in TNW12

Startup Rally

Faltam menos de três semanas para a 7ª edição da The Next Web Conference. A TNW 2012 é uma das maiores e mais importantes conferencias de tecnologia para empreendedores, gestores, investidores e startups.

Parte da conferencia de 3 dias é dedicada, com o apoio da Microsoft BizSpark, aos startups onde este ano 19 novos serviços vão ser apresentados e lançados perante uma audiência global, imprensa e investidores.

Das mais de 200 inscrições, 19 finalistas foram selecionados após um processo de seleção composto por três etapas.

“Dois dos maiores desafios que cada startup enfrenta são: em primeiro, atrair capital para conseguir que a empresa cresça e por segundo, aumentar a notoriedade perante os principais canais de media para os seus novos serviços” diz Patrick de Laive, cofundador do TNW. “O TNW Startup Rally fornece aos starups uma plataforma para superar ambos estes desafios”.

Esta competição está dividida em dois grupos – Alpha e Beta. O grupo Alpha consiste de novos serviços que se apresentam pela primeira vez, enquanto o grupo Beta consiste de serviços existentes que trazem novidades.

Um painel de experts, presidido pel CTO da Amazon, Werner Vogels, irá interrogar cada startup, classificando cada pitch para encontrar o finalista de 2012.
