Event Description

MyVLE has won the regional competition of Seedstars World, a global startup competition for emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes in 2014. An added highlight of the day was the speech from Mohamed El Yacoubi of Seedstars Venture Libassy. He passionately talked about how to build and launch a successful company with minimal means. The supporting partner OCP Entrepreneurship Network also spoke about how the local startup ecosystem shows that Morocco has a lot to offer and is headed to being one of the frontrunners in innovation and further showed their support by providing a cash prize of 100 000 MAD in total to the 3 winners of the competition (a cheque of 50 000 MAD went to the grand winner, a cheque of 30 000 MAD to the 2nd winner and a cheque of 20 000 MAD to the 3rd winner).

The event was hosted by the IBM Innovation center with local partner StartupYourLife, a Moroccan non-profit initiative that gathers and assists young Moroccan entrepreneurs. Payment solutions provider Ingenico, which is partnering with Seedstars for the African continent, was also present and spoke positively of the Moroccan startup ecosystem.
