Early-stage pitching competition Seedstars World held its latest global final in Switzerland earlier this month, which was won by Ghanaian agri-tech startup AgroCenta. The company also has seven Seedspace hubs globally, including ones in Nigeria, Ivory Coast and South Africa, and is expanding its expansion with the launch of Seedspace Cairo.
Seedspace Cairo aims to support the local entrepreneurship scene by offering a home from which Seedstars will deploy its different acceleration and academic programmes. It will have a co-working area, and a co-living area, an accommodation alternative for those wishing to come to Cairo and experience the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
The five best startups from Egypt will be invited to pitch in front of an investment panel and compete to be crowned the most promising seed-stage startup of Seedstars Cairo 2018. The winning startup will join the global Seedstars Family and take part in the regional and global Seedstars Summits that include our tried and tested bootcamp and investor forum. It's a catalytic platform for high growth emerging market startups.
In addition to seeing the top startups pitch, this day marks the grand opening of Seedspace Cairo, 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 $1million in investment.
