Microsoft has partnered with Seedstars on the three-day Seedstars Summit Africa set for December 3rd to 5th.
Microsoft will host an exclusive workshop session during the Seedstars Bootcamp with 50+ entrepreneurs, including the 23 Seedstars World local winners.
The third and main day (December 5) will welcome all the participants willing to learn the latest tech trends, network and meet inspiring founders and entrepreneurs.
“Microsoft was once a start-up itself, and so we’re passionate about supporting entrepreneurs in their growth journeys, providing access to technology tools, networks, skills and mentorship,” says Chris Lwanga from Microsoft. “Through our various initiatives, including Microsoft 4Afrika and Headstart, we’ve been fortunate to work directly with hundreds of African start-ups. Our focus is on partnering with influential partners, like Seedstars, to build an enabling and self-sustaining environment. Start-ups are at the forefront of innovation that unlocks economic value and societal impact.”
The ten most promising ventures will then be selected to participate in the Seedstars Summit 2020 in Lausanne, Switzerland and compete for the title of the Seedstars Global Winner. The participating teams will get a chance to pitch their idea on the main stage along with 60+ startups from all over the world and win up to USD 500 000 in equity investments.
