Our friends at Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW - http://www.unleashingideas.org) are launching Startup Open (http://startupopen.com/):
- Startup Open is a competition for startups created during GEW
- Founders expecting to have a startup moment during GEW may enter at startupopen.com from October 1 to October 31, 2010 (startup moment = business incorporated, doors open for business, first sale completed, outside funding secured, final milestone achieved in product development or anything else that can be interpreted as the company is “open for business”)
- The 50 most promising startups will be recognized during GEW, and one entrepreneur will receive a free trip to Richard Branson’s private island to network with experienced entrepreneurs
- Entrepreneurs who participate will gain extra publicity and media awareness for their startup and have the chance to network with other entrepeneurs.
