BrandYourself Named New York’s Top Emerging Business: Wins $200K New York
Last week, BrandYourself was named the winner of New York’s Creative Core Business competition. With a $200K prize, it is the largest, privately-funded business award in the country. We could not be more honored or proud. We are not only the youngest team ever to win this award, but we are also the first team from Syracuse ever to win.You can get more details here and here.
We’ve had tremendous support from the entire community and we’re happy to bring this award to Syracuse.
The $200K is a nice boost to our business as we begin scaling. We now have over ten full-time employees and over the next 12 months we will be working hard on our mission: to be the easiest way to put your best foot forward on the web. Here’s what to expect
- A new home Dashboard that outlines your search engine visibility, your online promotion score, and specific actions you can take to improve each one
- A better recommendation engine that feeds you specific actions you can take to push undesired results down in Google, make more meaningful connections on twitter, attract more people to your site and more
- More tutorials and guides to make sure you get as much value out of our tools as possible
Keep it going! graFighters just closed a round for $200K as well. Need to see much more of this activity going forward.
