Since 2019, the Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) has evolved into a prominent startup pitch competition and support program, engaging over 370,000 entrepreneurs from 200+ countries. It has distributed $4 million in cash prizes, $150 million in in-kind prizes, and facilitated opportunities for winners to advance their ventures.
EWC extends beyond a mere competition, delivering numerous coaching and training hours along with tailored entrepreneurship programs for participants at all stages. The network established during this journey provides valuable guidance, propelling companies toward growth. EWC alumni, whether cash-prize winners or part of select cohorts, continue making a positive impact with innovative solutions.
Open to entrepreneurs worldwide, regardless of industry or company stage, EWC 2024 welcomes applicants to another year of competition and global connectivity.
No entry fee is required.
Startups globally are invited to apply.
Applicant startups must be legally registered or in the process of registering in their country of residence.
Startups should be ten years old or less by the date of the Global Finals, determined by the company registration date, not idea conception.
