Good news for European entrepreneurs: Startupbootcamp and Startup Weekend today announced a strong partnership for 2011. Alex Farcet, co-founder and Managing Director of Startupbootcamp, has already organized Startup Weekend events in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Lithuania in the recent past.
Startupbootcamp will now sponsor Startup Weekend with €10K, which Startup Weekend will allocate evenly to ten events in Europe before the end of 2011. Half of the €1K sponsorship per event will go directly to the local organization to use as they see fit. The other half will be pooled with Startup Weekend resources to beef up the European organization.
Furthermore, Startupbootcamp is planning to put on a European gathering in Berlin of the best Startup Weekend teams, and local organizers, in September. The format will probably be something like a pitch competition.
