We welcome startups from all over the world that are interested in presenting their products and representing their country at the 3rd Annual World Cup Tech Challenge. In order to be considered for the competition, please visit our application page, fill out all the boxes, and upload an Executive Summary of no more than two pages together with a 2-minute video-pitch (video is optional for the application phase, but will be mandatory for the online voting if your company qualifies to the finals).
24 Startups from across the globe are selected through a thorough qualification process by 35 judges. The startups compete in 6 different groups (tech categories below). The Groups each have 4 spots available, and a country can only be represented once in a group. The deadline for submission is April 15th—however, we will be screening applications as they come in, and therefore strongly encourage you to send in your application before the deadline. The 24 qualified startups will be announced no later than May 1st
The Silicon Valley Forum team wish you the very best of luck in competing for the Cup and awesome prizes in the World Cup Tech Challenge 2016!
