As we kick off the new year we wanted to share some developments for the 2012 Innotribe Startup Challenge with you:
- $50,000 Cash Prize! Thanks to the sponsorship support of SWIFT, Cisco and Invest in Northern Ireland, we’ve established a $50,000 purse for the winners of the Challenge selected at Sibos in October.
- More exposure for NYC winners: The 2 winning companies (1 early-stage and 1 later-stage) selected at the NYC Challenge Showcase will be invited to present at The 2012 Future of Money & Technology Summit on April 23, 2012.
- New Judges! Here’s the initial list of amazing 2012 Innotribe Challenge Judges, including senior financial industry executives and investors.
To give you a chance to compete for 15 semi-finalist slots at the New York Showcase February 8, we’ve extended the deadline to apply to January 13, 2012.
Mike Gault, CEO of the 2011 winner, Singapore-based GuardTime, said: “The Innotribe Startup Challenge was fantastic experience for GuardTime. The program was incredibly well run, delivered great feedback and relationships, and we generated more than 50 leads.”
New York Applications are due by January 13, 2012 at http://www.innotribestartup.com.
