Vote for PermitMe and help Houston win the Global Startup Battle

The Global Startup Battle, a competition among all the Startup Weekend events that were held during Global Entrepreneurship Week, launched today. PermitMe, Houston’s November 2012 Startup Weekend 1st place winner, is going against over 100 teams from around the world for prizes including a trip to Brazil, a trip to San Francisco, and a visit to the Googleplex.

The Global Startup Battle puts teams against each other in a race to get the most number of votes. A panel that includes startup leaders like Tony Hsieh and Brad Feld will review the top 15 videos and pick a winner.

Starting a small business? PermitMe makes the process of identifying and applying for the necessary permits easy.

PermitMe aims to make the permitting process easy for small businesses. More information and a prototype of their product can be found at PermitMe.co. Last year, Tapja represented Houston in the GSB and placed 3rd in the nation and 16th globally.
