Global Startup Battle
An initiative created by Startup Weekend, Global Startup Battle 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 events are hosted around the world and winning teams from each event move forward to compete with one another via a global video competition. Teams then form a pitch video and enter into the Circle battles they qualify for. Global votes determine the top 15 teams in each Circle and finally, a panel of judges decides which team is the overall winner. In 2012, over 130 cities participated in Global Startup Battle, and GSB 2013 is expected to be even larger. Global Startup Battle enriches the global entrepreneurial community by creating a sense of inclusion between startup teams around the world.
