It’s Shipbob vs. SpringCM for the Tech Madness Chicago championship.
After more than 70,000 votes have been cast, we’re down to just two teams in Chicago Inno’s annual Tech Madness bracket competition. After beginning with 64 fast-growing Chicago startups, we’re left with 7-seed Shipbob, a startup that helps small businesses with delivery logistics, against 2-seed SpringCM, a business software startup that helps companies manage sales contracts and other documents. (Scroll down to vote for your favorite to win the competition.)
We set out by asking you all, our dear readers, to vote on each matchup based on who you would like to “invest” in. We kept that purposely subjective; you could invest in a startup because you hoped to get the biggest return on your investment, or simply because you believed in the company’s mission. The goal, at the end of the day, was to create a friendly competition that highlights the Chicago startup ecosystem.
And in just a few days, we’ll be crowning a winner. Voting will be open until Thursday, April 5, when we’ll reveal the winner at 10 a.m. Along with bragging rights, the winning company will also receive a Tech Madness basketball with their logo to mark their victory.
