The 1776 Challenge Cup is a worldwide tournament for the most promising startups to:

  • Win cash prizes

  • Make international connections

  • Share their vision on a global stage

Tampa was extremely lucky to be chosen as 1 of 45 cities around to globe to represent their local startup community on a global stage.  This represents a huge vote of confidence in our region.

How it works

Startups advance through three rounds: Local, Regional and Global Finals.

There are eight categories:

Cities, Education, Energy, Food, Health, Money, Security, and Transportation.

More than twenty startups will compete at the local event, pitching their business to a panel of judges.

Three will move on to compete in the regional competition.

All of the regional winners and a host of wild cards will be invited to participate in the Challenge Cup Global Finals next June in Washington, D.C. There, they’ll compete for over $1 million in prizes, as well as spend time with the investors, customers, media and other key connections that can help them succeed on a global scale.
