"GEW 50" Now Vie for Trip to Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Liverpool and One-Year Mentoring Program with Redbox Founders
In the search to find tomorrow's job creators, Startup Open, a competition that searches for startups with the greatest growth potential, unveiled the "GEW 50." The GEW 50 is a list of the world's 50 most innovative new companies. These elite startups will now vie for a host of prizes to be announced on Nov. 14, timed with the kick-off to Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2011. GEW is a global celebration of innovative and enterprising activity that was founded by the Kauffman Foundation.
Hundreds of applications from more than 60 countries were judged on concept, growth projections and knowledge of their industry.
"These 50 companies represent the best and brightest of today's entrepreneurs--and they hold the key to spurring economic revival and sustained growth," said Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation. "We hope that recognizing these promising startups will inspire other aspiring entrepreneurs to take chances and start new ventures."
