Extreme Tech Challenge open for entries


// The world’s largest startup competition for entrepreneurs to address global challenges is coming to West Tech Fest. Nominations are now open…

The annual West Tech Fest – the best week of the year – is coming to town again in early December, and this year they bring the Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC).

Inspired by the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the XTC looks to “support and showcase the innovators harnessing the power of technology to address the greatest challenges facing humanity and our planet.”

Through its global startup competition, XTC provides top contenders the potential for global visibility, the ability to raise capital, network with global entities (corporations, VCs, partners), and gain mentorship opportunities they need to pioneer technological breakthroughs and help power a sustainable future.

The top three finalists will go into the global shortlist.

If you want the chance to receive world-class mentorship and to pitch to leading investors, now is the time to apply.

Applications close on November 12th 2020.
