ET SpotlightThere has been a huge influx of innovative ideas and disruptive tech solutions from the startup space in recent years. While some of these startups bloom successfully and attain the coveted status of a unicorn, startups with a $1 billion valuation or more, others slump and get lost in the crowd. For the vast majority, the journey to growing from the nascent startup-idea stage to becoming a unicorn is full of challenges, but not impossible. And the 1,100+ unicorns across the globe are a testament to that fact.
Now what if we told you, you have a chance to identify a billion-dollar startup idea on the iconic ‘Meet the Drapers’ startup reality show and play a part in accelerating that startup’s growth journey with a simple click of a button? Better still, what if it’s an Indian startup participating in this global startup pitching competition and you could help them create history by winning? Sounds unreal? Well, you now have that chance to vote for a startup that you believe offers the most promising global startup idea and help it reach the finale of the 5th Season of the ‘Meet the Drapers’ startup reality show.
Cast your vote now and help your favourite startup win a direct entry to the finale
In its hunt to find and fund the next global startup idea, Meet the Drapers: Season 5 has gone global. Entrepreneurs from Portugal, India, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada, and the USA are battling it out in the currently ongoing 5th edition of the show to receive the ultimate prize of a $1 million investment amount from Tim Draper.
However, as viewers, you no longer have to root from the sidelines, because you now have a unique opportunity to help fast-track your favourite startup’s journey to the finale by voting for them. You can either vote for a startup from your own home region, or for the one you believe has the most groundbreaking ideas. The top three companies with the maximum number of viewer votes will automatically make it to the show’s finale.
The winners of the current season of ‘Meet the Drapers’ will get a $1 million investment from Tim Draper and will be able to tap into his deep network whereas the 2nd and 3rd place winners will get $500k and $250k respectively.
The first seven episodes of the show have already introduced us to some of exciting companies like Magnetic 3D (a US-based company that is working to make 3D, VR and Metaverse more accessible by reducing the need for 3D glasses or VR headsets), ioNetworks Inc (a company from Taiwan which is using AI to power video systems and devices that use lenses or sensors), Yours Bank (a Brazilian digital bank that is aimed at adolescents and focuses on increasing their financial literacy), KA Imaging (a Canadian company creating innovative X-ray imaging technology that offers innovative solutions for medical, veterinary, and non-destructive test industrial markets), and OWO (a Portuguese company that is working on haptic technology to add real physical sensations to video games).
Some of the Indian startups that have been featured and whom you can vote for are:

  • Gynocup, a Silicon Valley-based eco-friendly, cost-effective menstrual cup
  • AssetVault, a blockchain-based solution that will help protect both physical and digital assets
  • Beatoven.ai, an AI product that creates unique mood-based music for videos and podcasts
  • JumpToPC, a low-cost hardware kit and free mobile application that wirelessly pairs your smartphone and TV to create a personal computer
  • Hotnot, a fashion social media platform where users can dictate fashion trends and save their favourite items.

So make sure to go vote for your favourite startup and give them a chance to win a direct entry to the Season 5 finale of Meet the Drapers.
