• What do you mean by events?

    Startup of the Year is a 10-month program (Jan - Oct), where our worldwide community comes together multiple times to celebrate, recognize, and encourage entrepreneurship, inclusivity, and innovation.


    Throughout the year, there are a variety of events and online fast-track opportunities that allow SOTY applicants to win a fast-track spot to our fall Summit (more detail coming soon).

    Community Partner Events

    Tailored opportunities per Community Partner

    Our community partners are an important part of our global community, and as mentioned in our Community Partner section, we work with each group to customize a partnership that builds upon one another's startup ecosystems. This could range from cross-promotional marketing efforts to us providing a Startup of the Year fast-track spot to a group as a top prize for a community partner's small or large-sized pitch competition.


    *Check our our Community Partner section for more information and how to become involved.
