On March 3rd, Seedstars World will host a huge event in Lausanne Seedstars Summit, which will bring together more than 50 startups, key ecosystem players, inspiring speakers and seasoned investors.
But I’d like to have your focus on Seedstars World Competition for seed-stage startups. Think of it as the final battle between teams from 55 countries, where they had won regional contests held by Seedstars World throughout 2015 across emerging markets with high innovative potential: Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, Latina America, Middle East and North Africa.
At the final event in Lausanne, the best startups will pitch to win a cash prize of $500M, and 7 travel startups will compete for another half a million US dollars offered by the sponsor Lastminute.com, an online travel and leisure retailer. No equity taken in both cases!
Here’re the CEE startups that got the lucky ticket to the event:
All the startups will be able to meet the representative of about 80 funds from Investor Club, curated by Seedstars World.
Igor Ovcharenko, regional manager for CEE and MENA at Seedstars World, commented to GoalEurope: “CEE is a booming region in terms of startups with disruptive potential, however not all countries are equal in terms of access to capital and mentorship. Poland and Estonia are the most advanced in this respect, but we are also sure that we’ll be hearing more and more success stories coming from Russia, Lithuania and Ukraine. At the Seedstars World Summit, we will present Seedstars Index, which ranks countries based on such factors as access to capital, ecosystem, and government.”
