Seedstars World

Seedstars World to hold on August 4th in Kampala, Uganda

Seedstars World, the global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes is set to hold on the 4th of August at the Outbox hub where up to 10 of the best seed stage startups will be invited to pitch.

The Kampala event is part of Seedstars mission to place the spotlight on entrepreneurs from emerging markets. Seedstars World is travelling to more than 75 countries this year to identify the best seed-stage entrepreneurs and provide them with an opportunity to win up to USD 500,000 and network with investors and mentors from around the world. Its previous participants have raised over USD 61M collectively, providing employment to more than 1000 employees worldwide.

The companies selected to pitch at the Seedstars Kampala event need to be less than 2 years old, have raised less than USD 500,000 in funding and have built a minimum viable product, ideally with existing traction. The Seedstars World team is searching for one additional criterion – the startup’s regional and global scalability.
“Seedstars World is a platform connecting investors to the next generation of startup entrepreneurs, pulling the spotlight from Silicon Valley and Western Europe. Uganda has never failed to produce top notch entrepreneurs and we are happy to be back again” explains Claudia Makadristo, Regional Manager for Africa at Seedstars World.

Seedstars World is also working very closely with Enel Green Power to source the most innovative business models in the energy sectors and ones that are fostering socio-economic development in rural villages in Africa. Up to 5 best startups in this sector will be invited for an exclusive RES4Africa networking event taking place later this November in Nairobi and compete for an Africa Energy Prize which consists of a financial contribution and a three-month acceleration programme for a total value of up to 50,000 USD.

Applications are open now, and startups can apply here: https://seedsta.rs/kampala2017
