There is no harder working team than LockerDome.

LockerDome, the booming social media platform for sports used by more than 2.5 million people per month, was honored with two awards at this year’s Startup Connection: the People’s Choice Award and the Cultivation Capital Award. The event took place on October 25th at the St. Louis Science Center and featured 45 of the top startups in the Midwest. These awards come just weeks after LockerDome was recognized with a St. Louis Business of the Year Award.

“We’d like to thank the St. Louis entrepreneurial community for its continued, strong support of LockerDome,” remarked Gabe Lozano, co-founder and CEO of LockerDome. “The energy at the event was amazing and something we are thrilled to have been a part of.”

The People’s Choice Award in the Growth Category was voted on by the more than 600 entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, and other startup enthusiasts who attended the jam-packed event. The Cultivation Capital Award was presented by Cultivation Capital, a St. Louis-based venture capital firm, as recognition of LockerDome’s strong team and explosive traction.

"There is no harder working team than LockerDome,” stated Cliff Holekamp, a General Partner at Cultivation Capital. “The Cultivation Capital Award provided us a wonderful opportunity to recognize LockerDome's hard work and to celebrate their milestone of exceeding two million monthly unique visitors."

LockerDome’s 2012 torrid growth spurt continues, a year in which it has been one of the fastest growing sports-specific websites in the world. In early October, LockerDome surpassed two million monthly unique visitors, a milestone the company achieved in just nine months since re-launching the platform in January 2012. Just weeks later, LockerDome has since surpassed 2.5 million monthly unique visitors.
