Get Ready for Global Startup Battle!

Add another event to your calendar for November!

Global Startup Battle is a Startup Weekend initiative, and “aims to generate a stronger global community of entrepreneurs through the largest startup competition in the world.”

During the weekend prior to and following Global Entrepreneurship Week, hundreds of Startup Weekend and other UP Global programs are hosted around the world. Winning teams from each event move forward to compete with one another via a global video competition.

Any Startup Weekend event held on November 14-16 or 21-23 (during GEW) is automatically part of the Global Startup Battle. This means that any team from any event can submit a video into one of the prize tracks for GSB, as long as they fit the criteria. Currently there are several tracks:

  • Champions
  • Education
  • Women
  • Innovators
  • Do the KIND Thing Track

Thankfully, we have an awesome community that supports the success of our local entrepreneurs.

Kyle Taylor is organizing a special event on November 19th at Mojo Media Labs in Las Colinas — it will act as a pre-event bootcamp for GSB to help people define their pitch for the upcoming weekend, both at Startup Weekend Dallas EDU and Startup Weekend Fort Worth.

“Startup Weekend is the best place to test entrepreneurship and experiment with your new ideas,” says Taylor. “On top of that, Global Startup Battle is a phenomenal opportunity to give all attendees a chance to win some amazing prizes that can accelerate their startup immensely. Because we’re so proud of our region, we will have volunteers available on Sunday night to shoot 1-minute spots for any team wanting to submit their team for GSB. This is definitely something you don’t want to miss out on.”
