The Creative Business Cup Innovation Challenges present new opportunities for startups to become involved in CBC, pitch for investors and win a trip to the CBC International Finals in November in Copenhagen, Denmark – also for the startups that are not national winners! CBC Innovation Challenge is a new initiative that aims to strengthen and support innovation in specific areas and to invite the startups that come up with great solutions to these challenges to Copenhagen to pitch before the 400 investors from EBAN – European Business Angel Network – that will attend CBC this year.
What is CBC Innovation Challenge?
There are in 2015 six CBC Innovation Challenges, see the description below. Startups that belong to one or more of these categories are welcome to participate in the CBC Innovation Challenge. Each challenge will have a set of screeners and jury that will determine which startups will be invited to attend the international finals in Copenhagen. During the finals, each of the Innovation Challenge will have its own sessions with seminars, workshops, pitching and it will be attended by investors within the respective areas. Examples of startups: The CBC 2013 Winner from Croatia “Teddy The Guardian” could have participated in the Innovation Challenge “Health” and the CBC 2014 Winner from Poland “Professor Why” could have participated in the “Play & Learn” Innovation Challenge.
Who is the target group?
The target group of the CBC Innovation Challenges is all CBC participants on the national level that belong to one or more of the Innovation Challenge areas. This means that although some startups are not national winners, they may be chosen to attend and pitch at a CBC Innovation Challenge during the CBC International Final in Copenhagen. Already in 2014, startups related to food, where invited to pitch and win the Food Innovation Prize.
The CBC Innovation Challenges are:
1. Food Innovation

3. Smart Sustainable living
