Prizes

This Startup Weekend is a very special one as teams will have a chance to not only compete for the local prizes, but also  for the Global Startup Battle prizes.

More information on Local Prizes coming soon.

 

Here is a taste of some of the Global prizes GSB teams can win!

To allow for more teams to win, Startup Weekend has a new addition to the Global Startup Battle called Circles – a themed battle within Global Startup Battle.

Based on different ways to qualify, you can enter one or more of the circles our GSB partners are hosting. This means more ways to win and more prizes. In addition, ALL teams will qualify for one or more of the themed Circles hosted by the other GSB partners, even if they didn’t win their local event. That means, for the first time ever, every single Startup Weekend team formed during GSB will have a chance at startup glory!

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll introduce all the Circles, the partners behind them, the prizes for each, and how you can take part, but today, we’d like to start by unveiling The Champion’s Circle powered by Google for Entrepreneurs!

The Champion’s Circle is the new home of the winner-take all video contest from last year and with Google powering prizes, the top 2 teams from each city will be invited to compete, not just the first place winner. With about 200 cities joining the fray, around 400 teams will be eligible to win the Grand Prize.

 

These prizes are just a start, there are plenty more ways to win and more prizes that we’ll reveal from now up until GSB kicks off!
