At the Startup World Cup Championships, students present their start-ups in two age leagues:
  • MiniBoss Junior League (children and teenagers 6-14),
  • BigBoss Senior league (youth 15+).
The jury assesses startups in two categories:

Innovative entrepreneurship

SIFE - Startups in innovative free entrepreneurship

These entrepreneurs start a company knowing from day one that their vision could change the world. Innovators are the types of entrepreneurs who come up with completely new ideas and turn them into viable businesses.

In most cases, these entrepreneurs change the way people think about and do things. Such entrepreneurs tend to be extremely passionate and obsessive, deriving their motivation from the unique nature of their business idea.

Innovative entrepreneurs also find new ways to market their products by choosing product differentiation strategies that make their company stand out from the crowd. Moreover, sometimes it is not just standing out from the crowd but also actually creating a new crowd.

They hire the best and the brightest. Their job is to search for a repeatable and scalable business model. When they find it, their focus on scale requires even more venture capital to fuel rapid expansion.

Innovators such as Steve Jobs (Apple), Larry Page (Google), Richard Branson (Virgin Group), Ilon Musk (Tesla), and Bill Gates (Microsoft) are a prime example of innovative entrepreneurship.

Social entrepreneurship

SAGE - Startups for the advancement of the global environment

Social entrepreneurs are innovators who focus on creating products and services that solve social needs and problems. However, unlike scalable startups their goal is to make the world a better place, not to take market share or to create to wealth for the founders. They may be nonprofit, for-profit, or hybrid.

The well-known social innovators such as Muhammad Yunus (Grameen Bank, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner, microcredit pioneer), Bill Drayton (Ashoka, which provides search and support for social entrepreneurs around the world), Rachel Braten (Yoga Girl and online channel, Shiz Shaheed (ambassador of the Malala Foundation, helps empower women and girls by promoting and expanding access to education), Bleu Mr. Mikoski (TOMS Shoes, a shoe company that donates one pair of shoes for each sold to support water) are a prime example of social entrepreneurship.

Startup World Cup Championships have been held since 2000 under the auspices of the International Educational Network MiniBoss & BigBoss Business School (The United Kingdom).
