Startup World Cup is a global conference and competition organized by Fenox Venture Capital. There will be 16 regional startup competitions in 13 different countries across North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. The 16 regional champion teams from around the world will compete at the Grand Finale in San Francisco on March 24th, 2017 for the Startup World Cup championship battle.

The event will bring immense visibility to the startup and help grow the overall startup ecosystem in New York and the US.
“Because of New York’s strong reputation as the world’s financial hub, the entrepreneurship scene does not get as much attention,” said Anis Uzzaman, CEO and General Partner of Fenox Venture Capital and Chairman of Startup World Cup. “I hope this opportunity shows the value of New York’s active startup ecosystem, which is full of bright entrepreneurs.”
“We are thrilled to host Startup World Cup at our flagship U.S. show,” said John Durham, General Manager for ad:tech New York. “The soul of our event is innovation and the spirit of competition that often goes hand in hand with it.
