Forget Silicon Valley, Berlin & Co - startups sprout around the globe!
When thinking of where to find the best tech startups one may tend to buy a plane ticket to Silicon Valley, discover Berlin’s startup scene or make a trip to London. At LingoHub we believe that amazing ideas are created around the world, not only at these hotspots. And that’s where Seedstars World enters the stage.
‘Building up a truly international network of entrepreneurs from various spots around the globe.’ - This great idea popped up in the mind of Alisée de Tonnac and Pierre-Alain Masson and led to the foundation of Seedstars World, an exclusive worldwide competition for startups from fast growing economies. And that was the right decision. Referring to TechCrunch Seedstars World was one of ‘The Best European Events for Startups in 2014’.
True to its mission statement ‘Discover startups from emerging countries’ Seedstars World is travelling the world for the third time this year to find the best startup. Promoting startups in the fields of technology, web and mobile is considered to be one of Seedstars World’s main goals.
Seedstars World unifying the spirit of innovation
In more than 50 events across Asia, Africa, Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) 50 regional winners are chosen. Those 50 entrepreneurs are going to compete in the final event taking place in Lausanne in March 2016. After pitching their innovative products and enterprises the winner is going to be selected by a jury consisting of investors and entrepreneurs from top ventures.
The final event is going to be hosted at the SwissTech Convention Centre at EPFL. Within the framework of this exciting event startups from emerging hubs get access to breakout sessions, panel discussions and specialized workshops by top speakers. Further they are connected to other innovative startups and compete for equity investment of up to $1.5mn.
LingoHub and Seedstars World - a perfect matching
Alisée de Tonnac once described Seedstars World as the business ‘Olympics’ where LingoHub certainly wants to contribute. Both Seedstars World and LingoHub have already been grabbed by the ‘startup fever’. At LingoHub, we consider ourselves as geeks when it comes to globalization. We love to support ambitious companies on their way to internationalization with localized products.
