What really drives me to come back here is seeing the passion that people bring to bear in terms of their concepts, their ideas and their innovation from all over the world

Otho E. Kerr III, Partner, Encourage Capital, USA

Being part of Creative Business Cup is the best thing that has happened to us since we started our company. I would wish for every startup that they could get the chance to be part of this amazing event.” Jakob Balslev, CEO & Founder, Rokoko, National Winner of Denmark 2013

Creative Business Cup is both a celebration of ideas and sort of a lab for creativity. The startups, investors, and jurors will open your mind to new ideas and new possibilities that will change the way you think. This event will help you understand that creativity is not just art — it’s everything you do in business, in leadership, and in life.
Amy Cosper, Founder, Radical Upstarts, USA

(…) Innovation challenges and Creative Business Cup help attract the brightest minds and focus on solving real problems. The setup is a demonstration of how small and big businesses can work together to create real impact through innovation.”
Harry Barraza, Head of Open Innovation at Arla Foods
