The Grandmothers’ Choice

This prize is a staple in the Startupfest tent village. Our Grandmother judges have an incredible track record, selecting companies that have gone on to raise remarkable series A rounds, and/or be acquired within 6 months of winning this prize. In 2011, web-based analytics company Onavo won this title with little traction to their name, within 6 months they’d been acquired by Facebook for $150 million. 

The process: By applying for any prize, you’re automatically entered to be reviewed by the Grandmother Judges!

Included in this? $1000 cash, AND a ton of in-kind services.
