Up to 10 seed stage startups to compete at Seedstars Côte d’Ivoire

Up to 10 of the best seed stage startups in Côte d’Ivoire will be invited to pitch for the opportunity to compete at the Seedstars Summit, that annually takes place in Switzerland.

At the same time, 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 USD 50 000.

The companies selected to pitch at Seedstars Abidjan 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.

Applications are open now, and startups can apply here: https://seedsta.rs/abidjan2017 by August 30th.

Seedstars World is a platform connecting investors to the next generation of startup entrepreneurs, pulling the spotlight from Silicon Valley and Western Europe. As this will be our third time to organize our event in Abidjan, our excitement level and expectations are high. We have heard so much about the bustling startup ecosystem in Côte d’Ivoire and we are now here to witness the reality” explains Anis Kallel, Associate at Seedstars World, “We are impressed by what we have seen in the continent so far and cannot wait to add startups from Côte d’Ivoire on our map.”
