We just received a short note from the folks over at Beijing-based GWC reminding us that the deadline for their G-Startup event is just around the corner on April 8. For those who would like to apply, you can do so here.
What I find interesting about startup events in the Asia region is that even though Japanese startups are typically under-represented, they always seem do well, punching above their weight class so to speak. So if you are a Japan-based startup looking for an opportunity to show off your company outside the country, G-Startup is certainly an event worth exploring.
Check out the details below!
G-Startup Beijing Approaches Deadline on April 8th
Pitch your startup to a panel of serial entrepreneurs, angel investors, and VCs, while gaining massive exposure through international media! Every year, G-Startup pits top startups and app developers against each other for the chance to win investment, distribution, incubation and exposure. In 2012, G-Startup attracted applicants from 30 countries overall.
Participants can expect to gain significant exposure to new opportunities. Case in point, last year’s winner Beiz from Finland raised $1 million USD investment and increased their user-base by 1 million after the competition!
This year’s event includes two tracks: the Startup Competition, and appAttack. The Startup Competition pitches startups against each other for investment, while appAttack finds the “Most Innovative App” and provides distribution avenues for the winner. Applications are accepted until April 8th.
G-Startup is a one stop for all your global startup needs:
- Networking and connections
- Users and clients
Past competition partners have included: Innovation Works, ChinaAccelerator, PlugandPlay, InnoSpring and RocketSpace.
