Our Startup Spotlight feature puts promising new companies center stage, with an in-depth look at who they are and what they do. Every other week, we’ll showcase what makes our featured company stand out from the competition.

There’s no cost to you. You simply need to explain to our editors why we should select your business.

To be eligible, there are a few ground rules:

  • Your business must be less than 3 years old.
  • You cannot have been featured on VentureBeat previously.
  • You must generate less than $1 million (U.S.) in annual revenue
  • And you must have an active site or product – not just a good idea.

You can apply to be considered for the Startup Spotlight here.
