“good things happen when people come together”

As a Y-Combinator graduate, series A company, and remote-first organization, Suiteness knows all too well the joys and pains required to operate a successful startup. As a suite-only booking website, we also know the benefits of using a suite as a venue to bring together a team (we’ve done it ourselves). We want to reward one talented startup with an opportunity to stay together as a team in San Francisco, to ideate, to pitch to SF-based VCs, to attend a conference or to escape for a much-needed company offsite. All you need to do is convince us, and the community that your team needs to come together in SF.


Connectivity and communication are crucial for startups to jumpstart new innovation. Suiteness Startup Suite is your team’s chance to win a three-night stay in one of the finest suites in San Francisco by submitting a video explaining why you need a suite in San Francisco. The contest follows a two-step online application process which will help Suiteness choose a winner with the help of the community.



If you are a startup that has been operating for 0-5 years, upload a video no longer than one minute to YouTube, Instagram or Vimeo, and tell us why your team needs to stay together in San Francisco. During Phase 1 of the application process from September 7, 2017, to October 22, 2017, at 11:59 PM CDT, submit a link to your video using the ‘APPLY’ button below.


All videos will be posted for public voting during Phase 2 of the application process from October 10, 2017, to October 22, 2017, at 11:59 PM CDT. During this phase, share your entries with everyone you know asking them to vote for you to win. You are encouraged to promote your entries via email or on your social media channels. The more votes, the better your chances!


The winning startup will be rewarded a complimentary three-night stay in a luxury suite at the acclaimed Hotel Zeppelin San Francisco.While in San Francisco, the team will be given the chance to meet with leading venture capitalists Eric Weisen – General Partner at Bullpen Capital, Ludwig Ensthaler – Partner at Global Founders Capital, Eric Scott -Partner at SciFi VC and Boris Silver – Co-Founder and President at FundersClub.
