Together with the Swiss FDFA’s Human Security Division, Seedstars has just launched the Migration Entrepreneurship Prize, which aims to support socially inclusive businesses working in the field of migration.
The competition is looking for seed-stage startups with MVP and initial user traction which are operating in MENA and Africa, and provide an innovative solution to reduce the vulnerability of migrants. The working language must be English or French.
The finalists will be announced on 20 February, when the 10 most promising ventures will be invited to join the Seedstars Investment Readiness Program, and 5 out of them will attend the Global Seedstars Summit in Switzerland in April 2020, participating in the 3-day bootcamp with mentors and investors. The final winner will be selected and announced during the Seedstars Summit 2020.
Your venture must tackle solutions in MENA or Africa and can be aimed for society at large thus aimed at migrants and the local population. It can be implemented in the origin, host and transitory countries.
