Nominate Boston for TechFellow Awards

The TechFellow Awards 2009 has been announced by Founders Fund to honor innovators  for excellence in high-tech entrepreneurship. Together with TechCrunch, they have pooled influence and finances to produce an excellent program to stimulate the pro-entrepreneur economy.

An impressive list of Internet luminaries will judge the contest and they will choose twelve Fellows to receive the Genius Grants for Geeks. Each winner will receive $50K to invest in a new start-up of their choice.

What we need to do is make sure that Boston has strong participation and a bevy of candidates nominated.

It would be great to see if we can marshal forces on Twitter and other means to nominate some of our best and brightest.

For example, now would be a good time to see the Hubspot fans in action to garner a nomination for  a certain founder and OnStartups blogger.

The four fields of nomination are:

Engineering Leadership

Product Design and Marketing

General Management

Disruptive Innovation

Nominate your choice now as voting ends midnight pst Friday, May 8. Help make sure that Boston is represented and recognized in the internet community.

If you have any nominees you would like to share and maybe gain them some support, leave a comment below.
