From June to November each year, the Seedstars team looks for the most promising early-stage startups from 90+ emerging markets that will receive intensive training on how to be investment-ready. They will take part in local, regional, and global stage competitions, but only one of them will be crowned as the Global Winner.
Seedstars is a Swiss-based private group of companies with a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship.
Seedstars is present in 80+ emerging ecosystems. More than 100,000 people from all over the world belong to the Seedtars network, including 2,000 investors. More than 40,000 entrepreneurs from emerging markets became participants of our events and programs. The alumni network of the Seedstars World competition counts for 275 startups. We know that 85% of the companies still exist; they have created over 2,500 direct jobs and fundraised over USD 250,000,000. The follow-on funding rate of startups that we accelerated is over 40% which is as high as TechStars or YCombinator achieve.
