The Entrepreneurship World Cup is open for 2020 and is accepting applications – aiming to expand beyond 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 $1 million in cash prizes plus additional investment opportunities and another $75 million in in-kind support

Global Entrepreneurship Network and GSVlabs are joining forces to lead the competition in the United States and Canada – helping entrepreneurs across the two countries start and scale.

“Entrepreneurs are risk takers and industry disruptors, accustomed to facing challenges head on,” said Jonathan Ortmans, president of Global Entrepreneurship Network. “Now more than ever, the world needs more entrepreneurs to unleash their ideas and develop innovative solutions and make the world a better place.”

"We are excited to see the entrepreneurial world come together at such-scale, and recognize innovators around the world not only at their best but at a time when they’re needed the most. GSVlabs is proud to be the technology platform for the EWC and co-organizer of the U.S. and Canadian national competitions," said Nikhil Sinha, CEO of GSVlabs. 

But 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. 

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. 

National Finals competitions are held through July 2020. The Global Finals are scheduled for October 2020 in Riyadh. To learn more or to apply, visit the Entrepreneurship World Cup at
