Held in San Francisco, the event hosted 28 early stage companies from around the world who had won their regional heats. And America’s Leuko came out on top for its pioneering home-based screening tech, which monitors the ‘risk of infection in chemotherapy patients’.
Anis Uzzaman, CEO and General Partner of Fenox Venture Capital, and Chairman of Startup World Cup, said: “The Startup World Cup event was more successful than ever as a truly global event and facilitator in connecting ecosystem players from the U.S. and around the world with Silicon Valley and potential champions in important new global markets. This year’s event brought together startups, VCs and corporate investors from every continent for a cross-learning experience and type of Silicon Valley event that will foster innovation in the U.S. and globally.”
