New feature: Startup Tuesdays!

It's always good to get feedback from a community of smart, passionate people who care about tech in our region. You guys generated this idea:

Every week, I'll do a short profile of a start-up company you've probably never heard of before. The geographic parameters? From Philadelphia to Virginia.

Other requirements: The startup must be less than 3 years old; have less than 20 employees; and be connected to technology, software, cybersecurity, hardware, mobile, Web (design) development industries.

So, here's the information I'll be seeking -- in a total of 400 words or less. (Brevity is key, folks) I encourage start-up company leaders to submit the following information, along with a photograph of your key principals and an optional 1-minute-long "pitch" video, via YouTube, which I will include with the online article.

Here's the format:

* Company name

* Founder(s) name

* Number of employees

* Location(s)/Headquarters

* Field/Industry

* Product(s) and what it does 

* Website/Twitter/Blog links

* The genesis of the idea for your company

* Most important local/regional resource you tapped to start your company


So, companies can send me all this information to this email address:

I will pull it all together every week and publish one or two on Tuesdays. We're gonna call it: Start-up Tuesdays! Yeahhhh!!!! W00t!
