Event description

Migration Challenge is coming!

IOE & Seedstars are partnering to find innovative solutions to promote skills mobility with products that bridge the information gaps in global migration systems.

We are looking for start-ups from Latin America and Africa that create the most promising human resource, fintech, civictech, edtech and other innovative products to span the information divide between employers and migrants and improve the implementation of migration policies.

Primary users of the product would be governments, employers and migrants.

The innovation should assist with better matching employment sectors facing skills shortages with trained regular migrants - expats, temporary workers, seasonal workers, intra-company transferees, solutions should also provide ways for governments to share information and best practices to improve their policies. And it should provide migrant workers with access to financial, educational, labour mobility services


1) Have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

2) Have a maximum of USD 500,000 of funding to date

You can look forward to an event filled with disruptive tech, inspirational discussions, networking sessions and world-class mentoring on migration debate!
