Seedstars World (SSW) is a worldwide startup competition in emerging markets and fast growing startup scenes. The Seedstars World team travelled to 20 different countries in 2013 to bring back to Switzerland on February 4th 2014 the best entrepreneurs for a grand final and conference, hosted by LIFT. Nearly a thousand startups applied.
During the event, the main focus will be to give a glance at the opportunities for innovation and new technologies in emerging markets through booths, talks, information and of course the competition. The winner of the Seedstars World 2013 edition will receive an equity investment of up to $500k and be crowned “Best Startup In The World” by an international jury of experts.
More than 300 attendees are expected to take part in this first-time event. The crowd will mainly be composed of investors and entrepreneurs but international corporations, government executives, journalists and bloggers are also expected.
