We thought we couldn’t be more excited for Startup Grind Global Conference in Silicon Valley in less than a week but then we woke up to find out that THE VIRTUAL GURUS have been selected as one of only 50 companies chosen by Startup Grind for the invite-only Accelerate Program!
It’s the Startup Grind’s way of expanding their impact on entrepreneurs and startups and we couldn’t feel more inspired to be included in this powerful and diverse group of businesses.
This is huge news for our start-up company that was already chosen for the Startup Grind in Silicon Valley, which is the world’s largest community of entrepreneurs, educating, inspiring and connecting each other across 130+ countries.
Being chosen as one of only 212 companies out of thousands that applied worldwide for the event was a milestone in itself but now to be chosen as just one of the top 50 to be featured in this promising program is truly the stuff dreams are made of!
As one of the chosen 50, we now have exhibition benefits including:
- Access to “Startup Day” — an exclusive, curated pre-conference event
- Proactive investor matches coordinated by Startup Grind
- An opportunity to pitch on the main stage
- Additional partner introductions and opportunities
- Nomination for “Startup of the Year” Award — both Grind and Growth winners will receive a selection of benefits focused on maximizing their global exposure
We know that the Startup Grind had to make some really TOUGH decisions, spending over 500 hours interviewing the thousands of outstanding startups that applied. Of the 212 startups that were selected to exhibit at the Global Conference, the Top 50 Grind and 10 Growth all showed high marks for potential across a combination of factors, such as founding team’s experience, product innovation, go-to-market approach and traction, amongst many others.
We want to congratulate the other chosen companies and thank the Startup Grind folks for this wonderful opportunity and the countdown is officially on!
