Startup America Partnership collaborated with the New York Stock Exchange Euronext and the Entrepreneurs’ Organization on a FaceBook contest, The NYSE Bell Ringing Competition, earlier this year. As a result, a handful of finalists from all over the country were invited to ring The Closing Bell.
What does this have to do with SproutBox? Well, one of our Sprouts, CheddarGetter, is one of the finalists. Marc Guyer and Adam Quirk are in New York suiting up, yes this is a first for Marc, and hopefully putting on their mouse ears to ring The Bell.
This is great news for CheddarGetter and shows that tech companies don’t just come from the Coasts. CheddarGetter will proudly represent the Midwest, as they are the only startup invited from the region.
We are super excited for CheddarGetter and can’t wait to hear more about their experience about ringing The Closing Bell!
