Company Recognized for Achieving Significant Milestones & Being a Disruptive Innovator in Vending and Unattended Retail
Gimme, maker of innovative unattended retail technology that provides executives with sales, cash, inventory and service data, took home the title of 2018 Best B2B Startup in Atlanta during the second annual Atlanta Startup Awards last week. The award ceremony aims to recognize Atlanta’s most successful rising tech companies, startup pioneers and disruptive innovators, and is jointly comprised by organizations that work within the startup community.
Gimme builds award-winning mobility and tracking tools to manage unmanned retail locations and was recognized as the Best B2B Startup for achieving significant milestones over the last 12 months, edging out numerous strong competitors. The finalists were judged based on criteria including milestones within the product development process, growth and overall community impact or job creation potential.
“Receiving the award for Best B2B Startup in Atlanta really speaks to the hard work, determination and ground-breaking technology our team has developed,” said Evan Jarecki, Co-Founder and Chief Customer Officer for Gimme. “This competition brings together the most innovative Atlanta startups and being named a winner is an incredible honor. We are on a mission to change unattended retail technology, and we appreciate all who voted for us for this award and who have supported us along the way.”
Winners were determined by a combination of a judging panel and open public voting. Open nominations were accepted for each awards category, which were then narrowed down to 3-5 finalists before the final decision. The judges were comprised of members of the Startup Atlanta Board of Directors, a group of individuals from the private, public and non-profit sectors involved in the startup community.
“The Atlanta Startup Awards recognize the best and brightest of Atlanta’s local startup ecosystem,” said Adam Harrell, Startup Atlanta Executive Board President. “Over 7,000 people cast their vote during the public voting phase and an expert panel of judges scored each finalist’s entry. Each company recognized truly deserves to be seen as a top local Startup.”
