Entries Invited for the 2017 Global Startup Open Competition

Startup Open is an international competition designed to identify, recognise and reward start-up companies and the entrepreneurs who are setting them up.

The competition is held as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) and recognises the best start-ups of the year, awarding prizes to help them grow their business.

One of GEW’s strengths is its network. By winning Startup Open, young start-ups have the opportunity to join the network and strengthen their own support network.

Startup Open will announce and recognise the most promising ventures from around the world, which will be selected by a range of criteria including strength of concept, growth projections, and knowledge of the market. Those companies will compete for a handful of prizes with the winners announced during Global Entrepreneurship Week, 13-19 November 2017.

The competition is open to any start-up from across the globe that has been founded in the last year.

Startup Open is now accepting applications for the 2017 competition. The deadline for submitting an application is 30 September 2017.
