The Start-up world cup is coming to Belfast on Tuesday 16 January 2018, and you could be part of it.

This exciting opportunity is being brought to our city by The Belfast Global Shapers, in partnership with us, Ormeau Baths and Ulster University. It is dedicated to launching and advising the world’s next wave of leading entrepreneurs.

Project aim

The main aim of this initiative is to encourage local entrepreneurs to come forward with their innovative ideas to enhance:

  • healthcare
  • artificial intelligence such as:
    • voice recognition devices
    • robotics
    • transportation
    • financial technologies
    • IoT (Internet of Things)
    • augmented reality which is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world
  • agriculture

The goal is to improve lives and transform industries.

The Belfast Global Shapers will be hosting a regional qualifier event on Tuesday, 16 January, from 6pm - 8.30pm at Ormeau Baths. Up to 10 start-ups will be selected to pitch in Belfast and the winner will fly to San Francisco in May for the world final and the chance to win a $1 million investment.
