The TWiST International Meetup Cup

Does your city have what it takes to win the cup? This Week in Startups is holding a “World Cup-style” tournament of cities across the globe to determine which boasts the most startup talent. Two cities will be pitted against each other in a meetup on the show, with three companies from each city pitching to win the gold.

What You Need to Win

  • At least 10 killer companies who want to pitch to Jason on a live episode of This Week in Startups
    • Companies should have working demos/products available online
    • From a pool of 10+ companies, the organizer will hold a “pre-pitch event” to narrow the entrants down to the top 3
  • A space large enough to hold 50+ audience members to watch the live event
  • An HD webcam, quality mics and a wired Internet connection (further technical specifications required will be provided to interested parties)
