In 2021 alone, the XTC competition attracted over 3,700 startup applications from nearly 100 countries. 80 startup finalists were selected and 43% of those were female founded. The finalist cohort collectively raised over US $233 million in venture investment since being selected. XTC now boasts 21 regional competitions and 71 global partners composed of corporations, venture capital firms, universities, policymakers, and tech conferences and hundreds of informal partners.

This new Norway regional competition finale will be held on March 21, 2022 at BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo. Tech Startups founded or co-founded by Norwegian entrepreneurs are invited to apply to this new regional competition by March 4, 2022.
