BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA (May 30, 2012) – Bloomington-based tech company CheddarGetter will be ringing the closing bell today at the New York Stock Exchange. CheddarGetter, a recurring subscription management software tool, was among 10 finalists selected in a contest organized by NYSE Euronext to highlight young companies and entrepreneurs across the country.

The finalists were chosen from entries submitted by members of the Startup America Partnership and the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. CheddarGetter will join startups from California, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, and Florida in ringing the closing bell.

“We’d like to ring the opening bell to show that tech startups exist all over this country,” explained Adam Quirk, marketing director for CheddarGetter. “There’s a lot of awesome stuff going on here in the Midwest, from Chicago, to Omaha, to Kansas City, to here in Bloomington, Indiana,” he added. Adam, along with CEO Marc Guyer, will be the CheddarGetter representatives ringing the bell this afternoon.

CheddarGetter is a founding sprout of SproutBox, a startup incubator in Bloomington that provides capital and resources for budding tech companies in exchange for equity.

“CheddarGetter and the rest of the SproutBox family are a valuable part of our growing tech community,” said Katie Birge, project assistant at the Bloomington Technology Partnership. “We are excited for them to gain this kind of visibility and represent the local tech scene on a national stage,” she added.
