AOA Startup Grant 2017 early leaderboard

AOA Startups 2017 applicants poster billboard

Crowd voting to pick two of the finalists for this year's $2,500 AOA Startup Grant began Monday, so we figured it'd be a good time to check in on the leaderboard. The top five vote-getting projects as of Wednesday morning:

1. Olive and June Floral Co.

2. Bard & Baker Board Game Cafe

3. Adirondack Barnwood Salvage

4. Call Sheilah!

5. Gannon's List

The full leaderboard with vote totals is below.

And the applications for those five -- and all the other projects -- are available for you to skim through at that link above. You'll see info about how to vote, too. It's easy.

There's still plenty of opportunity to vote -- crowd voting ends September 20 at noon. And in the past we've had some projects get a quick early start before being overtaken. A handful of votes can make a difference.

So if you haven't voted, go check out the entries and pick your favorites. And if you already have a favorite, take a few minutes to look through some of the entries to pick a second. As is the case every year, there are a bunch of interesting projects that are worth your attention.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
