What is the Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC)?
XTC is the world’s largest pitch contest that discovers and supports startups that dramatically solve human issues such as the United Nations SDGs with technology. It was held in 21 cities in 16 countries by a coalition of about 80 organizations such as world-renowned VCs and major companies, and by online public offering, and more than 3,700 startups from 92 countries participated in the previous competition in 2021. The 80 companies participating in the 2021 World Congress have raised a total of approximately 20 billion yen in funding after participating, 43% of which are startups by female entrepreneurs.
Startups participating in XTC are divided into 10 categories: agriculture/food, environment/energy, new materials, education, enabling technology, biotechnology, digital healthcare, fintech, transportation, and smart cities. Compete for resolution. The theme is to solve human problems through business rather than donations or subsidies, and startups participating in the finals are characterized by receiving generous mentoring for business and financing from overseas VCs and global companies.
