Recently we had the opportunity to sponsor a terrific event: The Founder Institute’s pitch competition and networking event, the Founder Showcase. At New Relic, we’ve always had an affinity for high-tech startups and we still think of ourselves as one even though we’ve been around for a bit. (Can you believe we are turning five at the end of the year?) We admire the Founder Institute for its dedication to creating and fostering local startup ecosystems around the world through it’s world-class training curriculum. We also admire the startups themselves for their unwavering dedication to transforming ideas into reality, often times accomplished through the use of new tools and technologies that can help them stay agile as they grow.
To recognize those who participated in the Founder Showcase, we teamed with the Founder Institute to give away some cool prizes to a couple of lucky startups, and now it’s time to announce the winners!
* The iPad Mini, raffled off at the event, went to Edward Valentini.
* The grand prize, six months of New Relic Pro, goes to…Spikes! Congrats!
* Sortbox, the runner up, will also receive 3 months of New Relic Pro!
Congratulations again to the winners! New Relic will reach out to you directly with details about how to claim your free New Relic (which includes some modest restrictions).
Last but not least, we’re announcing a special promotion for the rest of the Showcase attendees: 30 days of free New Relic Pro! Woohoo!
We were very pleased to be a part of the Founder Showcase and we look forward to working together with the Founder Institute again in the future, so stay tuned…
