Startup World Cup Championship 2020 Online. What are SIFE and SAGE nominations?

At Startup World Cup Championship, students present their startups in two age leagues:
  • MiniBoss Junior League (children and teenagers 6-14),
  • BigBoss Senior league (youth 15+). 
The jury members evaluate startups in two categories:

Innovative entrepreneurship

(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.

In most cases, these entrepreneurs change the way people think about and do things. Innovative startups are always commercial (for-profit).

Social entrepreneurship

(SAGE - Startups for the advancement of a global environment).

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

Social startups can be non-profit, commercial (for-profit) or hybrid.

The Startup World Cup Championship is the main world’s annual event for young entrepreneurs. This year's event takes place online. Starts July 5th аnd it continues until July 11th.
