43North Finals Prove Startup Contests are Not Just for Hackathons
Hackathons, competitions, and contests are all great ways to find the next start up company. With the help of 43North, 11 teams are getting the opportunity to make their startup a reality. But unlike the short time period of a hackathon, 43North has given each team a year to build on their plans. In October of 2014, 43North chose the finalists after pitching their ideas. Now after a year of work, they have the opportunity to win $1 million. One final judging round On October 29th, the 11 finalists will come back to Shea’s Performing Arts Center and present their ideas in front of prestigious judges. The only difference is – this time they will be walking away with more money than before. The event will be a quick paced competition full of innovative ideas shared with like-minded teams. The judges will determine who receives $250,000, $500,000, and the winning prize of $1 million.
