Entrepreneur of the Year

Focus.  Passion.  Determination.  

These are the kinds of traits that separate the good from the great--where the best rise to the top to change markets, and even change the face of a city.  

There are quite a few great candidates this year--an exit to Google from a couple of twentysomethings, a huge round raised by an otherwise bootstrapped and under the radar website builder, the check-in king, or the founders behind the addictive noon sales.  That's not all--and we want to hear who you think deserves a nod.  Nominate your choices for entrepreneur of the year below.
