Think you have the next big idea and just need a little bit of help getting started? Then How To Web is challenging you to a Startup Challenge for East European fame. Any startup from anywhere in the world can enter the competition and prove to us that their idea is the one that will rock the web in 2011.
As of today, startups from all over the world can submit their start-up information and elevator pitch to our Startup Challenge competition. In order to enter the competition startups should have less than 2 years of activity, target a global or international market and shouldn’t have raised any VC funding until the present moment. Our professional jury will decide which 6 of the startups will be finalists of the competition. The 6 finalists will have the chance to present their pitch at the How To Web 2010 Conference and will receive:
- one free conference ticket and 50% discount for the second ticket (125 EUR, including VAT);
- a 5 minute presentation of their new product or service for free to the 500 Internet professionals who are attending the How To Web 2010 conference on the main stage;
- a dedicated space, situated in the Startup Challenge Area, where they can present his product or service to all attendees;
- individual mentoring discussions with all the members of the jury, for getting feedback and improving their product or service.
At the end of the two conference days, 3 of the 6 Startup Challenge finalists will be awarded based on the jury’s and attendees’ evaluation. The winners will be promoted via How to Web’s official social media channels and get a great pack of rewards (soon to be announced).
More details regarding the competition you can find here on the Startup Challenge official page.
The deadline for registration is 10th of October 2010. So hurry up! Don’t hesitate to notify all startups you think deserve the opportunity to pitch on-stage at How To Web 2010 and the attention that comes with it.
