From standing out on Kicktarter to vying for VC, startups have to work so hard to get noticed that you could call the whole tech industry a competition.
On November 20, NYC will host a literal startup competition — Challenge Cup 2015, wherein startups focused on solving some of the world’s biggest challenges in education, energy and health care will compete for prizes and meet with mentors, partners and investors.
The NYU School of Engineering is partnering with 1776, the startup incubator behind the event, to make the Big Apple one of 16 host cities of the second annual global competition.
