Top 5 Reasons to Attend

1. Challenge Cup-Caribbean (CCC) provides an opportunity to connect with entrepreneurs, the support community from across multiple islands, the diaspora, and the 1776 global network.

2. All 20 finalists selected to compete and present at CCC will be listed on CRN and 1776 websites to increase awareness about the startup, and certain startups will be paired with media outlets for interviews.

3. The 3 winning startups from CCC will receive a prize package of a small cash stipend, guaranteed admission and free travel (hotel & airfare) from the Local to Regional level of competition in New York City, and access to a network of experienced business mentors and potential international investors.

4. Startups that succeed at the Regional event in New York City will have an opportunity to attend the Global Finals in Washington, D.C., where $175,000 (USD) in cash and up to $1 million (USD) in investments is up for grabs.

5. Even if you are not competing, you can register to attend, hear from featured speakers, and learn about how startups are tackling challenges across diverse industries. The event is FREE (so is the food and drinks).
