Challenge Cup pegs Denver for global startup competition

The Challenge Cup has tentatively picked Denver to be one of 16 host cities for its global startup competition this fall.


Starting in October, the Challenge Cup will include pitch competitions in 16 cities around the world. Startups will vie to be finalists in the categories of health, education, energy, and city challenges (like transportation or government) – some of the stickiest and most crucial issues facing society today. The Challenge Cup is supported partly by a $180,000 grant from the District of Columbia.

Tech Cocktail will host the US events, which tentatively include San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, and DC. We’ll also be covering the eight events abroad, tentatively including London, Berlin, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Cape Town, Mumbai, Beijing, and Sao Paulo.
