The goal of Spark.me Startup Competition is to bring together successful startups from all over Europe, help them grow, and share their ideas with the world. We go to great lengths to make sure the people on stage are someone who can help your business and team grow, but also to create many opportunities for meeting and mixing with the tech and business elite of the region.
We invite you to apply and join the ranks of previous Spark.me Startup Competition winners, such as dryTools (2016), COPRIXmedia (2015), FishingBooker (2014), and TruckTrack (2013), who all had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present and discuss their project with the “tech elite” – hundreds of TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco attendees, investors and media!
This year, we have two amazing opportunities for the best-ranked teams!
The grand prize for the winner of the Spark.me Startup Competition is the opportunity to exhibit in the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2017 Startup Alley. This includes:
- A return economy-class plane ticket to San Francisco (for 2 people),
- Accommodation for three days (for 2 people),
- Tickets for the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2017 conference (for 2 people),
- A Startup Alley booth at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2017.
The prize for the runner-up team is a 14-day-FREE stay for two entrepreneurs at Startup Embassy residence located in Palo Alto, Silicon Valley, courtesy of Spark.me sponsor – Startup Embassy.
Startup Embassy is the oldest entrepreneurial residence located in Palo Alto. They are a community of like-minded founders and provide collaboration, living, and workspace for international tech entrepreneurs that arrive at Silicon Valley. They only accept entrepreneurs working in their startups, so you get the benefit of sharing your time with like-minded individuals. Startup Embassy hosted entrepreneurs from over 50 countries and some of them have been accepted to Y Combinator, 500 Startups, and Singularity University.
