As the coronavirus spreads, we find ourselves urgently navigating a new reality. At Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC), we’re staying focused on our mission: empower startups to innovate and meet the growing challenges we face as a society. More than ever, we continue to believe that technology, properly harnessed, can help everyone on the planet enter a new chapter that is brighter, healthier, and better prepared.
As the Global Finals approach, XTC2020 has made big strides. So far:
The last three regional events of XTC2020 generated nine more finalists.
XTC Indonesia, hosted March 18 in Jakarta by our partner Kejora Ventures, selected startups focusing on urbanization and environmental issues:
On March 25, XTC Singapore hosted by our partner SGInnovate, yielded startups focusing on deep tech solutions:
XTC Sydney, held April 6 as a virtual event via Zoom hosted by our partner ACTAI Global, whittled 103 applicants to 15 pitching startups and to three finalists:
On June 5, the XTC evaluation committee will announce 52 top startups. These startups will join a virtual boot camp in June, where they will connect with a network of investors, corporations, and mentors.
In late June, the finalists will pitch the XTC Evaluation Committee, who will select one winner per category, the Female Founder Award winner, and the COVID-19 Innovation Award winner.
The category winners and special award winners will be announced at the XTC Global Finals virtual event on July 15, 2020. There, each startup will pitch to world-leading investors, who will select the XTC Global Winner.
Although originally scheduled live events will now take place virtually, participants still gain all the benefits of XTC. Stay tuned for more updates and don’t forget to check back to join the Finals Livestream on July 15.
