Bring on the Global Startup Battle!
As a Startup Weekend Lusaka participant you will have the chance to join 20,000 entrepreneurs in 200 cities over 2 weekends for the Global Startup Battle (GSB) for innovation. GSB coincides with Global Entrepreneurship Week, when the world’s attention is on entrepreneurs and startup events.
What’s different this year?
This year all teams can participate in the Battle. Simply each team taking part will create a 60 second video entry and submit it to each Circle (this is a themed competition within GSB) that you want to compete in. Voting from the community starts on November 26th. The top 15 teams in each circle will move to the next stage where judges will select the top teams.
…and the Prizes?
There are definitely more prizes to be won, including: US$20, 000 in funding; flight to Google HQ for three team members; on-going mentorship, promotional support, prizes from other GSB Circle sponsors and press coverage; Google + hangout with an entrepreneur celebrity.
