Dyn Sending Two New England Startups To LAUNCH Festival

Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), announced a contest that will send two New England-based startups to LAUNCH Festival, March 4-6 in San Francisco, CA.

Founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneur, angel investor and Dyn Board Of Directors member Jason Calacanis, the LAUNCH event is recognized as the premiere networking event for startups.

Criteria & Judging

Any New England-based startup with annual revenue under $5 million can participate by creating a 3-to-5 minute video telling their story and explaining why they should go to LAUNCH. Submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 10th via either Twitter (#DynLaunch and @DynInc).

Social sharing is just one of the key scoring components for the esteemed panel of judges that includes Dyn’s Director of Email Product, Mike Veilleux (founder of startup GearFreedom), Jamie Coughlin, CEO of the abi Innovation Hub and Aaron O’Hearn, CEO and co-founder of the Boston Startup School.

The Prize Packages

One (1) grand-prize winner will receive:

  • Two (2) tickets to the LAUNCH Festival, which will be held March 4-6
  • Airfare and Accommodations for two (2) people to San Francisco
  • Dinner in Boston with Dyn CEO Jeremy Hitchcock and CRO Kyle York

  • Thirty (30) minute meeting with Jason Calacanis

One (1) runner-up will receive two tickets to the LAUNCH Festival, airfare and accommodations for two persons, a Boston dinner with Hitchcock and York and a tour of Dyn’s Manchester, NH headquarters.

“We’re always bragging about the strong and diverse New Hampshire, Greater Boston and overall New England technology ecosystem,” York said. “Now is our chance to prove how developed it really is. Attending the LAUNCH Festival could change the future of your business, so we hope the New England startup scene really participates.”

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Feb. 13 and will need to be available to attend the conference March 4-6, with expected air travel on March 3 and March 7.
