Enter Your Office Dog In Wistia’s #StartPup Competition Now!

Startups are, generally, more humane workplaces than most traditional companies and a big part of that is because employees work in an environment that is more people-oriented than production-oriented. Which, by the way, often leads to people ending up more productive.

For many startups around the world, being humane also means having pets spend time at the office, making the workplace even more enjoyable.

One such startup is Wistia, a company that specializes in video marketing. Their pooch-in-residence is called Lenny and he inspired them to start a competition called #StartPup.

This is Lenny.

The idea is that startups from around the world send in their nominees for the ultimate office pooch with an accompanying video. The expert panel of judges will judge the entries and the winning pup will bring a bunch of prizes back to its office.

The prizes for the winner include a free 500 Video Plan from Wistia, for life; a $500 donation to a local Humane Society branch; a GoPro cameratogether with a dog mount, a Frisbee and a Wistia dog bandana. There are also local prizes to be had.

Wistia organized the #StartPup competition together with Humane Society International, looking to raise awareness of the importance of a more relaxed workplace.
