Seedstars, the Swiss-based private company with a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets, is on the search for the next big tech companies to add to their growing portfolio of startups. To source these startups, Seedstars is opening applications for the next batch of participants of the Seedstars Growth Program, providing the most promising ventures with both learning and investment opportunities.

With a portfolio of 59 startups across the globe, Seedstars is an active seed-stage investor with 54% of its portfolio companies having successfully gone on to raise follow-on capital from later stage investors including Omidyar, Sequoia and YCombinator.
Leveraging their strong brand and local presence in over 90 ecosystems, Seedstars’ access to a massive network of active mentors and co-investors, as well as their years of industry know-how, has enabled them to find and back tech companies from various markets and verticals. Seedstars offers support to emerging tech startups through their initiatives like training, academy, acceleration, and the Seedstars Growth Program.
The Seedstars Growth Program is designed to help companies with early signs of product-market fit implement a growth methodology and unlock their growth formula, positioning them to raise their Seed or Series A round. On top of receiving access to thousands of USD-worth tools like Amazon Web Services, Xero, HubSpot, and more, participating startups receive 50K USD in investment from Seedstars and potential follow-on tickets from Seedstars and its network of investors.
Just recently, Seedstars has concluded the Growth Program training for their 5th and 6th batch of startups. 18 companies hailing from industries like FinTech, HealthTech, FoodTech, AgriTech, TravelTech, HR Tech, and EdTech have undergone the 3-month post-acceleration program and pitched their solutions in the first-ever virtual Seedstars International Demo Day 2020.
“We’re always excited to see the innovative solutions coming from tech startups across the globe. As one of the few reputable institutional names available to early stage founders in emerging markets, Seedstars will continue to support high growth ventures that drive economic, social and environmental change,” shared Seedstars CIO Charlie Graham-Brown.
Startups operating in a high-impact sector, including finance, healthcare, agriculture, energy or education with a verified business model and product-market fit are encouraged to enter the program. To send in applications, visit their page here: https://seedsta.rs/33cRKok.
