Want to get involved with the most forward thinking startups in Beijing and one of the biggest worldwide startup competitions?

Want to be apart of the discovery of the most promising, highly scalable startups that are poised to solve the major challenges of our time?



Each year 1776, a global incubator and venture fund, hosts a worldwide tournament called the Challenge Cup. Startups advance through three rounds: Local, Regional and Global Finals. All of the regional winners and a host of wild cards will be invited to participate in the Challenge Cup Global Finals next June in Washington, D.C. There, they’ll compete for over $1 million in prizes, as well as spend time with the investors, customers, media and other key connections that can help them succeed on a global scale.

Come join us at the 1776 Challenge Cup Beijing event on November 10th, which will focus on bringing together startups in the fields of healthcare, education, energy, and cities. This event features unique and interesting pitches from participating companies and startups, as well as a multi-stakeholder panel covering topics of interest to startups developing on the China-Western countries.

A special appearance will even be made by the Mayor of Washington DC, who will also be announcing the Beijing winners of the Global Challenge Cup.
