BETA's Tournament of Champions

Since 2014, the Twin Cities Metro Area has been introduced to 138 Minnesota-based startups via the BETA Showcase. Since Showcasing, countless teams have added headcount, raised cash, launched new products, and much much more. This Tournament is an opportunity to check in on some of the most exciting startups, learn about their growth and celebrate the milestones they’ve achieved since we first met them. It’s also a friendly competition where 8 companies (from past Showcase cohorts) will compete for a total prize package worth over $50,000 in goods and services (currently $54k and climbing!).

The Tournament consists of 2 knock-out rounds, plus a live, Grand Finale, where we’ll announce the winner, from the remaining teams. The startups with the least amount of votes will be knocked out at the end of each round. The Tournament of Champions runs August 7th through early September.

There are no judges, here... the winner of the Tournament of Champions will be selected by the general public (YOU!).
