According to Forbes competition exists in every field and believe it or not can be good for your business. So why are startups and developers taking part in competitions?

VISIBILITY          

When you are a startupper and you want to bring your innovative product to the market (possibly on a large scale), the visibility and the opportunities to showcase your solution in front of different audiences offered by Startup competitions are key for the success of your business development. You just have to identify the competition that fits your targets best.

PARTNERING OPPORTUNITIES

Let's  be honest, we know that when startups team up with corporates it's a win-win situation for many reasons, just think of the benefits for credibility, branding and distribution. Startup competitions are the perfect place to meet investors, large companies and funding institutions. You just need to find the competition that could connect you with the right partner for YOU, the one that could let you fly and give a boost to your product. 

MONEY AND PRIZES

Winning isn't everything, they say. And it's true that even if you don’t receive any of the big prizes, you can still benefit from the opportunity to challenge yourself and step outside of your comfort zone. But didn't you take part in that specific competition hoping to be awarded and go home with the winning prize? 

 

With that in mind, it would be great to find the very unique competition that gives you all of this and much more.
