We, the team Seedstars, had this crazy idea of organising a worldwide startup competition that would take place in 20 countries, in all continents and we would eventually invest in the winning company. We planned our travels with the help of the Bizpora team.
Backpacker style and Bizpora style we took off in March 2013 for a 10 months trip starting from Moscow and then Dubai, Baku, Accra, Kigali, Lagos, Nairobi, Cape Town, Bangalore, Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, Sydney, Mexico City, Santiago, Buenos Aires, and we finished with Rio de Janeiro in December 2013. Our project took the name of Seedstars World.
After 10 months of travel in 20 cities and meetings with entrepreneurs from everywhere, we are thrilled to be part of the startup scene and get very excited to have a chance to add real value.. Thanks again to all Bizpora members for their hospitality, kindness and for taking the time to meet with us! This world tour could have never been the same without you.
Should you want to attend our final event (www.ssw.vc), discover what we’ve learned and check out the best 20 startups that we have met during our world tour, then let’s meet on February 4th 2014 in Geneva! Here’s a special discount for you: Bizpora30offSSW13
We’ll be renewing this amazing experience in 2014 and hopefully the years to follow!
Your Seedstars Team
