Creative Business Cup (CBC), often called “the United Nations of entrepreneurship and creativity,” is the world’s largest gathering of creative economy startups. The CBC Global Finals take place every year in Denmark, and the competition brings together over 5,000 creative founders from 60 nations, all "speaking the language of entrepreneurship" as CBC Founder, Rasmus Tscherning, says.

Creative Startups is excited to host the Creative Business Cup USA Finals at Denver Startup Week! The USA winner will receive an all-expense paid trip to Copenhagen (including airfare, hotel, meals) valued at $3,000, and additional legal, accounting, and coaching services worth a combined $10,000.

Last year's CBC USA Winners, the dynamic mother-daughter duo Mixtroz, went on to win the Invio Experience Technology Solution Prize at the Global Finals, and have grown by leaps and bounds ever since. In addition to a cameo on A&E's Rooster and Butch, Mixtroz founders Kerry Schrader and Ashlee Ammons went on to win $100k from former AOL CEO Steve Case during his Rise of the Rest Birmingham competition.
