BackType up for a 2008 Crunchie

As mentioned yesterday, the voting for the 2008 Crunchies has begun. I mentioned that Montreal’s Akoha is a finalist in the “Most Likely To Make The World A Better Place” category but failed to mention that BackType is up for the “Best Bootstrapped Startup”. This category honors companies that has raised less than $100,000 cumulatively from individuals, angels or others.

BackType co-founders Michael Montano and Christopher Golda hail from Toronto and are currently working out of Mountain View, CA thanks to funding by Y Combinator. Their list of users reads like the who’s who of Internet startups and venture capital, so these guys should have a shot at taking home the prize.

Voting for the 2008 Crunchies winners ends on January 5th – so get your vote in now.
