The Seedstars World Competition, the largest global event for startups from emerging markets, is now live! look at it Here:
The tech entrepreneurship scene is largely dominated by western startup stories, unicorns with incredible reviews, and extremely charismatic founders. What about the rest of the world? More than 85% of the world’s population lives in so-called developing countries or so-called emerging countries. They arise because they bear deep historical burdens which in the past have prevented them from competing with international powers on a global scale. But they now have immense potential to lead the future of our planet.
That’s why this year TNW teamed up with Seedstars, a completely remote startup investor and accelerator that has been hosting the largest startup competition in emerging markets since 2013. After a startup selection process with over 5,000 applicants, over 90 local competitions and over 10 ecosystems at networking events, 20 regional selection events and five regional finals, only five startups are left to fight for the title of Seedstar Global Winner.
The winning startup will receive a $ 500,000 stock investment award and join Seedstars International’s investment portfolio, which currently includes 67 high-growth companies from over 30 emerging markets.
