About Seedstars Acceleration Program

Seedstars Acceleration is a 3-month long onsite acceleration program held with local partners across different regions of the globe.

  • Teaching and training experience is a plus
  • Passion for startups and technology, particularly in emerging markets
  • Flexibility & International exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice
