Presents Boston Startup Challenge

CybersecurityIoTEdTechDigital HealthFinTech

We're convening the top entrepreneurs, investors and corporate executives from around Boston for an evening focused on the Industries of Tomorrow


The boost you need

The spirit and entrepreneurial mindset that has made Silicon Valley such a magical place has gone global. This is why we’re bringing our proprietary startup and corporate acceleration platform to innovation hot spots around the globe.

We will be selecting 2 Boston based companies from each vertical to pitch at the GSVlabs Boston Startup Challenge, November 16, 2017, in front of a panel of top VCs and an audience of transformative entrepreneurs, investors, and leading corporates. The winning startup in each vertical will have a chance to win $45k in non-dilutive funding, 6 months of free work space at GSVlabs Boston, and curated access to our network of investors and fortune 500s.

Boston is second only to Silicon Valley in startup activity and game-changing innovation. Home to some of our country’s top universities, groundbreaking research, and transformative venture capitalists. We want to connect the top startups emerging across the Boston region to the Global Silicon Valley.

Note: the verticals will include Cybersecurity, IoT, EdTech (special consideration will be given to those tackling problems in the special needs space), Digital Health and FinTech
