For folks new to Startup Weekend, this is 54 hour event for taking an a project from idea to launch. It’s now a global movement that inspires and educates entrepreneurs. Our mission is to build a healthier startup community around the word. “No Talk, All Action”

Startup Weekend has been hosted in Tokyo since 2009 and in the Summer of 2011, with the help of some wonderful people, we launched our Kyoto and Fukuoka chapter. To celebrate the launch of the new cities and to create a little friendly rivalry, we held a special competition “Startup Weekend Matsuri Taikai”. Following the great success of the Global Startup Battle held last year during the Global Entrepreneur Week, the winner of each cities create a 90 commercial the best idea of the competing cities will be selected as a winner.

For the 1st week of September, you the reader can vote for the best idea for the Matsuri Taikai. The winner will take away with them 1 million Japanese yen, ~ $10,000 that we hope will help seed the early stages of their new startup.

Without further ado, the winners of each city:

Kyoto – Kasa Sute

Tokyo – Cooking DJ

Fukuoka – OOOI
