University Startup World Cup Program

Posted 1 year ago

In 2015, Denmark hosted the first University Startup World Cup, which featured startups worldwide. This startup program reaches millions of readers throughout the world, has met with some of Denmark’s major firms, and is one of the best cash awards.

Except for RUC, all Danish universities are members of Venture Cup Denmark. They seek to promote and highlight entrepreneurship among university students, bridging the gap between academia and the business world. Venture Cup Denmark collaborates closely with partners worldwide, typically organizations or colleges focused on startups, entrepreneurship, and innovation.


University Startup World Cup (USWC) is an annual event powered by Venture Cup Denmark. 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!
