WHAT IS THE CREATIVE BUSINESS CUP?
Creative Business Cup is the world’s largest gathering of creative economy startups! The global competition brings together over 5,000 creative founders from 60 nations, all speaking the language of entrepreneurship. Rasmus Tscherning, CBC founder, calls it “the United Nations of entrepreneurship and creativity.” Winning teams from around the world gather in Copenhagen, Denmark, each November.
