The SWCC Organizing Committee has determined that the Startup World Cup Championships Kids, Teens and Youth will take place July 16-23, 2023 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.

STARTUP WORLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP (SWCC) is a main global event for young entrepreneurs aged 6-25, which brings together national elites from different countries of the world to communicate and determine the best innovative startups of the year. SWCCs have been held since 2000. Official website:

MISSION: global unity and cooperation between young national business elites for the benefit of the world.

OFFICIAL NATIONAL DELEGATIONS from 27 countries of the world will be present at the Championship including government representatives, well-known businesspeople, media, students and their parents. Young entrepreneurs from all over the world represent the intelligence of their nation. Famous entrepreneurs support the youngest one as a Jury Member.

AGE LEAGUES. At the SWCC, students present their startups in TWO AGE LEAGUES:

  • BIGBOSS Senior league (youth 15-25 and adults 25+).

4th day – BIGBOSS 2023 GLOBAL BUSINESS FORUM (Day Time);

SWCC Award Ceremony and Gala Dinner (Eve Time).

5th day – Departure or BRITISH BUSINESS TOUR.


The jury assesses startups in two categories:


SIFE - Startups in innovative free entrepreneurship

These entrepreneurs start a company knowing from day one that their vision could change the world. Innovators are the types of entrepreneurs who come up with completely new ideas and turn them into viable businesses. These entrepreneurs change the way people think about and do things. Such entrepreneurs tend to be extremely passionate and obsessive, deriving their motivation from the unique nature of their business idea. Innovative startups are always commercial (for-profit).


SAGE - Startups for the advancement of the global environment

Social entrepreneurs are innovators who focus on creating products and services that solve social problems. However, unlike scalable startups their goal is to make the world a better place, not to take market share or to create wealth for the founders. Social startups can be non-profit, commercial (for-profit) or hybrid.

We held championships in the last 22 years in the USA, Ukraine, Canada, Brazil, Bulgaria, South Korea, the Philippines and others. Each time we cooperated with a local government and global corporations to support this important event for the successful future of the next generations.

In view of the above, we invite you to be a VIP JURY MEMBER, PARTNER or SPONSOR of the Startup World Championship to grow up the next generation of innovative entrepreneurs.


We ask you to arrange an appointment for a personal meeting or send us a written confirmation of your participation in SWCC 2023.

With the greatest respect and hope for our fruitful cooperation!

Happy to be a part of the team that is levelling up Britain!

Startup Forum in Kakhovka: children presented social and business projects

Kakhovka hosted the first Startup Forum. The purpose of the Forum is to identify and support innovative and socially helpful business projects for children aged 6-17 years. The mission of this event is the development of the Ukrainian economy through the support of business initiatives for children and young people.

Young businessmen, representatives of the Kakhovka and Nova Kakhovka schools, and pupils of the international educational network MiniBoss Business School, throughout the year, studied the basics of economics and entrepreneurship, inventive thinking and project management. The children presented their first real business projects.

The Startup Forum was held at the Park Avenue restaurant. Young speakers had the opportunity to present their critical and perspective ideas for consideration by a jury - entrepreneurs and top managers of companies, and representatives of government bodies, in order to get an objective assessment of projects and investments for their development and implementation.

In total, 4 projects were presented. The smallest participants presented a project of the preparation of sweets on the basis of natural ingredients. The middle group shared the idea of making soap with toys inside (in order to motivate kids to wash their hands). The next project is the production of screens for the home puppet theatre. And the older participants proposed a social project "Clean City", which involves the manufacture of underground trash tanks, which will eliminate many problems with garbage in the city (this proposal was of particular interest).

The jury had an opportunity to appreciate the prepared projects (some even to taste), express their impressions, comment, and ask a question. After all, for children, recognition, objective judgments and constructive remarks are very important. As well as members of the jury provided partial financial support, and grants for a total amount of UAH 4860 for the implementation of startups.

By providing support, everyone takes part in the formation of a new, powerful generation - a young generation who can think big, and make important decisions. This is surely Mayor Andriy Andriyovych Dyachenko, who urged children "not to be afraid to make mistakes because every mistake is an experience", which will help in the future.

Beginning to create something at 6 years old, there is a chance to avoid many mistakes and risks at an independent age. By creating their own projects, children gain experience and motivators of a life position.

Lesia Jozhikova, director of the branch, says: "Our minibosses turn knowledge acquired into a business school into successful projects and, most importantly, these projects are useful for society."

Deputy Mayor of the city of Nova Kakhovka, Vladimir Nikolaevich Serovatka thanked the organizers for a wonderful project that "teaches children to think logically, ask questions and answer them, have their own opinions."

The West gave a lot of nice things. So, Olga Sergeyevna Rzhanova, the manager of the PrivatBank department, invited the children to visit their department. He also promised to take 8 free lessons at the Business School to provide practical assistance in creating future business projects. Olga Sergeyevna presented an invitation to the "Quest-room", which is located in Kherson.

A lot of kind words came to the address of the organizers and participants of the forum. There was a conviction that parents made the most important investment in life - an investment from their children. All members of the jury presented the certificates of members of the council of businessmen for the support of the young entrepreneurial elite and assistance in the creation of social projects.

The forum is supported by the mayor of Kakhovka. School pupils plan to take part in the championship of Ukraine, which will take place in June and in the World Cup, which will be held in Bulgaria in August. So luck and new creative ideas for young businessmen!
