About Seedstars World

Seedstars World is an exclusive seed-stage startup competition focused on emerging markets and fast growing startup scenes. Our mission is to promote, connect and invest in startups from emerging markets.

We host startup events in 75+ countries to boost emerging startup ecosystems, encourage entrepreneurship and source investment opportunities. The core community is getting bigger each year (20 winner alumni from 2013, 36 in 2014 54 in 2015, 65 in 2016 and adding 75+ this year). The network is vast with more than 1,000+ partners around the world and is populated by people and companies who are having a big impact on and off the web.

In each of the cities, we invite one startup to come to Switzerland to pitch to win up to $500,000 investment from Seedstars and partners.

The Seedstars World annual conference takes place in April each year in Switzerland to determine the best global startup and celebrate entrepreneurship. The event is attended by over 1000+ entrepreneurs, business leaders, HNWIs and investment professionals.
