Congratulations, Crunchies Winners! Kickstarter Wins Best Overall Startup

It was a night for the ages. At the 7th Annual Crunchies Award show, Kickstarter beat out CloudFlare, Snapchat, Twitter and Uber, and walked away with the Crunchie for Best Overall Startup. Chris Sacca won the Crunchie For Angel Of The Year, Dropbox's Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi won Founder of the Year, and Tinder took home Best New Startup. At the start of the show, John Oliver proclaimed, partly in jest, there are no losers at the Crunchies. "All the companies nominated are not losers," Oliver states as only he can, "there are only companies that just failed to win." We're proud of all the nominees and applaud all the crazy innovations that startups and founders are constantly developing.
