Nominations Now Open for the 2012 Silicon Bayou 100

We’re excited to announce the nominations are now open for the 2012 Silicon Bayou 100, a list of 100 people who have done the coolest stuff in Louisiana entrepreneurship and tech and have most influenced Louisiana’s startup, entrepreneurial, tech, and digital communities this year. Last year was the first year this list was published, making round two even more exciting and crucial that everyone gets their votes in.

You are welcome to nominate as many people you can think of, including yourself, and be sure to include why you think the person being nominated has done something cool. You can do so by filling out this form. Last year, Molly described “done something cool” as:

  • Launched the next big startup
  • Created an innovative product
  • Displayed leadership skills in tech or entrepreneurship
  • Funded some awesome companies
  • Provided above and beyond advice and mentoring
  • Supported and contributed to Louisiana’s startup and tech community
  • Accomplished something amazing–in business or in life
  • Donated significant money or time to a worthy cause
  • Etc. — You be the judge
