Seedstars World is coming to Samoa!

To attend the event on September 26th and watch the startup pitch: please register in the Eventbrite Attendee Registration Section.

The best startups from Apia will be invited for a 2 day training delivered by our own Seedstars team as well as local & regional mentors!

Achieving product-market fit is one of the most important goals for a startup, yet it is also one of the least understood concepts. The objective of the training is to help the startups build a product that customer will want, develop a clear competitive edge and learn how to effectively market themselves and their solution. Join us and take your venture to the next level!

*Open to the public*

After working closely with the entrepreneurs, we will invite the participants to pitch in front of top investors and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Apia 2019. The top 5 selected by the jury members will be rewarded with one free month of our brand new Investment Readiness Program while the winner will receive 3 months free.

The winning startup of Apia will win two, all expenses paid trips, to the Regional Summit and the Global Seedstars Summit in Switzerland where it will have the opportunity to connect with a global network of world class entrepreneurs, mentors and investors - and the chance to win up to USD500.000 in equity investment.
Seedstars is a catalytic platform for high growth emerging market startups.

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 critical issues often encountered in the ecosystem!

Apply Now! And get the opportunity to represent your country on a Global Stage and win a free trial to our investment readiness program!
