UPDATE: For the newest list of cities, check our new blog post here, we’ll keep it updated as more cities finalize plans. Go!

Here it is: The first batch of Startup Weekends listed for this year’s Global Startup Battle! If you don’t see your city here, don’t fear, applications are still open to Organize or you can help us find a great Organizer to bring GSB to your city. If you know someone you think should Organize, send an email to gsb@startupweekend.org with their name and email and we will reach out to get them with the right information.

If your city is already on the list, let us know you’re going by tweeting #GSB2013 and the name of your city! (Official hashtags coming soon and just maybe the biggest hashtag battle ever waged). Click to tweet!

    Wahhhhh. If you don’t see your city, stop complaining and volunteer to organise one yourself or fly to your nearest city. Simple. We’re entrepreneurs/ wantrepreneurs FFS.

  • Hey guys, if you don’t see your city on the list, it may be that the event is still marked at Tentative, we’ll publish a new list as soon as new cities are finalized and added. If you want to make sure there is an event happening, shoot an email to gsb@startupweekend.org and we can check. If one isn’t going, we’d love to have you Organize! There is still plenty of time to get your city on the map!!
