The Startup World Cup is an international competition organized by Venture Capital firm Pegasus Tech Ventures (known for funding successful startups such as SpaceX, Airbnb and Twitter), with the goal of connecting startup ecosystems worldwide. Promising startups have the opportunity to pitch their ideas and compete in various stages until the final round in Silicon Valley, where the winning company will receive an investment prize of 1 million US dollars.

The Luxembourg final will be held in Kirchberg on Thursday, 6 June 2024, and hosted by EY Luxembourg. The winner of the local pitching competition will represent Luxembourg at the next round in San Francisco, competing against more than 40 other candidates.
