supernovalogo.pngThe submission process for for the Connected Innovators program at Supernova 2007 is now open. I co-sponsored this event with Kevin Werbach from Supernova last year, and we had an excellent batch of startups present to the audience.

Here’s how it works: Companies need to submit a brief application by April 27 that summarizes what makes their product groundbreaking and buzzworthy. The overall conference theme is Defining the New Network. Twelve companies will be selected to deliver on-stage presentations during a Supernova general session. I will be providing coverage of the presentations on TechCrunch. There is a participation fee for selected companies. Additional details on selection criteria, marketing benefits and program features are available here.

You’ll be familiar with last year’s Top 12 presenters: Attensa, Ether, Lifeio, Netvibes, PostApp, PROTOMOBL, Sharpcast, SoonR, StumbleUpon,, Webaroo an Zixxo.

The Connected Innovators showcase will be held June 21 at the Westin St. Francisco in San Francisco.
