XTC 2022 Global Finals

June 2022
Startups come from almost 100 countries for the chance to pitch at XTC. Although they have different homes and backgrounds, there is one thing in common: their innovations could make the world a better place.

XTC is the world’s largest social innovation startup competition [and] is an incredibly fitting forum for the leaders of tomorrow to be able to unleash their potential. 

Shankar Chandran
Partner at Walden Catalyst Ventures

We live in extraordinary times, but they are also times of great hope. As a global startup, you have to think about how the world is changing today... If you are a startup, you need to think about how you can ride these waves of change...

David Johnson
Managing Director, Intel Capital

I encourage startup CEOs to look not just for corporate investors, but for good corporate investors. As a startup, you want access to capital as well as to investors who can help you with follow-on rounds, with hiring, and with access to management talent.
