Spotlight on Startups

In addition to the dating conference, GDI is very excited to be launching our very first startup competition – Spotlight on Startups.

Spotlight on Startups, which is free to enter, will see the most exciting and innovative dating startups battle each other to be named the GDI Spotlight winner.

During the evening event, we will provide pizza and drinks as the hottest new dating startups pitch, get grilled by attendees & experts, before the winners are picked by an audience vote.
