1776 Challenge Cup in partnership with Revolution and powered by UNION is much more than a competition — it’s a movement of startups bringing world-changing ideas to life and solving meaningful problems on a global stage.  Challenge Cup Global Finals convenes investors, policymakers, and innovators from across the globe to examine and discuss pressing global challenges. 


1776 started Challenge Cup four years ago to discover the most promising, highly scalable startups poised to solve complex challenges across borders, regulated industries and emerging technologies.

This year, Challenge Cup is presented in partnership with investment firm Revolution, an active champion for the emergence of entrepreneurial communities and startups outside of Silicon Valley. This partnership reinforces 1776’s and Revolution’s core belief around startups and innovation: great companies can start and scale anywhere.


Challenge Cup takes place in 75 cities. In each of these cities, 1776 partners with a leading local startup program to host a Challenge Cup experience on 1776’s UNION Network, a digital platform that connects startup ecosystems around the world. 


Kickers IU TOVNI LTHR black LACER Black These qualifying competitions identify one winning startup from each city to advance to Virtual Semifinals via UNION. From there, the top 20 startups are chosen as the Challenge Cup Global Finalists. At Global Finals, one lucky winner will receive a $100,000 investment from Revolution, the DC-based investment firm!
