Seedstars World is coming to Singapore!
This year we are proud to be part of CommunicAsia, Asia’s pinnacle ICT Trade Event. Recognising technology’s growing impact on the region’s economy, CommunicAsia and EnterpriseIT brings together global ICT players providing the technology and innovations that are enabling digital transformation of businesses and cities across Asia.
The 8 best startups from Singapore will be invited to pitch in front of an investment panel and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Singapore 2017. The winning startup will join the global Seedstars Family and get a free trip to both the Seedstars Asia Regional Summit and the Seedstars Global Summit that include our tried and tested bootcamp and investor forum, and the opportunity to win up to USD 1 million in equity investments. It’s a catalytic platform for high growth emerging market startups. Winners will also be considered for acceleration in the Seedstars Growth Program.
In addition to seeing the top startups pitch, you can look forward to an event filled with disruptive tech, inspirational discussions, networking sessions and one flight ticket for the winner to come to Switzerland to compete for over $1mn in investment.
In order to provide local entrepreneurs with this opportunity and support the ecosystem, Seedstars World is working closely with SGInnovate and OC Queen Street. Further support in sourcing the best tech startups in Singapore is provided by NUS Enterprises, Impact Hub, Collision8, Finlab, and Nest. NHST Media Group Asia is supporting the event as the key media partner.
Remember, we are looking for startups who are less than 2 years old, have less than 500K in funding, and who have an MVP in tech with demonstrable traction!
