the selling process, enabling founders to either confidently walk away – or stay involved in the SureSwift projects that tap their passion. Their uniquely entrepreneurial approach has helped the company acquire – and grow – over 30 companies in just four years.

The Twin Cities Startup Week Awards Ceremony is co-hosted by Ernst & Young and Tech.MN. Awards will be announced at the celebration on October 16th at the Science Museum of Minnesota. The event is a free ticketed event. Tickets will be released on October 2nd.
