Seedstars World is an exclusive global startup competition and network to identify the leading seed-stage startups across emerging markets. Our mission is to reduce unemployment in emerging markets through the promotion and investment in entrepreneurship. We already traveled to 35+ countries over the past 2 years, received 2500+ applications and listened to 800+ startups pitching. To date, our portfolio of startups has raised $20M. This year we will host startup events in 50+ countries (including 12 in Africa) to boost emerging startup ecosystems, encourage entrepreneurship and connect the world’s visionaries. In each of the 50+ cities, we invite one startup to come to Switzerland to pitch to win up to $500k investment. Our recent winners and investments include startups from South Korea, Nigeria and the Philippines.
