What is Startup Games?
Startup Games is a 501c3 organization delivering a high energy competition that engages startups in tournament-style games for charity. Young professionals and senior executives play side-by-side in ping pong, dodgeball, Mario Kart 64 and more. Each startup plays for the charity of their choice, and every charity walks away with a grant for their organization. The largest portion of the funds raised go to the charities of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams.
