It’s that time of the year again! As the world celebrates Global Entrepreneurship Week, we’ll be hosting the biggest battle in startups for the 6th straight year. Global Startup Battle returns November November 13-22 for a season of creating and competing!

Organizers around the world are busy getting their local communities ready with Startup Weekend events. We’re super excited to show the cities that are in for GSB so far.


NOTE: If you don’t see your city here it is because:

  • Your event is still too early in the planning stages to be ‘official’ just yet. If you’re an Organizer and don’t see your city, but have been in touch with one of our team and/or filled out the application, no need to worry. Continue working through the event planning process and we’ll update the list as yours is made official.
  • There’s no event in your city planned yet. If this is the case and you want GSB in your city, there are two options. Tell us you’re interested in organizing an event by filling out this application. Or, introduce us to someone in your city that would be a great Organizer! Simply send an intro email to gsb@techstars.com and we’ll take it from there!
