Growing the global entrepreneurship network through competitions
YouNoodle has built a fast-track engine for entrepreneurs, where performance in competitions opens doors. Unlike other startup networks, all YouNoodle startups are evaluated by locally appointed expert judges, and only shortlisted for other opportunities if they do well. Founders get global validation, investors can focus on top talent, and corporations may find unexpected new business partners. Our job is to make the startup ecosystem focus on the right opportunities: startups with global potential.
Today, everything can be found in your pocket. Whether you want to know the weather or learn a new language, your mobile device serves as an essential tool for today. Founded by a passionate team of Chilean scientists, engineers, and students, Lab4U gives you a lab in your pocket.
A snapshot of the top 1,000 female entrepreneurs from YouNoodle-supported competitions
As YouNoodle reported in its study YN1K about its most passionate and talented startups, winning competitions is how startups live well and prosper. This has also proven to be true for the top 1,000 female-founded startups on YouNoodle. In its subsequent study, YouNoodle took an unprecedented look at women’s role in the global startup ecosystem. Called YN1Kwomen, it is an inside look at our top 1,000 female-founded startups, selected from over 24,267 entries across 224 YouNoodle-powered competitions that were judged from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014 by 2,942 judges. Among other exciting findings, YN1K illustrates that amongst female-funded startups, the average age is 29, women dominate specific industries, and those with a higher education have more startup success.
