Event Details

October 19th 2014, Santiago- Seedstars World (SSW) will return to Chile on November 7th 2014, continuing on its journey to emerging markets and fast-growing startup scenes.

 

Based in Geneva, Switzerland and founded by Alisee de Tonnac and Pierre-Alain Masson, the competition is supported by the venture builder Seedstars SA. After a first successful edition in 2013 across 20 cities, SSW expanded its competition massively to more than 30 countries. Regional winners are invited back to Geneva to pitch for an equity investment of up to USD 500,000 in February, 2015. The regional events feature up to 20 startups, which must prove their worth in six minutes of pitching time and withstand the questions from a local jury of experts, and a Seedstars World representative.

 

Alisee de Tonnac, SSW CEO, stated that “Seedstars World will hold its worldwide competition every year and we are expecting to grow exponentially to all the corners of the world and put all the fast growing startup scenes on the map! Indeed, our goal is to create THE network for quality entrepreneurs around the world and help entrepreneurs, accelerators/incubators, co-working spaces and investors to interact with one another.”

 

Flitto, an innovative crowdsourcing translation platform from South Korea won the first place for Seedstars World. Founder and CEO Simon Lee explains that “after Seedstars World came to Seoul, and crowned us Regional Winner, doors opened for us and we really gained traction. The publicity it created was also fantastic and this [global] win will take us even further.”

 

This year, SSW will partner with Startup Chile and Urban Station Chile, which will be hosting the event. Further support will be provided by the Swiss Embassy in Chile, BST Innovation, Magical Startups,Exosphere, emprendeFCH, Chile Global Angels, Digital Glue,  Chyrsalis, Fundacity and Latam Founders, as well as media partner Think and Start and BlogsRelease.

 

The network aims to spread the Seedstars spark, which accelerated the regional winning startups’ progress by tripling their funding on average during the first edition in 2013. This currently amounts to a total of 14 million USD of follow-up funding.

 

“Seedstars World events are always a great chance to see an ecosystem’s best entrepreneurs pitch” Nellie Horn, Seedstars World organizer and jury member, explains. “We seek out the most innovative seed-stage startups that will represent Chile during our final event in Geneva, so apply today for your chance to go big!”
