Vote for Cambridge four in Global Startup Battle

Four new entrepreneur teams from the latest Accelerate Cambridge start-up weekend need your help as they compete in the biggest competition for new ventures – the Global Startup Battle

Vote for Cambridge fourThe conquerors last year were Accelerate start-up Stat.io and this year four more fledgling Cambridge teams are hoping to make it to the top. The Water Peer, MyBox, Gift Gaming and BrightSlide teams who emerged from the 23-24 November Accelerate weekend need votes, and lots of them, to get closer to the Global Startup crown.

The Global Startup Battle draws in 20,000 participants from start-up weekends held in 200 cities across the world – all competing for a share of the $500k funding up for grabs. This is the 4th annual contest set up by the Kauffman Foundation, which promotes educational achievement and entrepreneurial success.

Last year’s Global Startup Battle winner was Accelerate Cambridge startup Stat.io. They went on to win a trip to Silicon Valley to present their idea. Stat.io has since won some funding from Accelerate Cambridge and continues to develop its concept – the world’s first search engine for socio-economic data.
