Sparxup is known for its startup competition, we have produced 47 startup finalists for the last 2 years of Sparxup. Winning Sparxup also increase the chance for your startup to get funded by investors, as well as media publications from (but not limited to) our media partners.
“… a defining moment in the history of Gantibaju.comTruly a priceless experience” Aria Rajasa, founder Gantibaju.com (Sparxup 2010 1st winner)

What’s different this year?
We’re trying to increase our bar for startups even more. This year, we will give no room for PPT Slides and presentations. Sparxup 2012 is about products, so startups will DEMO their product on the Demo Day in front of judges, investors and selected audience in a private environment.
Juries will filter and pick 24 startups from each category to proceed to Demo Day where each startup will have 5 minutes to demo their product at the Demo Day. But each startup representative will also have a chance for a one sentence pitch on stage during the awarding night right before we announce the 1st and 2nd winner.
