If Mattermark Was Judging the Crunchies

The Crunchies took place tonight in San Francisco, awarding startups for achievement in several categories. We thought it would be fun to rank the companies based on their Mattermark Scores (scroll to the bottom read more about our scoring methodology).

We’ve placed a * next to the company that actually won in each category at the awards.
