Seattle 2.0 Startup Award finalists announced

Seattle 2.0 announced the finalists of their upcoming Seattle 2.0 Awards today and the list is literally the who's who of the local startup community.
After the public nominations, we went through a painful process of reviewing all the 2,000 nominees and then presenting all the candidates to the panel of 30 people, including CEOs, Angel Investors, VCs, Service Providers and bloggers from Seattle. The panel did a phenomenal job in such short period of time and the finalists have emerged.
