balloonsCongratulations to Santa Barbara Startup Weekend’s own Global Startup Battle Finalists!

Teams competing during our recent Santa Barbara Startup Weekend had the option of entering a global competition with teams from 250+ cities around the world. Three of our teams entered the initial competition, which was evaluated based on your votes and hand selected judges. Of our three competitors, two have moved on to the final round of judging.

  • Team LuxHelmet has entered the final round for the Kind Thing Track. Sponsored by Kind Snacks, this track recognizes socially impactful ideas, and team LuxHelmet certainly has an idea that can encourage bicycle use whole increasing safety.
  • Team Miyagi has entered the final round for the Education Track. Sponsored by General Assembly, this track is about empowering people to pursue the work they love by providing access to 21st century skills. Team Miyagi does that with its innovated tutoring platform.

Thank you to the community for providing so much support for these teams!
