WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE BEST ENTREPRENEURS ALL OVER THE WORLD

Yes! We’re looking for you! We’re looking for a startup founder that NEEDS to come to Silicon Valley. They think you’re crazy, but you know you’re a dreamer. They call you weirdo, but you’ve learned to embrace who you are, because you know that what makes us weird are the things we are passionate about.
You’re a doer, a creative mind; you hate wasting time and have made huge sacrifices to achieve your goals and you regret none of it. When you were a kid, you earned more at your lemonade stand over summer break than your parents made all year. And right now and after so many years you’re finally on the clear path to success!

WHAT DO WE OFFER?

Well, we WANT to meet you! In fact, we are so eager to meet entrepreneurs like you, that we’ve gone completely MAD and are giving you 14 days for free at Startup Embassy! But wait, we hear you say, “I live in the ass of the world and the plane ticket is so expensive that I could eat two years’ worth of ramen with that!” Fear not, our soon to be ambassaling, didn’t we say we wanted to meet you? WE WILL FUCKING PAY FOR YOUR TICKET!

ENTER THE COMPETITION!

WHY?

Really?” you say. “What’s the catch? I’m not giving away my equity!
We couldn’t care less about your startup, you little asshole. Well, we do, but we care a lot more about you! We’ve been helping entrepreneurs like you soft land to Silicon Valley since 2012 and have always felt that we could do more, so much more… so we’ve decided to stop thinking and start doing.
There’s no catch, we don’t want anything, we just want to help you to come to Silicon Valley. Period.

WHO ARE WE?

Startup Embassy is the oldest entrepreneurial residence located in Palo Alto. We provide a soft landing for international tech entrepreneurs that arrive to Silicon Valley. We are a community of entrepreneurs who collaborate, live and work under the same roof.

We only accept founders working in their startups, so you get the benefit of sharing your time with like-minded individuals. In four years we’ve hosted entrepreneurs from over 50 countries and some of them have been accepted in YC, 500 Startups and were funded by top VCs in the valley.

Oh! And Entrepreneur.com has named us in the top 10 startup communities in Silicon Valley. Bullshit. We say we’re number 1!

And yes, we know. We got this description from our homepage. You smart little bastard!

HOW TO ENTER

Easy. Just take some time and apply HERE. We said to take your time, competition is high! Prove to us you’re the one. Make us proud of what you’ve accomplished. Tell us why you deserve this prize. Be creative, be original, be yourself. But for fucks sake, tell the truth, we don’t want delusional wantrepreneurs! If that’s you, the delusional type, no worries, we all once were like you. Get your ass out of your comfort zone, fight, prove your worthiness and get back to us when you’re ready. And stop bullshitting, it does you no good.

Share

Share your video with your friends. The 50 videos with more Likes by the 31st of January 2017 will be the FINALISTS

The winner will be selected out of the 50 videos with more likes by a panel of judges and will be notified on Feb 15th, so if you are late submitting your video, you have time to get enough likes. Out of these 50 videos our judges will select the entrepreneur that we believe would benefit the most from his trip, based on the video and on his answers to the questionnaire.

Setting expectations

One word of caution though. We’re not an accelerator neither an incubator. We won’t give you money for your startup. We won’t introduce VCs to you. We won’t hold your hand and walk you through Silicon Valley. We’re not your fucking mother and won’t teach you how to cook (mama Carlos might. He hates seeing people unable to fry a damn egg). We’re just giving you the opportunity to come to Silicon Valley and live the Startup Embassy’s experience. No more, no less. What you do and how you do it is up to you. And you better take the most out of it to make us proud. If this scared you to death, you’re not the one.
