Become the next Seedstars Global Winner
We are committed to supporting seed-stage startups from emerging markets as we know how difficult it can be to raise funds in these ecosystems.We believe that $500k in funding is a great foundation to kick-start the creation of any sustainable tech solution aimed at improving people’s lives. We have travelled to 80+ countries throughout the year to select the most promising startups from Asia, Africa, MENA, CEE and Latam, which have all been offered two-way plane tickets to Switzerland where they will pitch their ideas in front of investors in order to win up to $500k in investments!
Global & Regional Prizes
We know how hard it is for seed-stage startups in emerging markets to find sufficient funding. We’ve seen bootstrapping taken to the extreme with one founder even selling his house to fund his startup! Thankfully there are institutions looking to provide mentoring, access and financial support to top entrepreneurial talent in emerging markets.
In partnership with School of Management Fribourg and TRECC, we are scouting for the most transformative tech startups in education. A prize in the value of USD 50,000 will be awarded to the winner to help him/her expand in new markets and make a bigger impact.
