About this event

Imagine having 100 top startup speakers at your fingertips;

Startup leaders from 30+ countries to exchange the experience with;

And a startup competition that involves Silicon Valley investors and a shot of a $1,000,000 global prize!

Get ready to learn from the great entrepreneurs in the crowd, perhaps get an enhanced networking ticket to make more valuable contacts. Or aim high and take as shot at the world stage in our Startup Showcase & Competition.

There has never been a better time for people from emerging markets to step onto the world stage. Take your shot at learning, connecting, and creating value!
