About Us

Powered by CrunchbaseFounded in 2017, The Tech Tribune delivers the latest technology news, in-depth technology articles, exclusive interviews with entrepreneurs, and insights on the hottest technology startups all over the world.

In partnership with Crunchbase, our flagship journalistic endeavor is the Best Tech Startups series that we publish for every major city and state in the US, and for the US as a whole, every year. Our mission is to recognize and honor the most exemplary young companies all across the country, companies that too often do not get a well deserved turn in the spotlight.

We are constantly refining our methodology, but our current one can be found below:

In doing our research, we consider several factors including but not limited to:

  1. Revenue potential
  2. Leadership team
  3. Brand/product traction
  4. Competitive landscape

Additionally, all companies must be independent (unacquired), privately owned, at most 10 years old, and have received at least one round of funding in order to qualify.

Badges to commemorate the accomplishments of the firms we honor can be found here for the current year, and here for past years.

We make every effort to consider every startup in every city, but if you feel yours has been overlooked, please contact us here.

Additionally, our exclusive interview series called Profile of a Founder dives deep into the minds of the folks who made the startups we’ve honored possible. We explore the trials and tribulations of starting a company, with attention paid to the regional elements that make each situation unique. They are a must read for any young entrepreneur looking to join the immortal ranks.
