Seedstars World (SSW), the global community and platform for entrepreneurs in technology in emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes, is hosting Seedstars Summit, the thirds of the annual Africa Summit that connects the most relevant players in innovation and technology with the world and between each other.
The Africa Regional Summit will last for 3 days and bring together over 800 attendees commencing with a bootcamp for the participating startups, an ecosystem tour, investor day and culminate with a Conference and Pitch event on December 14th that will feature the startup pitches, keynotes, and panel discussions that will engage a range of topics and ideas pertinent to entrepreneurs in the region.
“We are very excited to be able to bring the entire network together in Mozambique later this year and together look into some of the opportunities of the continent and explore how technologies can rapidly improve the current status quo in emerging markets worldwide.” says Claudia Makadristo, Regional Manager for Africa.
The 3rd edition of Seedstars Regional Summit in Africa, follows Morocco and Rwanda and is a unique opportunity, not only for international visitors to get first hand contact with the local tech and entrepreneurship scene but it’ll also be a great opportunity for the local brands, sponsors and entrepreneurs to expose their products and services to a larger audience.
The summit day kicks off with a number of workshops and roundtables addressing EduTech, EnergyTech, AgTech, Fintech, Healthtech and more.
Over 20 of the most prominent entrepreneurs from the continent will be invited on stage to showcase their success stories and how they are using technology to solve local and regional issues.
Prior to the conference, Seedstars World will host a 2 day invite-only Bootcamp, where local and international pre-selected startups will work with world-class local and international mentors on improving their business models, growth strategy and mastering the investor pitch. In addition to that, this year’s program will also give entrepreneurs the opportunity to be selected for the Seedstars Growth program, a seed investment that comes together with a 15 weeks acceleration program for early stage startups.
