Startup Weekend Sheffield
November 20th, 2015


Startup Weekend Sheffield is one of over 250 Startup Weekend events taking place around the world during Global Entrepreneurship Week and what better way to celebrate than with a Global Startup Battle? I can’t think of one!

Prizes this year include:

  • All expenses paid conference trips
  • Startup resources and tools
  • Free workspace at top coworking spaces around the world
  • Mentorship from top tech companies
  • Founder trip to Seattle

More to be announced. Keep track of prizes.

Previous Sheffield successes for Global Startup Battle include: Goodvidio (final stage in the Innovation Track) and Airstoc (semi-final stage in the Champions’ Track). That was back in November 2013 and in the last 18 months, they’ve raised almost £1m between the two companies. Could that be you in a year’s time? Only one way to find out!
Register for Startup Weekend Sheffield

You can’t enter Global Startup Battle without first attending one of the GSB Startup Weekend events taking place in November (unless you participate in the all new Open Track — more details coming soon), but due to the many tracks available, you don’t even have to win to get involved. You can attend in whichever city you like… Sheffield will be the best of course. Only kidding. But not really.

So, check out some of the tracks you could enter and the criteria for entry:
Champions’ Track
Great in the Making
The Innovators
Disruptors and Big Ideas

More to follow. Keep track of the tracks.

You gotta be in it to win it! Get your Startup Weekend Sheffield ticket now!
