About Seedstars

Seedstars is a global company headquartered in Switzerland, with a presence in 80+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship. The company is organised around two key activities; 1) Seedstars Programs and 2) VC investing.

About the Programs Team 

Seedstars Programs implements capacity-building programs with financing solutions for entrepreneurs in Emerging and Frontier Markets.

Seedstars works with public and private sector partners in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America who are passionate about making a difference in emerging markets through entrepreneurship and technology.

The majority of our programs are SDG-driven and tackle some of the world's most pressing challenges like climate action, gender equality, migration, smart and sustainable cities, and financial inclusion. We co-create the best possible program interventions with our partners targeting startups and SGBs in all stages of their development:

  • Growth and Expansion Programs for teams with multiple months of stable growth and product-market fit that can now focus on business and growth
