- Ad-tech startup Qriously has been crowned the startup with the worst name by a poll conducted earlier this month by AdAge.
- Co-founder Chris Kahler admitted that the startup was proud of its win and, after learning it was leading the polls, even rallied to get more votes and pad the results.
- The Qriously name already had a reputation among the employees as being pretty bad — something that was intentional when Kahler couldn't afford a proper domain name and created it.
Kahler's attitude toward the contest is admirable. As he told AdAge, "It's better to be king of something." The co-founder is right, and the company's name should stick in the minds of a few more people following the exposure provided by the contest..
