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).
2020 Fast-track Opportunities
Startup Night SXSW | Established House
Annual Startup of the Year Fast-track Opportunities - hosted by Startup of the Year
The Established House will be held on March 14 at The Venue (516 E. 6th Street, 78701). Selected startups have the opportunity to pitch live to a panel of judges and battle it out for $10K in potential investment from Established Ventures and a fast-track spot to our fall Summit.
When founders apply to Startup of the Year, they can indicate if they'd like to be considered for SOTY SXSW. If they are invited by the Startup of the Year team to participate, they will receive an invitation email with all of the details about that specific event and competition.
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.
