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.
