Country Director's Message

Entrepreneurship World Cup is not a typical competition. In EWC, the changemakers or the startups not only get the chance to get a very lucrative cash prize but also the opportunity to shape up his/ her startups in the global perspective by the facilities like the world class accelerators, global mentors and the communities.
