AOA Startups 2017 applicants poster billboard

We're now in the final stretch of crowd voting to pick of the finalists for this year's $2,500 AOA Startup Grant. Here are the five projects with the most votes as of Monday morning:

1. Bard & Baker: Board Game Cafe

2. Olive and June Floral Co.

3. Adirondack Barnwood Salvage

4. The Makeup Curio

5. Call Sheilah!

The top two have definitely built up a gap between them and the rest of the field. But a late push could among the other top-five projects could make things interesting.

Also: Crowd voting support is something the editors take into account when making their selection for the third spot in the finals.

The full leaderboard with vote totals is below.

Crowd voting ends this Wednesday, September 20 at noon! So there's still plenty of time of vote. And take a few minutes to look over this year's applications -- they're all posted online for you to scan. The applications and voting instructions are at the link above.

Comments

I think it would be a riot to include 1 fake business in the mix the next go round. Like a startup that wants to offer free range, cage free honey, someone making jewelry out of pulled teeth, or a photo studio called "despu├ęs de la muerte" specializing in pictures of a very specific type of specific pet.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
