Two startup car related posts in one day - but more on that later…Startup Rally 2014

Last year we featured the Startup Rally, a literal drive around Europe over 19 days where a group of startup Founders accelerated around various European startup cities in an attempt to learn from each other, each startup city and also gain the opportunity to pitch for investment from a whole series of VCs and Angels.

And much like a wheel turns 360 degrees and a year turns 365 days, guess what? Startup Rally has come full circle and is back, and will be this year aiming to reach and visit 9 European cities with buzzing startup scenes - London, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Zurich and Paris.

The organisers, Leto, a London based Digital Innovation Agency, identified last year that whilst there are pockets of real entrepreneurial activity and enterprise, those ‘bubbles’ of innovation rarely get the chance to share, chat and learn from one another.

But slow down a minute - what are they looking for and how can you get involved?

  • This year’s event runs from the 10th - 29th September

  • Applications close in less than two weeks

  • You must be aged 18 years or over

  • Your company must be a high-tech startup or growth company in ICT field

  • Your company must be located in EuropeStartup Rally 2014

  • You must be able to arrange your own transport and accommodation (drive, fly, swim or walk - it’s up to you)! However as you’ve probably guessed, the preferred mode of transportation is your car!

  • You must be able to prepare a presentation and pitch in English

And that’s where we will park this post. If you are interested in finding out more about the Startup Rally, drive on over to the Startup Rally site for the all the details…

And if you wondered what the second startup car related post of the day is - check out our tongue in cheek post on Why your Startup team is like a car (*cringe*!)
