Event description

Seedstars World is back coming to Yangon!

The top 8 startups from Yangon will then be invited to pitch in front of an investment panel and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Yangon 2018. The winning startup will join the global Seedstars Family and get a free trip to both the Seedstars Asia Regional Summit and the Seedstars Global Summit that include our tried and tested bootcamp and investor forum, and the opportunity to win up to USD 1 million in equity investments. It's a catalytic platform for high growth emerging market startups. Winners will also be considered for acceleration in the Seedstars Growth Program.
