US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association

We’re excited to invite you and members of your organization to the first USVI Start-Up Battle!


Join us on Thursday, October 27th, 6 – 9 PM at Prime at Paradise Point, as five of the Virgin Islands’ top start-ups present their business ideas (shark tank style) for a chance to win $100,000 in investment. RSVP


Startup Battle is a competition for aspiring entrepreneurs with dreams of launching a tech-based business and for early-stage tech startups seeking to accelerate growth.


Throughout the competition, top participants develop their ideas with seasoned mentors and present to active venture capitalists from all over the United States. Because VI Crawl, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that uses media & events to promote cultural education, address social issues, and bolster the Creative Economy of the Virgin Islands, we had to partner with Startup Battle to coordinate this epic event on St. Thomas.
