Mektory Startup Competition 2015
The 7th TUT Mektory Startup Competition will be held in December 2016
Before the Startup Competition - join our startup pre-incubation program "How to Start Up 2016!"
Mektory Startup competition is an entrepreneurship competition aimed at students who are interested in creating their own startups. Students from all over the world are welcome to participate. Mektory has run a competition about startup business models since 2011, this year it takes place for the seventh time.
The main goal of Mektory Startup Competition is to give participants first experience of starting a startup, and helping them move forward with their idea to bigger challenges. To help students start up, we have created TTU Startup pre-incubation program, where seasoned startup founders and key workers, investors and helping organisations share their experiences and all teams have the opportunity to find a mentor.
We also help alumni of Mektory Startup Competition to move forward to other programs such as Prototron, Ajujaht, Founder.org, Rice Business Plan Competition and others. We support in applying to Tehnopol and Tallinn incubators, Startup Wise Guys and BuildIt accelerators and others.
Over 700 students with over 150 teams have participated in the past five competitions. Successful alumni of Mektory competition have shown great results in other programs, have been accepted to incubators and accelerators in Estonia and abroad, have created over 60 jobs and also raised investments.
