The competition was first founded in 2018 to help find and give visibility to diverse startups disrupting the market and changing the world for the better. This year, a new group of rapidly growing startups will have the opportunity to pitch their missions to a judging panel featuring representatives from SCIENCE, M13, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Tipster and more. The competition will take place at the fourth annual WORLDZ Summit on September 10 & 11, 2019 in Long Beach, CA.

Mighty Well CEO & Co-Founder, Emily Levy described the impact of participating in the program as helping her “…connect with influencers for my brand that I had been trying to connect with for months on social media who I got to meet in person and have since become brand ambassadors for Mighty Well.
