More than 1,400 votes were cast in the bracket-style competition based on which companies they would be most likely to invest in.
The public is encouraged to vote for YellowBird in the second round featured on the AZInno website until March 14. The competition started with a field of 16-companies with a goal to elevate Arizona’s startup ecosystem and encourage investment. Winning companies will move onto the next phase until the final winner is chosen on March 29.

YellowBird launched in 2019 with a sophisticated artificial intelligence platform and on-demand services that are a game changer in the EHS and tech industries for giving workers better control of when and where they work, while improving efficiencies to save time and money. Companies in insurance, construction, manufacturing, and oil/gas industries turn to YellowBird’s deep roster of certified, vetted, and insured professionals who can work at a moment’s notice on any size project.
