About Startup Games


Startup Games unites high-growth startup companies in friendly competition to build great cultures while giving back to their local communities. We are developing an international network of startup communities competing in Olympic-style events, building company culture, and raising funds for local charities.

The Games

Local startup companies compete in brackets in a series of events during a single day of networking, fun and philanthropy. Each company plays for the charity of their choice, and every charity walks away with a grant for their organization. The largest portion of the funds raised go to the charities of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams.
