With local entries from over 80 countries and an equal number of Creative Business Cup national winners, all set to compete at the Creative Business Cup, this competition stands as the world's largest platform for creative and innovative startups.


Creative entrepreneurs and startups from around the world are encouraged to apply for the Creative Business Cup 2024 competition. There are no specific requirements regarding the age of your company, turnover, or the number of employees. The application deadline is April 1st 2024, but please be aware that certain countries might have different deadlines.

To qualify, you should:

  • Showcase creativity and innovation.
  • Have an idea with substantial market potential.
  • Not have received more than $1 million USD in investment/funding.
  • Be registered as a legal entity.


Your application will be reviewed and evaluated by an international or national jury. Depending on your country of application, you may advance to the national finals if selected as a national finalist or proceed directly to the Creative Business Cup Global Finals as a national winner. The application link remains consistent for participants from all countries, but the deadlines and conditions for national stages hinge on the national partner (organizer). In the absence of a national organizer in your represented country, your application will be reviewed by the international committee.

If you are chosen as the national winner, you'll receive an invitation to the Creative Business Cup 2024 Global Finals in June 2024. This global business forum offers expert mentoring sessions, investor and partner meetings, a creative market, expert sessions, keynotes and networking opportunities.


Winners of the CBC Global Finals will gain access to substantial support to foster the growth of their startups and reach new markets. This support includes business services, programs, mentoring, and investment opportunities provided by our esteemed partners, investors, and top mentors.

We invite creatives from all over the world to apply and get a chance to become the best creative startup of the year 2024!
