Seedstars World, the global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes is coming for the third time to Angola.
The event is line with its mission to place the spotlight on entrepreneurs from emerging markets to provide them with an opportunity to win up to USD 1,000,000 while networking with investors and mentors from around the world. Its previous participants have raised over USD 61M collectively, providing employment to more than 800 employees worldwide.
The companies selected to pitch at Seedstars Luanda 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.
The event will be held at TGI Building on October 13th and up to 10 of the best seed stage startups in Angola will be invited to pitch. Applications are open until October 5th and startups can apply here: https://www.seedstarsworld.com/event/SSW-Luanda-17/.
