Seeking America's Best Young Entrepreneurs

Posted by: John Tozzi on June 28, 2011

We’re seeking your suggestions for our 2011 America’s best young entrepreneurs roundup. For the seventh year, we’re asking readers to scour the startup world for the most promising companies run by entrepreneurs 25 or younger. Suggest companies for us to look into using the form below through July 31. Then our reporters and editors will choose 25 to profile, and ask readers to vote for the ones they think hold the most promise. We’ll announce the five companies that got the most votes in the fall.

To qualify, companies must:

1) be based in the United States.

2) have no co-founders older than 25 on July 31, 2011. (That means if any one of a company’s founders was born before July 31, 1985, the company doesn’t qualify.)

3) disclose revenue for 2010 and projected revenue for 2011 (we won’t consider companies without this).

Suggest companies using the form below through July 31, and watch for our roundup in the fall. For a look at last year’s finalists, click here.

I have been an entrepreneur for over 20 years with stories that would tear your heart out. I am well over 25. I wish young entrepreneurs all the best however, I feel this contest evokes fundamental age discrimnation.
At least one attorney I have spoken with agrees.
