Prize Categories for #SWG13


We are working on some sweet prizes for the startups, and have nailed down the prize categories which the groups will be judged on. At Startup Weekend, you’re all winners. Except for the startups who win one of the following prize categories. They’re definitely winners:

  • Best positive environmental impact
    An overall choice for saving the green planet.
  • Best positive local environmental impact
    Impact for Glasgow specifically.
  • Most likely to change behavior for an environmental good
    Teach a man to fish kind of stuff.
  • Most commercially sustainable
    Is your idea going to get investment and survive in the market?
  • Most technically innovative
    Impressive ideas.
  • Best low carbon innovation
    A footprint-reducing idea.
  • Most learning demonstrated (ie. by the team over the weekend)
    We’re hoping delegates who come along get a lot out of the experience!
  • Community choice (voted for by the delegates via Twitter)
    Potentially the most feel-good prize to win.
  • Best overall
    And the Academy Award goes to…

Judging and awards will take place at the Lighthouse on Sunday.
