This one caught me: “Global Startup Battle”. Watch the cool YouTube Video.
What is Global Startup Battle
Global Startup Battle (GSB) is a global initiative where Organizers from hundreds of cities around the world simultaneously host Startup Weekend events during Global Entrepreneurship Week – the weekends of November 15th and 22nd, 2013. Post weekend, all teams will go on to compete against each other in a massive online video contest for amazing prizes designed to help their startup succeed.
We plan to have over 200 events with more than 20,000 entrepreneurs, mentors, coaches, special guests, celebrities, and more. Our GSB partners are making it possible for EVERY team to participate. That’s right, for the first time ever, every team will be eligible to compete in one of the themed brackets hosted by Coca Cola, AWS, .CO, and Google for Entrepreneurs. The top 2 teams from every city will battle in Google’s Championship Bracket, while all teams will be invited to compete in any or all of the other themed brackets they qualify for!
GSB is great way to plug into the vibrant worldwide UP network and we want to officially invite you and your community to join us!
Global Startup Battle in the Triangle?
We don’t know yet and are asking questions. The Triangle should have a chance (or chances) to participate. Stay tuned!
