Monthly Seattle startup ranking released; is it becoming a shopping list?

Marcelo Calbucci released his June index of Seattle tech startups, including two that made other news today.

In 25th place is Imagekind, the Pioneer Square online art vendor sold today to CafePress, two years after it was founded.

Bellevue notification service Alerts.com was at 94th place but posted one of the fastest monthly gains, moving up 58 spots in the index.

Today Alerts.com announced that it received $1.2 million in funding led by Bellevue’s Monster Venture Partners. It’s going to use the money to “augment the growing array of alerts it offers, as well as develop additional distribution channels to reach consumers in new ways,” the release said.

Maybe we should keep an eye on the list’s other big gainers: Eyealike, up 77 spots; BrandVerity, up 64; and Ameritocracy, up 56.

Here’s the top 25:
