Event Description

Making its debut in Uganda, Seedstars World is coming to Kampala for its twelfth event of the 2014 tour. This year, SSW will partner with the Outbox, where the event will be hosted. The event is free to join.

More than 600 entrepreneurs from two thousand applications will be selected for the 30 pitching events in 2014.  The new round will also incorporate old friends, as former SSW regional winners continue to be part of the journey to help the company reach even more startups in their respective ecosystems. Alisee de Tonnac, CEO, stated that “Seedstars World will hold its worldwide competition every year and grow exponentially to all the corners of the world and put all the fast growing startup scenes on the map! Indeed, our goal is to create THE network for quality entrepreneurs around the world and help entrepreneurs, accelerators/incubators, co-working spaces and investors to interact with one another.”  The network aims to spread the Seedstars spark, which accelerated the regional winning startups’ progress by tripling their funding on average during the first edition in 2013. This currently amounts to a total of 6 million USD of follow-up funding.
