Have you already made your plans for December? If you have, double-check your agenda for the 14th. Why? Because Seedstars World is coming to Manama for the second time in a row and you simply cannot miss it!
After its huge success last year, the prestigious event is coming back to gather more than 300 young entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and corporate leaders from the Middle East, Europe, Northern Africa and the US. As usual, the primary goal is to encourage entrepreneurship across MENA, accelerate the startup community, and offer investment opportunities.
The two-day event includes a conference and a boot camp. The winning startups from all the nine Seedstars MENA competition will have the chance to attend it and eventually to participate in a boot camp. The first day starts with an inspiring conference to boost your knowledge about the startup ecosystem and give you some useful insights. Among the keynote speakers this year, you will find Zeid Husban, Co-Founder & CEO of POSRocket, the innovation catalyst Kamran Elahian, Alisée de Tonnac, CEO of the Seedstars World, and many others.
Selected startups will join the boot camp on the second day. They will compete to represent their nations in the finals that will be held in Switzerland in April 2018, and win up to US$ 1 million in funding.
