Thank you! Ross and Mike | January 6th, 2009
We asked for your help and you voted like mad. And not just voted. You wrote emails. You made calls. You blogged. You tweeted. You (apparently) yelled from the rooftops (we heard). And it worked.
We are humbled, awed, proud, inspired, and (deeply) in debt to you.
WIRED let us know late yesterday: crowdSPRING is the winner of the 2008 Wired Small Biz Program! We don’t know the final vote count yet, but thanks to your efforts (and your votes) we came out at the top of the pile.
Five new businesses from around the country were profiled on the WiredBiz site. In addition to crowdSPRING, Tonebox Digital, Scryve, LiveSpeakR, and Greenlines were finalists in the competition. These companies distribute music digitally, rate companies on their social responsibility, make portable speakers for the iPhone, and produce boardshorts from recycled materials! Talk about range and innovative approaches to doing business online and off. We were so proud to be included in this group and we congratulate each of them for their hard work and their entrepreneurial spirit.
So… thanks again to all of you. We will do our best to live up to your opinion of us and we will continue to build and support the kind of community that can take a little company like ours and help vault it to the top!
Happy New Year!
Mike & Ross
