Q:
I did GSB last year, what's new for 2016?
A:
Global Startup Battle is now Global Startup Weekend! During Global Startup Weekend 2016, the Startup Weekend community will come together to hold hundreds of events simultaneously over 2 weeks. To highlight these entrepreneurs and their communities, local winners will be featured globally to help them gain exposure and build momentum with their startup.

The major change between GSB and GSW is that we're removing the competition side of these two weekends, making sure that we continue providing the value for Community Leaders and participants through high quality resources and content, which will be exclusive during these two weeks.

By participating in Global Startup Weekend, you have the ability to connect with thousands of entrepreneurs around the world, and the chance to be featured on a global level.
