|Description||Competitions for startups|
YouNoodle helps startup founders get advice, prizes, and opportunities from a global network of startup competitions.
YouNoodle is a San Francisco-based tech startup company, founded in 2010, by Rebeca Hwang and Torsten Kolind, backed by a group of business angels from the US, Europe and Asia.
The company was spun off an ambitious project started by Bob Goodson and Kirill Makharinsky in 2007 with support from Peter Thiel (Founders Fund) and Max Levchin (PayPal), which also spawned Quid (Goodson) and indirectly Ostrovok (Makharinsky).
YouNoodle matches entrepreneurs with competitions, accelerators, and startup programs, and provides a judging and voting SaaS platform to university, non-profit, government and enterprise clients organizing innovation challenges and competitions. Stanford’s BASES, UC Berkeley’s B-Plan, Start-Up Chile, Amazon Startup Challenge, and NASA are all running one or more competitions on YouNoodle’s platform.
