There are a lot of startup contests that give away money or Amazon Web Services Credits, or other things that your startup may need, but the most valuable contests are when the prize is time, and connections. That’s what luxury travel startup Suiteness is doing with their Suiteness startup contest.

Suiteness, a Y-Combinator graduate, is paying their startup experience forward by giving one lucky startup the chance to come to Silicon Valley, meet with real Silicon Valley VCs and stay in a luxury suite at the world famous Hotel Zeppelin.

On the trip to San Francisco you and your team will meet with:

·         Eric Weisen, General Partner at Bullpen Capital

·         Ludwig Ensthaler, Partner at Global Founders Capital

·         Eric Scott, Partner at SciFi VC

·         Boris Silver, Co-Founder and President at FundersClub.

To enter Suiteness Startup Suite, participating startups must submit a one minute video describing why their team needs to come together in San Francisco – whether it be to pitch Silicon Valley-based VCs, attend a conference or simply escape for a much-needed company offsite. All entries will then be shared with the public for community voting, during which period, startups are encouraged to promote and share their entries to receive votes. The selected winner will be announced on Friday, October 20th, 2017.

“Suiteness understands the struggles of growing and scaling a new business,” says Suiteness CEO Robbie Bhathal. “It is an exciting experience, but it’s also a stressful one. We believe that connectivity is crucial for young companies to exchange ideas and jumpstart new innovation. Our goal is to bring teams together so that they can succeed at their entrepreneurial goals while also getting a much needed stress reliever.”
