The organizing team of Spark.me, one of the most carefully curated business/Internet conferences in Southeast Europe, which is set for May 25-26, in Porto Montenegro Auditorium, in Tivat, Montenegro, has published a call for Spark.me 2019 Startup Competition. The winning team will have a unique opportunity to present its startup to leading investors and media at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2019 Startup Alley.
The mission of Spark.me Startup Competition is to bring together successful startups from all over Europe, help them grow, and share their ideas with the world. Previous winners of Spark.me Startup Competition are Top Digital Agency (2018), Couch Coach (2017), dryTools (2016), COPRIX media (2015), FishingBooker (2014), and TruckTrack (2013). All startups founded after September 1, 2017, and that have received less than $2.5 million in funding, are eligible to apply, regardless of where they are registered.
In order to participate, all interested teams need to fill out the application form at http://spark.me/startups/, after which they will go through the pre-selection round. Application deadline is April 15, 2019, 23:59:59 UTC. Ten startup teams that pass the pre-selection round will be announced on April 22 on the official conference website, and will get the opportunity to present at the Spark.me 2019 conference on May 25-26.
The winning team will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present and discuss its idea with the “tech elite” on October 2-4, 2019 in San Francisco – it will receive two round-trip tickets to San Francisco, hotel accommodation for three days (for two people), two tickets for the three-day TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco 2019 conference, and their own Startup Alley booth. With over 10,000 attendees and 400+ media outlets, Disrupt SF is the place to find new customers, get media attention, and meet future investors. Startup Alley is the heart of Disrupt SF where over 1,200 pre-series A startups and sponsors across all verticals will be showcasing their latest tech products, platforms, and services.
