More than a competition
The University Startup World Cup is organized by Venture Cup, a Danish non-profit organization founded in 2000 as one of the first entrepreneurial organisations in the country. They want to attract international talents to Copenhagen, while promoting Denmark as a leading startup hub for entrepreneurs.
The University Startup World Cup is more than just a competition, it is an opportunity to be part of an international network of experienced entrepreneurs and business professionals.
UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals will be the backbone of this year’s USWC!
The implications of not meeting the SDGs have real-world consequences that will touch the lives of everyone. Youth in particular will suffer the most if the SDGs are not met, simply due to the reality of longevity.
The fact is not meeting the SDGs is our problem, so involving and motivating youth to participate in achieving the SDGs is essential – especially given the high proportion of youth populations around the world, such as in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
On a global scale
Top teams from around the world are gathered in Copenhagen for one week. Here, they will develop and present their ideas, explore the Scandinavian start-up scene, meet with investors and finally compete to be voted the best startup in the world.
