The Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) is open for its 2nd edition 2020 and is accepting applications – aiming to expand past the 102,000 contestants from 187 countries in its first year. The program offers a chance to pitch on a global stage for a share of US$1 million in cash prizes plus additional investment opportunities and another US$75 million in in-kind support.
South Korea’s leading startup media company beSUCCESS Media Group has partnered with the Misk Global Forum, Global Entrepreneurship Network and The Global Education & Leadership Foundation to help entrepreneurs around the world to start and scale. EWC is more than just a global pitch competition with a shot at life-changing prizes. It elevates entrepreneurs from all stages — idea-stage, early-stage, growth-stage or beyond – by providing them with tools and resources to grow their venture.
beSUCCESS will be hosting a National finals competition for South Korean startups on August 25, 2020. The competition will be hosted virtually on the EWC website. The last date for South Korean startups to apply is August 19, 2020. This is the first time a national competition is being held in South Korea. Global finals are scheduled for October 2020 in Riyadh.
EWC Accelerates is a virtual training and mentorship program that helps entrepreneurs hone their skills and increase their chances of winning their national competitions – as well as those who advance to the Global Finals. The EWC online platform also offers all contestants who complete their applications access to more than $25,000 in perks from partners such as Google Cloud, Hubspot, Stripe and more.
Each registered entry into this year’s EWC gets immediate and unlimited access to $25,000 worth of support services to resources from Google Cloud, Hubspot , Stripe and others. To learn more or to apply, visit the Entrepreneurship World Cup at entrepreneurshipworldcup.com
