About SWCS 2017

Startup World Cup is a worldwide startup event and a competition organised by venture capital fund Fenox. It was created right in the Silicon Valley, with a goal to support worldwide innovations, connect startup eco-systems, open doors to talented businessmen and identify the top 20 startup projects in the world.

The winners of regional rounds will match each other on 18th May 2018 in the grand finale in Silicon Valley, where they’ll fight with their own projects to win $1 million, or even more.

Startup Summit is a traditional, pure Czech event, which is held by investment fund Air Ventures. The history of the event began in 2012 with speakers from well-known global corporations and startups making an appearance in Prague – from TechCrunch editors, bosses of Startupbootcamp and founders of promising startups, such as, to corporate captains like Andre Wehrner from Skoda Auto, or Tomas Budnik from O2.
