Venture Cup is the competition for the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. Our purpose is to connect people with ideas with experts and the crowd, to ignite the creation of new businesses and empower the growth of Sweden. We are a non-profit organization, and open for everyone who wants to test their business ideas. Thanks to our financial partners, we each year donate 1, 3 million SEK to creative ideas with long-term sustainable growth and verified demand from customers.
Venture Cup is a non-profit organization that was founded in the west of Sweden in 1998 on a initiative by McKinsey & Company in cooperation with Chalmers, Gothenburg University and Innovationsbron.
Today the organization is supported by a majority of Sweden's universities and colleges, and also by partners, both commercial businesses and from the public sector.
