The goal with University Startup World Cup is to feature the best university startups from around the world and give them a network which will help them grow – both businesswise and personally.
The best university startups from around the world come together to network, exhibit and pitch for a chance of becoming the world’s best university startup!
In 2020, the World Cup is hosted by Venture Cup China in Wenzhou, China on October 17th – 20th 2020.
