This week we at E3D News are attending The ASU-GSV Summit. One great part of the Summit is the GSV Cup, also known as the Global Silicon Valley Cup. It is a startup competition that is open to early-stage startups from around the world. GSV Ventures invests in edtech, enterprise, and frontier technology companies. The GSV Cup offers startups a chance to showcase their ideas and products to a panel of judges, which includes prominent investors and entrepreneurs. The competition is aimed at identifying and supporting promising startups that have the potential to become successful global companies.
The GSV Cup focuses on startups that are using technology to transform traditional industries such as education, healthcare, and finance. The competition provides startups with access to GSV’s extensive network of investors, entrepreneurs, and industry experts. This exposure can help startups secure funding, partnerships, and customers, as well as provide them with valuable feedback and insights into their business models.
Last year’s top three winners of the GSV Cup were Kibo, Collective Academy and Clayful
Winners of the GSV Cup receive a cash prize, as well as other benefits such as mentorship, office space, and access to GSV’s network. Some past winners of the GSV Cup have gone on to achieve great success, including Quizlet, a popular online learning platform, and Coursera, an online education platform that went public in 2021. The GSV Cup has quickly become one of the most prestigious startup competitions in the world, attracting thousands of applications from startups every year.
The Elite 200 Semifinalists For The 2023 GSV Cup Competition have already been announced. You can read more about them on the Elite 200 Look Book. On Tuesday, the second day of the conference, the top 20 startups will compete live for $1 Million for the ASU+GSV community and the top 3 will then be selected for the final pitch. Each of the three winners received a portion of the $1MM GSV Cup prize package, awarded in front of a live audience at the ASU GSV Summit’s Closing Ceremony on Wednesday, 4/19/2023.
GSV does a great job of educating early stage startups. If you are interested in the 2024 competition, attend the GSV Cup Startup Academy. It is a monthly virtual event series dedicated to providing the GSV Cup community with valuable insights around early-stage EdTech startups. Each month they invite industry leaders to share their wisdom and expertise on different topics relevant to the community within three key areas: growth, product, and people. Each session will be a 30-minute panel discussion followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
