Global Start-Up Competition

The AngelHub & WHub Global Start-up Competition (GSC) is a brand-new competition. GSC’s mission is to discover the finest global tech companies scaling in Asia and help them reach their full potential by equipping them with the visibility, network, and investment they need to succeed.

Following the success of GSC Round 1, Round 2 will now be launched. Round 1 began on one of the days of the StartmeupHK Festival week, as part of the Startup Impact Summit 2020.

The program hosted regional startup competition round shows in 12 countries throughout EMEA and Asia, bringing together notable entrepreneurs, investors, and corporations from each area. All regional winners will then be asked to compete and present themselves in front of over 3,000 people and important players in the innovation and tech sector at the GSC Grand Finale, which will be revealed soon.
