Seedstars world Kampala will hold on 30th September 2016 to find Uganda’s best seed stage startup to represent the country at the Seedstars Summit and win up to USD 1 million in equity investment.
Seedstars World is travelling to more than 65 countries this year to identify the best seed-stage entrepreneurs and provide them with an opportunity to win up to USD 1 million and network with investors and mentors from around the world. Its previous participants have raised over USD 61M collectively, providing employment to more than 800 people 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. With a strong network of international partners such as Inmarsat, INADEM, Standard Bank and Deloitte, Seedstars World is looking for smart startups that solve regional issues and develop profitable products for the global market, to support their regional businesses and growth.
Up to 10 of the best seed stage startups in Uganda will be invited to pitch for the opportunity to compete at the Seedstars Summit, that annually takes place in Switzerland.
