The EWC is hosted by the Misk Global Forum, Global Entrepreneurship Network and The Global Education & Leadership Foundation. It is supported by a range of global partners, including GSVlabs, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, TechCrunch, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, WebCongress, Endeavor, and organizations that hosted the EWC National Finals.

All 175,000 global participants gained access to free training materials from experienced mentors and US$25,000 worth of perks from dozens of partners including Zoom, Amazon Web Services and Shopify. Already, more than US$3.5 million worth of perks have been claimed by EWC 2020 contestants.
