Application Now Open For Seedstars Kampala

Application is now open for Seedstars World in Kampala, Uganda. The event seeks to see 10 Ugandan startups pitch at the Kampala-based edition of the contest, with the winner representing Uganda at the global finals in Switzerland.

The winner of each local event from different parts of the world are invited to the finals of the competition which will be held in Switzerland in April 2018. They will stand a chance to win up to US$500,000 in equity investment.

Richard Zulu, co-founder at Outbox Hub and an organising partner of Seedstars Kampala says: “Together with Seedstars, we have been able to demonstrate to the local ecosystem that simplicity of solutions and businesses is key to driving entrepreneurship growth based on the teams that have represented Uganda. The Kampala event yet presents another opportunity for our local community to share knowledge and be part of the discussion on how to grow entrepreneurship in emerging markets.”

To feature in the competition, startups must be less than two years old, have raised less than US$500,000 in funding and have built a minimum viable product, ideally with existing traction.
