Asia’s Longest-Running Global Student Startup Competition

The competition is Asia’s Longest-Running Global Student Startup Competition; all disciplines from around the world, both business and non-business related, are welcome. Join us and compete for cash prizes and a prestigious Royal Trophy.

Our panel of judges comprises of leading investors, entrepreneurs, and business professionals. We will be seeking out the most investor-ready startup ventures based on submitted business plans, live pitches, and venture exhibits.

BBC Thailand now its own Competition!

In 2017, the Thailand Track Round was introduced as a separate competition pathway for teams representing Thai Academic Institutions to have a reserved spot in the Semi-final Round. This year, with restrictive international travel, we decided to keep the Global rounds virtual but to break off the Thailand rounds to be its own standalone competition. And so, BBC Thailand 2021 will be hosted LIVE at Sasin School of Management! The Winner of BBC Thailand 2021 will still be awarded a postion of Semi-finalist in BBC Global 2021, but the competition for the spot will be more hard-fought, with more teams, more rounds, and more judges.

More updates on the 2021 competitions will keep coming, so for now – save the dates!
