After nearly 700 votes, the matchups are set for the second round of Colorado Inno’s inaugural Tech Madness bracket.
Round one featured a number of tight matchups, with many decided by only a few votes. In the tightest matchup, number one overall seed TeamSnap barely knocked off 16-seed NoCow by a three vote margin.
On the other side of the bracket, Rowdy Mermaid edged out ROAM by five votes in the seven-ten matchup.
It wouldn’t be a March Madness-style bracket without an upset, as 11-seed Zestful, beat out 6-seed Assignar, taking 58 percent of the votes.
It may be an upset when you consider only the seeds, but 9-seed Proximity Space easily defeated 8-seed Left Hand Robotics, garnering 91 percent of the vote. Proximity Space was the top vote getter of round one.
With Round 2 set, we’re excited to see 1-seed TeamSnap match up with 9-seed Proximity Space and upset story 11-seed Zestful take on Rachio.
Remember: readers are answering just one question – who would you invest in?
This can be interpreted a number of different ways. Is this about which startup could deliver the highest return? Who you think is the safest bet? Or is it about supporting a project or mission you’re passionate about? How ever you want to interpret that question is up to you. That’s Tech Madness!
