Come join us for our 2018 End-Of-Year Celebration as we share and celebrate the impact and contributions of our AU community in our local startup ecosystem and region. AU members, city and startup leaders, media, and members of the startup community are all welcome to come and help us close out this eventful year! This year, all proceeds will go to Code The Dream to help local minorities and immigrants interested in tech find a pathway into the industry through coding education.

As an extra treat, this year we are launching the 1st Annual American Underground Awards, aka “The Undies.” Yes…we said the Undies. The Undies are a set of awards that highlight the amazing and creative hustle of AU’s companies and individuals. Nominations are made by AU members, and winners are selected by mentors from AU’s brand new Mentor Lounge program.

Categories include:

  • Brand Developer of the Year
  • Scrappiest Startup
  • Corporate Citizen of the Year
  • Growth Award
  • Fundraiser of the Year
  • Startup of the Year
  • CEO/Founder of the Year
  • Undergrounder of the Year

This is a night you won’t want to miss!
