Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge

Logo
Website
Description

The Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge is a renowned global startup competition designed specifically to address the needs of deep tech entrepreneurs across several industries. The Challenge was created in 2013 by two Ph.D. students, Xavier Duportet and Arnaud De La Tour, who realized that the resources needed to propel emerging technologies were different from those of traditional web and mobile innovation.

The Challenge gives scientists and deep tech entrepreneurs around the globe a platform for their research and projects, providing participants with equity-free funding, global visibility and connections with key players in the deep tech innovation network and other fellow entrepreneurs. To date, previous early-stage participants have raised more than $300 million in funding.

The Grand Finals will be held in Paris on March 11th-13th, 2020 during the Hello Tomorrow Global Summit.

Applications to the Global Challenge are entirely free.

  • The Top deep tech startups (around 500) are selected by Hello Tomorrow and invited to the Hello Tomorrow Summit to interact with sector-specific and invite-only investors, top executives, accelerators and fellow founders. They are also invited to the Investor & Business Day, for one-on-one meetings with 200+ top-tier VCs and 100+ international corporates, which will take place the day before the Summit;
  • 80 finalists (around 6 finalists per track) will have the opportunity to pitch in front of a select audience of 400 people, competing for the €10k prize per track;
