Event description

Seedstars World is coming back to Hong Kong!

The 8 best startups from Hong Kong will be invited to pitch in front of an investment panel and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Hong Kong 2017. 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.

In addition to seeing the top startups pitch, you can look forward to an event filled with disruptive tech, inspirational discussions, networking sessions and one flight ticket for the winner to come to Switzerland to compete for over $1mn in investment.
