Startup Weekend Dallas is now a true global startup battle. The winning team from Dallas will go head-to-head against the winning teams from Beirut, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, New York, Portland, Seattle, Sofia, and Tulsa.
“On the weekends of November 12-14 and 19-21, hundreds of teams around the world will compete with one goal in mind: to dominate the competition, building a company from scratch in just a weekend. Participants converge as individuals on Friday evening, form teams around ideas, and build their products over the next 48 hours – culminating in pitching to a panel of expert judges on Sunday night.
What is Global Startup Battle?
Global Startup Battle is a global competition organized and supported by Startup Weekend, working in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week. The goal of the Battle is to create friendly competition among the attendees of Startup Weekend events and celebrate the awesomeness that is Global Entrepreneurship Week.
What makes Global Startup Battle a Global Competition?
All teams from the Startup Weekend events during Global Entrepreneurship Week (November 12-21) are invited (Dallas is one of these cities). Teams at Startup Weekend events will compete amongst themselves and a winner will be chosen at each event by a panel of judges. Once the local winner is decided, that team has 24 hours to create a 90-second video pitch and a 15-word description that explains what their startup is all about and why it rocks.
Once the videos are collected they will be posted on this site and we will open the floor for voting. Voting will be held on a global level and anyone who wants to vote can. (don’t forget to ask your friends and family to vote – didn’t Aunt Edna say she wanted to encourage your hobbies?)
The ultimate winner will be determined entirely by the open vote. The prizes up for grabs are pretty awesome – check out our Prizes page to learn more. In addition to the killer prizes, the winning team also gets bragging rights for an entire year, which sounds pretty sweet too.”
